These July writing prompts are perfect for engaging your elementary-aged writers throughout the summer months.
We don’t do school all day during the summer. However, we do continue doing a little work several days a week to keep the momentum going.
This set of free printables for kids has thirty-one prompts for the month of July. That means, there’s a brand new prompt for every day of the month!
Elementary Writing Prompts for July
During the month of July, writers will write about summer, ice cream, favorite book characters, time travel, and more.
There are a total of 31 writing prompts in this printable pack – one prompt for each day of the month. There is also a blank page for those who need more room to write.
SUMMER WRITING TIPS
Here are a few tips to make writing more exciting this month:
Let your kids write with a pen. Our favorites are erasable gel pens! They don’t smudge and smear like the erasable pens from my middle school years. Emma likes to change colors as she writes each new paragraph, and I like that there are no scribbled out mistakes.
Print out all of the prompts at the beginning of the month, and assemble them into a writing notebook. Let your child choose a writing prompts each day. This gives them more control over their assignment and encourages them to write about what sparks their interest each day.
Don’t edit and/or proofread each writing assignment. Just let them write. At the end of the week (or end of the month), have them pick a piece to edit and publish. You can go through the whole editing, revising, rewriting process at this time. This eliminates the stress that comes with producing a perfect piece each time.
Fill your book basket with a great collection of writing prompt books. Most of these books can be found at your local library or used bookstore.
