Hi everyone! It’s time for my July Themed Writing Prompts! These are perfect for kindergarten and first grades. They’re no-prep, easy, and fun!

In kindergarten and through first grade I like to start beginning writing skills. I don’t do anything formal, but encouraging students to enjoy writing at a younger age is beneficial to their future writing. So to help out with that goal I put out some fun writing prompts you can use for kindergarten and first grade.

These are easy, short, and traceable. They give students fill in the blank options so they can practice their handwriting skills, good sentence structure, and basic writing skills. They also work on fine-motor skills and will have fun with the hands-on cutting, pasting and coloring as well as handwriting.

Sometimes adding in other fun activities can help your reluctant writers learn to enjoy the process!

This download includes six different writing prompts along with sample traceable word cards that students can cut and paste into the sample sentence. They can then re-write the sentence in the clipart image for more practice. You are welcome to use the sample word cards or help your students write in their own words as well.

I encourage you to have your students keep their finished work somewhere fun. They can color in the clipart image, cut it out and then add it to a bulletin board, writing notebook, or journal to keep.

I will be releasing a new themed set each month so feel free to use them in your classroom or homeschool as a fun way to be creative while practicing beginning writing skills!
