Free Writing Resources!

Here are a few freebie writing prompts for you! 
I like to do writing prompts as a "do now" for the beginning of class. Here are a few of my favorites.
  • What is the biggest problem you have ever faced? How did it turn out?
  • Who are the people you care about the most?
  • What are your hobbies? Which hobby do you enjoy most?
  • You are grounded for not doing your homework at school. However, your best friend is having a birthday party. Write a letter to your parents/guardians to persuade them to let you go.
  • Write about a time when you have been the most scared.
  • You are a food critic, write a review of a meal you recently ate.
  • Write a short autobiography about yourself.
Another one of my favorites- finish the story! 

  • Listening to the radio the family huddled around the fireplace for warmth...............
  • Lee looked down the old, rickety basement stairs. Yes, the sound was definitely coming from the basement. Lee slowly walked down the stairs............
  • At that exact moment, the lights came on...........
These prompts are also a FREE download on TPT- check it out!
