3rd Grade Writing Prompts

Third grade is an important year. These free creative writing prompts make an effort to reflect some of the changes that are occurring at this time. You begin to develop stronger likes, dislikes, and opinions in general. Your discussions with friends and family become more advanced. This is also a big point at which you decide if you like or dislike writing.

As you are beginning to take in new experiences with the new found ability to express them more fully, writing is a huge component to being able to express yourself fully. Try these with your child or students and see what they come up with. Enjoy! 

Don’t get caught in the summer slide! Help to spark your little writer’s imagination this summer break with a fun and creative writing prompt. He’ll get to use the word bank to help him add more descriptive words to his paragraph.

If you want to become a better writer, the best thing you can do is practice writing every single day. But we know sometimes it can be hard to think of what to write about! So we put together this list of  creative writing prompts to give you something to write about daily. Whether you write short stories, poems, or like to keep a journal – these will stretch your imagination and give you some ideas on what to write about!
