Winter Writing Prompts

Guest Author - Alissa Moy

Challenge your homeschooler with these seasonal writing prompts:

1. Write a Haiku poem about Winter.

2. Pretend you are a snowball and you are rolling down a hill. As you roll you get bigger and bigger. Describe what is going through your head during this experience. Use personification to "be" the snowball.

3. Create a Valentine card and free verse poem for someone special.

4. After researching our US presidents, choose one that you admire most and describe why you feel that way. Be sure to cite examples.

5. If you had the opportunity to run for president would you? Why or why not? If you would run for president, what would you hope to accomplish as the leader of your country?

6. You have just received a huge box of chocolates for Valentines Day. Describe the contents of the box, what each chocolate is filled with, and how they taste. Use plenty of descriptive adjectives. Utilize a thesaurus if you need to find different and unusual synonyms.

7. Read the "I Have a Dream" speech by Martin Luther King and describe what this speech means to you. How do you feel his speech impacted the world at the time he made it? How do you see it's impact now?

8. February is heart health month. List 25 ways to keep your heart healthy, from jumping rope to making a fruit salad!

9. Write a seasonal Acrostic poem for both January and February.

10. You have just been assigned the task of making a restaurant menu for Valentines Day. Create the menu from start to finish, and include descriptions and menu items for each, too.

11. You have somehow gotten lost in the forest in the middle of a huge snowstorm. Describe what you will do and what resources you will need to survive.

12. Did you make a New Years resolution? If so, have you stuck to it so far? If not, why haven't you? If you did not make one describe why you did not.
If you have stuck with it describe how easy or difficult it has been to do so.

Remember that your homeschooler can complete these writing assignments according to his or her grade level and abilities. Younger children will enjoy making pictures to go along with their writing, while older students will relish the challenge of researching the prompts before writing.
