Easy Writing Prompts for Journals


Writing Prompts for Journals, Power Writes, Fast Finishers and Quiet Moments



One idea for writing time... type up some writing prompts and tape them to wide craft sticks.  Place the "writing prompt sticks" in a clear container 
marked "Writing Prompts"
These are suitable for writing one page entries in a student journal or writing notebook.    When you need a filler or a quiet moment, choose a writing prompt stick....read the prompt to the class...and have your students do a 'power' write for 10-15 minutes.  Easy to add more prompts as you go.  They are always handy for when you might need them.

Perfect for independent writing, too!  use these writing prompts for 'fast finishers' ...after completing their assigned work, student chooses a writing prompt and writes in his journal or writing notebook.
