Getting kids lots of practice writing is crucial for so many early literacy skills. It doesn’t have to be beautiful handwriting, perfect spelling, or text book grammar – but they do need lots of practice! The more kindergarten, grade 1, grade 2, grade 3, and grade 4 students practice making sentences, using proper punctuation / capitalization, and expressing themselves, the better they will get. These October Writing Prompts are a handy tool to keep kids writing without prep work for the parent, teacher, or homeschooling family.
