Need to spice up your space writing prompts? This My Day as an Astronaut themed space writing prompt is a GREAT way to get students writing creative narratives. It also doubles as a perfect astronaut craft and space themed bulletin board.
Students will read aloud Mae Among the Stars (or any other space read aloud favorite). They will talk about what they would do if they were an astronaut. Students will then write their own story about “If I Were an Astronaut”. They will practice adding a problem and solution to their narrative writing. They will then top off their creative writing with a fun astronaut craft.
