Review: 100 Writing Prompt Labels on Teachers Pay Teachers

100 Writing Prompt Labels is a premium download from Teachers Pay Teachers. The packet provides a set of pages that can be printed onto standard 2”x4” labels. Each page contains 10 writing prompts to get students writing when they are having a hard time coming up with their own topic. Also included in the packet is an instruction sheet that can be printed and hung at independent writing stations or included with an assignment, as well as a few suggestions for different ways to use the packet.

These pages of writing prompt labels would make a great addition to a writing curriculum. Keep a stash of the prompts at a writing center for students to choose their own writing adventures. Make a game of some sort out of the sheets of labels as they disappear – a “countdown” of some sort, perhaps, or set up a reward system for writing each of the prompts on a given page. And the fact that they’re printed on “labels” will make them even more attractive to the sticker-loving crowd.

These files wouldn’t necessarily have to be printed on labels, though that is the design and – let’s be honest – a really cool feature. But printing the prompts on regular paper or even cardstock could open up a few more possibilities. Cut out each prompt and toss them all into a bucket; have students draw a prompt out of the bucket to get their “surprise” writing assignment. Tell a table or team of high schoolers to pick one prompt and each write their story to share with the others. Incorporate a counting game or even a twist on BINGO or Jeopardy!
