Writing Prompts for Spring- May


May is the time to help students fine-tune the writing skills that they have learned all year long.

This targeted skill instruction can be a bit dull for my students at times. During these lessons, I ramp up the student engagement by using writing prompts for Spring. The writing prompts for Spring that I use in May range from silly to mysterious, but they all have one thing in common, a must-share factor. When I designed the May writing prompts for Spring, I knew that I needed to include topics like buried treasure, Mother’s Day, chocolate chip cookie thieves to keep my students yearning to write and share. By using May writing prompts for Spring that peak my student’s interest, the student buy-in battle is easily won and I can focus my attention on helping my students flourish as writers.
