Assorted Writing Prompts Calendar – Upper Grades

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 12 pages | Grades: 4 - 6

Monthly writing calendar with 240 writing prompts for the year.

A writing calendar that has 20 writing prompts for each month. Each box in the grid has either a generic or month-specific writing prompt. This teaching resource is a great way to encourage writing on a number of different topics.

Ideas on how to use this resource:

  • Print a copy for each student to put in their writing journals. This is a great activity to spend 15-30 minutes on at the start of each day.
  • Use it as a fast finisher activity. Students can highlight the writing prompts they have used on their very own grid.
  • Print out the color grids, and cut the month and boxes out. The months can be used on a pocket chart as headings, and you can display a new writing prompt each day.
