Writer’s block often gets in the way, so Write Source provides a list of writing topics and prompts for grades 1 through 12 that can get the imagination and descriptive juices flowing. Find out what a first-grader is willing to share and what toy a twelfth grader would never surrender. These prompts go far beyond the “What I did on my vacation,” and encourage kids to mull over ideas for both personal narrative and fictional writings. This list of topics is a great way to encourage students to be creative and write what they know.
