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.
No need to worry if you’re a 1st grade teacher! There are also versions with simpler prompts and wider handwriting lines for your students! (These work great for differentiation in 2nd grade too!)
