FREE Winter Story Starters

Print out each of the writing prompts (pages 3- 9). I suggest printing page 10 on the back of each of those pages. This allows more seasoned writers more space to continue their story on the backside.

Instead of story starters, these writing pages include a picture prompt. Children can color these pictures to match their stories if they’d like.

Each page includes a word bank. The word bank includes words that go along with each picture. Children shouldn’t be required to use each word. They are included for inspiration and for spelling help.

At the end of this pack, there is a page of word cards. This page can be cut into individual word cards or left whole. Children can use these cards for additional word inspiration or spelling practice as they write their stories.
