Looking for winter writing prompts that are no-prep and actually FUN for students? These 30 winter writing prompts with crafts are the perfect solution for any kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd or even 4th grade students.
What are these Winter Writing Prompts?
These 30 winter writing prompts are PRINTABLE (or digital) no-prep seasonal prompts for your students to use during writing centers in January. The seasonal prompts cover every genre and can be used for either whole group, warm up or independent work.
Students will write about the winter writing prompt, then color and cut out a craft with each activity. These are designed so students can do one winter writing prompt per day, but can be used as needed for your classroom.
No additional materials should be needed to teach the topics – these are student friendly prompts that students will have basic knowledge about already.
EVERY writing genre is covered:
- 7 Informative Writing Prompts
- 7 How To Writing Prompts
- 8 Narrative Writing Prompts
- 8 Opinion Writing Prompts
- 30 Writing Prompts in 4 Different Formats (described below)
- Teaching Tips
- Student Direction Page
- Extra Writing Pages for Each Format Listed Below
- Link to Google Slides (on page 4 of the PDF)
- TpT Easel Activity
There are 4 versions of every prompt included, plus a digital file.
- No Lined Writing Paper – Students can DRAW images on this page in response to the winter writing prompts.
- Dotted Primary Lined Writing Paper – Students can use the dotted lines to respond with 1-2 sentences about the winter writing prompt. A brief editing checklist is included at the top of the page for students to check their sentence writing.
- Large Lined Writing Paper – Students can use the larger spaced lines to respond with 3-7 sentences about the winter writing prompt. An editing checklist is included to help students make sure they have all of the proper sentences needed, including a topic, 3 events/reasons/facts and a closing.
- Small Lined Writing Paper for Paragraphs – Students can use the smaller spaced lines to respond with a single paragraph or multiple paragraphs about the winter writing prompts. An editing checklist is included to help students make sure they have all of the proper sentences needed, including a topic, 3 events/reasons/facts, detail sentences and a closing.
There are extra blank writing pages that can be added to project for students who need more space for their writing.
These winter writing prompts are also provided in both Google Slides and Easel. I suggest allowing students to type their answers, print out their work, and complete the craft that way (if possible).
