40 Print-and-Go Writing Prompts for Grades 3-8

With 40 writing prompts, this Printable Writing Prompt Collection provides a weekly writing activity for a full homeschool year. Though some topics are more age-specific, the majority are suitable for both boys and girls in grades 3-8.

Most of the printable writing prompts feature lines on which to write, so kids can begin composing or brainstorming directly onto their paper. Simply print out a page and hand it to your student for an easy writing activity.

Your prompts include activities such as

  • creating an acrostic poem
  • designing a playing card
  • imagining a robot
  • writing your own "I Have a Dream" speech
  • writing a newspaper article about a mysterious theft

The wide variety of prompts includes persuasive, descriptive, narrative, and expository writing tasks. Some are silly---designing a robot for your dad---while others are serious—establishing a holiday for someone special. Nine of the prompts are seasonal (Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Valentine’s Day, spring, summer, Father’s Day, and Christmas). The other 31 are timeless topics that can be used any time of year.

Note: Three of the printable writing prompts in this product include reference to the resurrection of Jesus (Easter), the words of Jesus, or a proverb from the Bible.
