These writing prompts for 5th grade can be used for classwork, homework, no-prep warm-ups, quick reviews, fast finisher practice, and more! This is also a great purchase for parents and homeschoolers who want structured writing practice at home.
The 5th grade writing assignments cover the four main types of writing, narrative, informative, opinion, and descriptive. Nine writing prompts are included for each of the four main types of writing. You can choose when to assign each type of writing & writing prompt.
Our 36 Weeks of Writing Prompts for 5th Grade include a brainstorming template with a writing and illustration page. They are designed so that each prompt can last for an entire week. However, you may complete the prompt in one day if you prefer.
You’ll begin each week with a mini-lesson about the type of writing they will practice. The rest of the week can follow our suggested outline:
- Day 1: Brainstorm – use the brainstorming template provided
