140 characters writing prompt | Free printable

by | Nov 5, 2014 | Writing & Journal Prompts

It has been debated that social media leaves little room to express deep or complex ideas. How much can you really say in 140 characters? November’s free writing prompt will challenge your kids and teens to craft a tweet in which they describe themselves.

In the first space, have them brainstorm an assortment of words that describe their physical appearance, character, personality traits, and hobbies or interests. Once they’ve brainstormed, they can write their “tweet” in the blank rectangle that follows. Remember: the 140-character limit includes spaces and punctuation!

If they would like to practice first, they can do so on a sheet of blank notebook paper. The final result should be a description of themselves that’s as full and accurate as possible.

Would you leave the results in the comments? We’d love to see what your kids come up with!
