Primary Writing Prompts – Summer Bundle
Includes the months of June, July, and August. Color and Black/White versions available for all pages!
Check out our new Summer Bundle of daily journal prompts. These are a FUN and ENGAGING way to keep your students’ writing skills sharp. Great for students in grades K-2! Give your students extra writing practice over the summer and help to prevent that summer slide (yikes!)— Do your parents a favor and send these journal prompts home with your students to give them that daily practice we all know they need.
Daily journal writing in the classroom (and at home!) is a great way to help students practice their writing skills. Having solid writing skills is essential to student success. These journal prompts, which are targeted for students in kindergarten- 2nd grade, will help get your kids excited about writing. One of my students favorite times of the school day was when they had a chance to write in their monthly journal. Learn more about how you can use these journal prompts and the benefits for students!
How can you use this resource?
Print this resource out for your students and send it home with them over summer break! So many teachers send home work packets with their students to help keep their skills in check and to prevent that dreaded summer slide, especially for reading, math, and writing. Well for writing, we’ve got you covered! Look no further because this amazing writing packet is exactly what you need! This is an authentic, easy, and stress-free way for your students to practice their writing skills in just 15-20 minutes a day.
These journal pages are great for students in kindergarten-2nd grade having featured words, pictures, and a sentence starter on each page. There is also an editing checklist to double check that students wrote in complete sentences, used a capital letter at the beginning of all their sentences, used proper punctuation at the end, and that all of the special words were spelled correctly. After students write and edit their work, they can then use the framed space on the page to draw an illustration that matches their writing.
What are the benefits?
- It creates a predictable routine. Your students engaged in journal writing at school, and now they can continue doing journal writing at home. And parents will be so glad to see that their child is getting some daily writing practice over the summer!
- They can express themselves in writing with limited pressure. Writing is one of the most challenging tasks for students, especially for our struggling readers and English Language Learners. Journal writing is a time each day when they can write without worrying that they’re doing it “the wrong way.”
- Your students’ writing quality will improve. Through daily journal writing, they will naturally get into the habit of writing in complete sentences, using a capital letter at the beginning of sentences, and punctuation at the end.
- Students will have an opportunity to practice all of the skills they learned in school. By having them practice their writing over the summer, it can help prevent students from forgetting all the skills they learned in school and it can help them to form good daily writing habits.
- And best of all, it’s fun! Your students won’t even feel like they’re doing work, so it’s truly a win-win for everyone!
