April Writing Ideas

Here are some tips for engaging your children with these prompts:

  • For younger students allow them to draw a picture to go along with the writing prompt.
  • Turn the writing prompts into an opportunity to learn speech by having your child present her story.
  • For an added grammar lesson have your child mark verbs, nouns, adjectives, etc. Perhaps you can ask your child to make sure her writing has a certain number of adjectives.
  • Have your older children edit their own work.
  • For fun, allow children to write a story together or read each other’s when finished and give alternative endings.
  • Perhaps you can list vocabulary words or spelling words and challenge your child to use as many possible in her writing.

FREE April Creative Writing Prompts Allow this time to be fun and relaxed to encourage the most creativity. Don’t worry about spelling or grammar until the writing assignment is complete. Once complete ask your child to go over the writing on her own first and then go over it together. Just have some fun and then go out for a nature walk!
