Grandparents Day Writing Prompts for Second Grade

Grandparents Day is approaching, and while it is fun to celebrate, we know you still have content to teach. Why not combine your writing lessons and your Grandparents Day celebrations into one with our guided writing prompts.

Just a few of the writing prompts for second grade included are

  • If you could give your grandparents anything in the world, what would you give them? Why?
  • What have you learned from your grandparents? What have they taught you?
  • Do you have a special memory with your grandparents? Why is it special? Does it make you happy?
  • And more!

This resource includes ten different Grandparents Day writing prompts in various writing genres. Prompts for informative, opinion, and narrative writing are included.

Some ideas to help struggling writers are

  • Complete the writing activities in small groups or in 1:1 learning sessions.

  • Provide your students with a narrative, informational, or opinion writing anchor chart to reference during writing.

Options for fast finishers 

  • Give your fast finishers another prompt worksheet to work on, and they can assemble them into a Grandparents Day book to give to their loved ones.
