Writing Sparks-Fun Writing Prompts!

This website was originally created by a fifth-grade teacher in Canada for
use by his own students, but he welcomes outside visitors. After checking
out this site, be sure to drop him a line to let him know what you think!

On this site you will find a variety of writing prompts for narrative and
expository writing. Each prompt opens to a new printable .pdf page with a
more detailed prompt at the top followed by blank lines below. The prompts
are really imaginative and include:

  • If I Had Six Arms
  • I Can’t Believe I Wore That!
  • Where in the World?
  • …and many more!

Below the prompts, there are several links to other writing prompt websites,
writing rubrics pages (how to evaluate your student’s writing), and a page
on writing your own prompts.

Be sure to visit the “Main Elementary Themes Pages” (click on the link
located at the bottom of the writing prompts page) to see all of the other
topics such as science, geography, spelling and health that are available
here. A lot of work has gone into this website. You’ll want to bookmark it
so you can return to explore it all!
