I thought it would be fun to create some writing prompt notebook pages for Valentine’s Day. I like Munchkin to write a little each day. It not only helps her work on her penmanship, but it also helps her work on her writing skills and creativity. Having writing prompts to go along with the different holidays and seasons makes writing a little more fun. I allowed her to pick which prompts she wanted to use that day which she enjoyed. Depending on your child, you may find that it’s best to just give them a sheet each day rather than have them picking one.
What are writing prompts?
Have your kids ever sat down to write, but they were overwhelmed because they couldn’t think of anything to write about? Are they reluctant writers? Are they prolific writers who struggle to stay on one topic?
Writing prompts can help kids with daily writing as they give them a starting point for their writings. They help spark their creativity and get them writing. Writing prompts can help keep writers focused on one topic rather than bouncing all over the place.
How much should my child write?
Daily writing is good for kids, but you don’t want it to be a huge burden. For some kids, just writing down a couple of sentences is difficult while other kids can write several paragraphs with no difficulty. Start with a few sentences and increase the amount required as their skills increase.
You are the best just of your child’s strengths and weaknesses. You want to encourage writing and make it fun, when possible. At first, you may find that you want to write down your child’s answers as it allows them to be creative without needing to physically write down their thoughts.
If your child loves to draw, encourage them to draw an illustration to go with their story.
As always, these are free for personal use. If you like these, send your friends over here to download their own copy. Thanks!
