3. February Writing Prompts

In addition to our weekly paragraph of the week, my students love our monthly writing prompts. On the first of the month, I debut the new writing journals and introduce the choices of writing topics that are month specific. They really look forward to it!

In order to prep the February writing prompts, I print a thematic cover and writing stationary for each student. They really enjoy coloring the covers during snack or indoor recess. I print a copy of all the February journal prompts to include in their journal as well. Some teachers choose to print just a color version to display in the classroom. Others make the writing prompt cards available in a writing center. You can decide what works best for you!

At the end of the month, I put each student’s writing into a booklet with the cover on top. They select one piece from the month to edit and publish. They are a great way to show how much progress they are making as writers throughout the year. Parents really appreciate the keepsake of their work as well!
