A prompt is designed to get your child writing. It gives the main idea of what they are to write. The trick is to get from the prompt to the opening sentence. For young children, this takes some practice. For older children, it may not be so tough. Here are some back to school prompts, none of which is to be answered with a single word or sentence. Each of which should be answered with an opening sentence, three details that go with that sentence, and a closing sentence:
- What will school be like this year if it is the best year ever? Opening Sentence: If this is the best school year ever, it will ….
- Who do you hope will be in your class?
- Who do you hope won’t be in your class?
- Which teacher do you want this year?
- Which subject are you looking forward to this year?
- What are you looking forward to doing with your friends at recess?
- Are you going to be in any clubs or sports this year?
- What would you like for dinner on your first night of school?
- Do you want to bring lunch or buy lunch?
