Writing is a great way to boost literacy in the classroom, and daily writing is even better. We’ve created this free February writing prompt calendar to help your students develop a daily writing habit. If you are currently doing remote or hybrid learning, you can send this writing prompt calendar to families or add it to your Google classroom so kids can write at home.
This variety of both fiction and non-fiction writing prompts will help your students reflect on giving and receiving love, President’s Day, and Black History Month.
If you have a writing journal that you already use with your students, we’ve also included a plain-text list of our February writing prompt calendar below.
