Each set of narrative writing prompts includes:

  • Sentence Starters (By the time the guests arrived…)
  • Mentor Texts (Example: Imitate how the author uses hyperbole to express emotion…)
  • Visual Writing Prompts (Tell me how the instrument really feels…)

Prep is quick and easy… Just display the writing prompt on your projector or SmartBoard and have students write in their notebooks, or assign your daily quick writes on a digital learning platform and have students type on the provided slides.

A quick tip for teachers…

  • Read the narrative writing prompt, and set the timer for 5-10 minutes.
  • Encourage students to keep their pencils moving the entire time.
  • Don’t be afraid to write alongside them!
  • At the end of the daily quick write session, invite students to discuss or share their thinking.

In my classroom, we start our daily writing lesson with a quick write prompt! We use a wide variety of prompts throughout the year to spiral review our writing techniques.
