First grade writing prompts are are a great way to help first graders not only practice their handwriting, but also get them thinking on a deeper level and organizing their thoughts on paper. I use quite a few first grade level writing prompts in my library after reading a book to my students and I always love to read what my students come up with about certain topics. Some of their answers can be pretty stinkin’ cute! I’ve been known to save a few just because they make me smile!
