Fall Writing Prompts for Kids
This set of free homeschool printables has eight fall-themed picture prompts that are perfect for back-to-school writing activities.
Why use writing prompts?
Kids can be really creative and imaginative, but sometimes they need a little inspiration to get started with a writing assignment.
One way you can help them start writing is with writing prompts. Prompts can help students develop their critical thinking skills, improve their writing and language skills, and explore new topics.
Preparing the Pages
These writing prompts are super easy to prepare. Just print and go! You can print the pages back-to-back, or you can print them one-sided. That is up to you.
You can also print extra “second” pages if you have a child who really likes to write and needs more lines.
In this packet of picture prompts, you’ll receive eight unique prompts. Each prompt is a picture only – no words. The top half of the page is a picture, and the bottom is lined for writing.
There is also a second lined page for each prompt. You’ll get the following prompts:
- an autumn princess/castle
- a witch and her black cat flying on a broom
- kids making “leaf” angels
- autumn gnomes at the pumpkin patch
- two kids sitting on pumpkins
- two children raking leaves
- autumn fox with pumpkins and leaves
- autumn fairies
