Awesome Boys’ Writing Pack

Awesome Boys’ Writing Pack

This motivating writing pack is chock-full of eye catching journal covers, engaging story prompts and super awesome extras that make writing fun for boys and easy on you.

The pack includes 90 motivating story prompts about things boys love most – dinosaurs, pirates, outer space, monsters…. If you want to use the set as a journal, print all of the pages and have kids work through each story one by one. OR, if you’d rather pick and choose the sheets that most interest your boys, look through the set and print the winning prompts.

You can grab the girls’ version HERE.

I wanted the pack to be super versatile so I designed it with plenty of options so you can easily tweak it for your specific needs. The pack includes 90 motivating story prompts about things boys love most – dinosaurs, pirates, outer space, monsters…. need I say more?!

When you’re making copies, be sure to consider how capable your writers are. For preschoolers and early kindergarteners, you’ll likely want to leave the sheets as they are so kids have just a few lines to fill with writing. But for more advanced writers (later kindergarteners and first graders), I also included a blank lined page that you can copy on the back of each story prompt to encourage them to stretch their stories and add lots of details.

To make the journals even more exciting, I included bright, eye catching covers plus black and white versions in case you’re a classroom teacher with limited access to colored ink.

 

EXTRAS:

To help kids take their writing to the next level, I also designed some helpful extras. For stronger writers, I included editing checklists. {Print them on bright paper to make them extra exciting.}

And for new writers, I created alphabet charts to help them find the next letter they’re trying to sound out in a word.

Ready to start motivating your boys to write?!

NOTE: All of our products are instant downloads.
