June Writing Prompts
Has your school ended for the year? Most classes have let out and children have welcomed the break with open arms – ready to enjoy being outside in the warm weather, sleeping in, playing with friends, swimming at the pool, and hopefully a fun family vacation. Sneaking some summer school is probably the farthest thing from their (and perhaps your) mind.
However, studies show that it is important to help kids stay engaged by reading, writing, and exploring their world all summer long. Plus, if your kids are like mine, they will start with the I’m Bored in 5…4…..3….. =)
This one page free printable calendar is a no stress, no fuss, NO PREP way to help kids practice writing over the summer. By practicing writing students will not only work on forming sentences, using correct grammar, and using rich vocabulary – but will continue to improve on forming cohesive thoughts and expressing themselves

June 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.
Since it’s summer there is no reason to apply more heat to your child’s day. Just allow your child to free write. This will give your child a chance to express himself without the added worry of making grammatical or spelling errors. You may continue the lesson by having your child edit it or edit together. Don’t feel badly about just allowing this a fun time of free writing for your child or even together!
