Creative Writing Prompts For Elementary Students
Write about something you desperately wanted when you were younger.
Write as if you were looking at a movie rather than a photograph. Concentrate on a particular habit that your mother has and write about it. Were you ever accused of something that you didn't do? Were you ever in a fire, flood, tornado, or hurricane? Write about a window you broke or something valuable you lost. What is something special and/or different about you? Write about two things that your family has taught you. Write about some of the things that you worry about. Write about the funniest thing that ever happened to you. If you had to escort a visitor from outer space for a 30-minute tour of your community, where would you begin and end? Be a grape that becomes a raisin: describe how it feels to shrink, to shrivel, to become dry and wrinkled. Your parents go into a store and tell you to watch your brother. Describe how it feels to be cold and firm and full of beautiful crystals but only to melt and lose your shape. You go to the store with your parents and baby brother. Describe the one thing that gives you the most comfort. If you could be a character in any book, TV show, or movie, who would you be and why? If you had to work in any store at your favorite mall, which store would it be and why? Describe the most difficult thing about being your age. If you could study one subject in school that wasn't offered, what would it be and why? If you had a chance to live anywhere you could, where would it be and why? Write about the pros/cons of year-round school or a four-day school week. What if the use of robots in school becomes a workable reality? What would you pack in your suitcase if you could not go home again? Convince him you would be the perfect specimen for him to take. If you could change one law, what law would it be and how would you change it?
