Eliminate prep time with this done-for-you book filled with creativity-inducing writing prompts neatly organized by grade and type!  

When you're trying to establish a writing habit at home or in a classroom, you don't always have that time to spare. You need kids to spend their time writing, not worrying that they don't have an idea. I've put these writing prompts, questions, and story starters together with much input from my kids so you and your students never get stuck in this position again. I love seeing kids fall in love with the craft of writing, and I hope these prompts help them leave the blank page behind and unleash their creativity onto the page.

This ebook is jam-packed with writing prompts to help you find exactly what you need to get your students writing. The Big Book of Writing Prompts features five types of writing prompts spread over three grade ranges so you can dive right in and put it to immediate use.


  • 100 "What If" writing prompts with compelling questions that will make your young writer really dig in to answer the question
  • 100 "Picture This" prompts with intriguing scenes that will get creative juices flowing 
  • 100 "Story Starters" that will help kids move past writer's block and get started quickly 
  • 100 Journal prompts that will encourage kids to do some deep thinking to find and reflect on their own thoughts and opinions.
  • 100 Non-Fiction prompts that will require kids to do a little digging to really uncover the facts about current events, historical events, cultural norms, and more.


The writing prompts are divided into three grade ranges: grades 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12.

There are 150 prompts each in the grades 3-5 and 9-12 sections and 200 prompts in the middle school section. This is because many of the middle school prompts can be used with either elementary students or high school students and we wanted to make the ebook as useful as possible to the widest range of educators.
