September Writing Prompts

Do you remember as a kid sitting at your desk staring at the wall when it was writing time because you couldn’t think of anything to write about?

This was me every single time… I could never come up with what I wanted to write about, I either had too many ideas or had none, but then one day my teacher gave me a journal prompt for kids to help spark me to start writing.

Guess what happened? My pencil started flying across the page writing about the prompt I was given. Writing prompts for kids are a great way to motivate kids to write and keep writing. It is so much easier to write when you have a direction as to what to write about, that is why we started our monthly writing prompts for kids series. 

So, if you missed our August Writing prompts be sure to grab yours.
