Make coming up with creative writing prompts easy and FUN with this free printable February Writing Prompts Calendar for kids of all ages!
But I don’t know what to write about.
Is that the response you hear when you assign writing to your child? It can be hard for a child to sit in front of a blank piece of paper waiting for inspiration to hit. How can you encourage your child to get that first word on the page?
The February Writing Prompts Calendar is a great way to provide your child topics to encourage inspiration.
February Writing Prompts Calendar
Monday through Friday during the month of February children will enjoy some of the fun facts and birthdays on the calendar that will give some interesting writing topics.
For example, on February 27th in 1807 Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was born. Children are asked to look up some of his poems and then write their own.
On February 6th the children learn that February is National Dental Month. The writing assignment that day is to write a how-to on taking care of your teeth. Children are often instructed to look up more information and write about what they learned. Each day provides topics your child will love to write about!
Helping Your Child Write
Some children may experience a little difficulty even with prompts. In that case simply have a discussion of the topic presented. Encourage your child to give an answer orally. Once your child feel comfortable have her write what she expressed verbally. If needed, you can have your child dictate her thoughts to you. Both methods will build your child’s confidence and eventually she will take that pencil and do it all on her own.
