Synopsis

500 Writing Prompts for Kids is a book full of story-starters catered to the elementary school age group that is perfect for your language arts curriculum! Writing on a variety of topics (50 topics in total) can help to improve your students' imagination, creativity, reading skills, vocabulary and comprehension. These 500 prompts are open-ended questions that stimulate the imagination even in the youngest learner, and they can help students to become independently literate. Teachers (and parents) all experience levels will find that there are more than enough prompts for the entire school year that can be used over and over again each year. It can be used by teachers, homeschool parents, babysitters, tutors and even overachieving third-graders!

The book contains prompts on birthdays, cartoons, time and space, family, the arts, religion, health, the four seasons and over 40 more! They work for blogs, scripts, stories, poems, essays and anything else your child might be interested in writing. Even prospective writers younger than first grade that are learning to read and up-and-coming authors older than fifth grade can use the prompts to stimulate their imaginations. Using these prompts any educator can find a story or book in his or her students!

Here are just a few of the applications the book can be used for:
* Writing tests
* Journal prompts
* Story, poem and essay exercises
* "Get to know your classmates" activities
* Spelling and grammar assignments
* Extra credit projects
* Writing songs, creating art and adding to bulletin boards

Author Bryan Cohen has spent several years creating prompts to stimulate the minds and pencils of adults and kids alike. His 1,000 Creative Writing Prompts: Ideas for Blogs, Scripts, Stories and More has sold over 5,000 copies.
