No Prep 2nd Grade Writing Prompts

Literacy, Writing & Language, Writing Instruction

Written by: Krys Warstillo

Do your students look at you and say, “I don’t know what to write!” or “I have nothing to write!”? Here at Lucky Little Learners, we've got quite a few great ideas for helping students develop into great writers. A resource we love? These 2nd grade writing prompts! The writing pages allow you to design writing instruction easily. This resource includes opinion, informational, narrative, and free writes. As an added bonus, through the use of planning pages, word lists, and checklists your students will become more independent writers.

    I have the same question as Heather. When I add “writing prompts all year,” my cart says I need to pay $35, however, I have an All Access subscription. Can you please help me with this?
