Story Prompts: Toasted Calendar

Story Prompts: Toasted Calendar

If you are looking for resources for creative writing idea and spark your students’ imagination and creativity, here comes a nice resource: Toasted Calendar.

On the calendar, an interesting story prompt to write a story is given for each day such as “some good news”, “ one last photo from space”, or “make up a smartphone app for your characters.” You can also choose years or months to get more prompts. You can also view the calendar as a text or a table.

The prompts are more suitable for intermediate or upper intermediate students but this gives us the idea to create one for primary students as well. We can even make a calendar from cardboard and write the prompts on it. That can be good if some students are looking for more resources to practice writing in English.
