Developing A Daily Writing Practice: Journal Prompts

10 Aug

Welcome to Monday’s Muse! Every Monday morning of the school term in 2014, Write Away With Me posts an open ended writing and/or storytelling activity that you can try with your class or your children at home.

Our main focus for The Writer’s Club this term, is to foster a daily writing practice. To this end, we are busy creating resources to assist us. We have set up our writing spaces, made a 3 Year Sentence A Day Diary and this week, we’re exploring the art of keeping a journal. So I went in search for a new set of journal writing prompts and by chance, came across this list of 26 Questions Every Student Should Be Able To Answer . Whilst it may need to be adapted to suit younger students, these questions give young writers the opportunity to reflect and explore their experience of life and learning. The link above, will provide a wide range of options/activities for using these questions with your students.  I’ve prepared ten of these questions for our club members this week. You can download the ten prompts here.

 

Happy writing!
