These print & go writing prompts will keep your students engaged during the month of April! They were designed for fun writing and an opportunity for you to share special April holidays with your students! Students will choose three of the five picture words to help them complete each writing prompt.

Do the prompts have to be completed on a particular day?

Though the prompts included were written to be able to correlate with a particular day within the month, most could be used at other times. The writing prompts are not dated.

How many prompts are included?

There are 20 writing prompts included in the lined paper version as shown on the cover and they are also provided with handwriting lines. There is also an extra lined page in each version in case you want to copy a page of lines on the back to encourage longer writing responses.
