A Month of Writing Prompts for Beginners: Flex Class
Practice writing fill in the blank stories every day for a month! #creative
US Grade 1 - 4
This flex class uses fill in the blank stories to get students excited about writing. It is for students already interested in storytelling or those more reluctant writers. Each day I will post a new fill in the blank story for the students to work on. They can type the story up, hand write the story, or print the sentences and fill in the blanks. They can even post a video of themselves reading their finished story! I will post a video of myself reading the story I created based on our...
The students will practice describing objects and emotions. Our stories will include sensory details besides sight so that they learn to describe things they taste, touch, hear, and smell as well.
I have a Master's Degree in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Spalding University. I love talking about all forms of writing and storytelling! Writing prompts are something I have used many times over the years, and I am excited to share that with my students. My goal is to inspire younger learners to discover a passion for writing and help them learn how to take the ideas in their head and put them down on paper.
Homework OfferedStudents will receive a one-page prompt per day. By the end of the course, students will have 30 completed one-page stories.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments OfferedI will comment on any stories shared in the classroom. While I will always be encouraging, I will also point out places that students could add more description or sensory details.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
