Having a few fall writing prompts for kids is a great way to get them interested in writing. The colorful season can bring on some great questions that you can ask. Not only are they fun but they are also educational.
Since I went over a few fun prompts for middle school, I wanted to make sure we covered the fall season. One of my kiddos is homeschooled, so having writing prompts has been a great way for us to get him more interested in writing.
It just makes writing more fun and the fall writing prompts are a great way for us to start the school year.
