Writing Prompts:

Think Quest – gives your student a story start and then they think up the rest of the story. I like to assign this to my children and then on their ‘private blogs’ they write their story. When they publish it it goes to just family members. It has been a great thing for all involved. (4th grade, 6th grade and 7th grade students)

Writing Prompts – Lots of different writing prompts to choose from.

Monthly by Day Writing Prompts – What happened on this day . .. then the children write about it.
