The writing pages in my monthly math and literacy sets have been a big hit with teachers and moms, so I decided to make you all a special set of First Grade Writing Prompts. Seasonal work is so much fun, so I’m planning to bring you a set for each season. This first set is for winter.
This first set includes 18 writing prompt organizers, 18 draft pages for those prompts, 2 blank draft pages for children who write a longer story, and an editing checklist for the students. The intent of this set is to help you take your students and children through the entire writing process from organizing their thoughts to writing and then editing their work. The draft pages can be printed multiple times to accommodate for 1st and 2nd drafts as the children edit and improve their writing.
This set is aligned with First Grade CCSS, and includes 6 Opinion writing prompts, 6 Narrative writing prompts, and 6 Informational writing prompts. The children will have fun expressing their opinions about topics applicable to them, telling stories, and explaining their favorite things. Each organizer helps the child introduce their topic, list facts, reasons, or sequential parts to a story (first, next, last), and then end with a concluding sentence. To make it even more fun, some of the prompts are fictional, but there is a good mix of non-fiction as well.
Here is a list of the writing prompts included in this set:
Opinion Writing Prompts for Winter
* My Opinion About Chores
* My Opinion About My Room
* The Best Thing About Winter
* The Best Holiday
* I Would Rather (Ice Skating or Hockey)
* I Would Rather (Snow or Sunshine)
Narrative Writing Prompts for Winter
* If I Had a Magic Car
* My Favorite Vacation
* Once Upon a Time
* The Best Day Ever
* The Day I Lost My 1st Tooth

Informative Writing Prompts for Winter
* My Winter Holiday
* My New Recipe
* How to Make the World’s Biggest Ice Cream Cone

The draft pages look like this, and can be used for first and later drafts.

Great worksheets! Any way I could just purchase from you the “when I grow up” page and not the whole set? I’m a school counselor and would love to use this for a career lesson with my 2nd graders.
Thank you! I would really love to be able to offer individual worksheets to those who need just one from the set. Unfortunately, due to the number of requests I receive and the amount of time required for each request, I am not able to do that right now. Sorry about that, and best of luck with those fun 2nd graders.
We’re a set of three schools located in Hong Kong. I usually design my own writing sheets… But…. new baby and low time led me to searching for some. As we have three schools, we were wondering about the licensing. As I usually design my own, I’m not familiar with the licensing rules for classroom materials.
I would be happy to help you with that. I will email you at the email listed in this comment. If you don’t see it, feel free to use the Contact Me feature on this page.
Love these ideas.
Thank you! I’m so happy you found them helpful.
