To make writing more exciting for first and second grade students, you need to give them a chance to grow their creativity and imagination.
The Writing Prompts Workbook is a collection of imaginative situations and questions that will get your students and children using their brains to come up with wildly creative ideas when they begin to put pen to paper.
Bryan Cohen, the author of 1,000 Creative Writing Prompts and 500 Writing Prompts for Kids, has compiled 200 of some of his best prompts for first and second graders in this workbook. Use them for journals, assignments, poems, conversations, songs and more.
