How To Get Kids To Write Using Outer Space

Do you struggle with getting some of your students to write? Try using fun and engaging topics like outer space to get them writing. Get your kids to imagine they're in a rocket ship exploring outer space.

Each week I feature a set of five writing prompts on a FREE print and go document. Today's writing prompts focus on outer space.

The Writing Prompts Include: 

  • Fly To Outer Space
  • Rocket Or Submarine
  • Moon Adventures
  • Take A Friend
  • Outer Space Facts

What Are Print And Go Writing Prompts?

Print and go writing prompts are one page documents that include 5 writing prompts.  Each set of writing prompts focuses on a different topic. You can use these writing prompts to support your students with their writing. Each prompt contains a number of questions to help them think about the topic.

Why Use Writing Prompts In Your Classroom?

Writing prompts are a great way to get your students writing. They help students to:

  • think of ideas to write about,
  • practice using different writing skills,
  • create pieces of writing they can be proud of, and 
  • help students grow as writers.

Steps To Using Writing Prompts:

  1. Students choose a writing prompt. Provide your students with a choice of 2 or 3 prompts. I like to provide students with two writing prompts and then offer them their "own choice of topic" as a third option. By offering these choices, every student in your class will have something to write about.
  2. Discuss the target questions for each prompt. As you talk about the different questions, your students will get ideas they can use in their writing.
  3. Encourage students to write as much as they can about the writing prompt.

How To Differentiate The Writing Prompts:

You can differentiate the use of the writing prompts by:

  • scribing for students who have trouble writing.
  • pairing up students to write about the journal prompts.
  • providing students with sentence starters that answer the target questions.
  • letting students who struggle with writing output use talk to text for their stories.

DIY Options For Using Prompts:

Options for using the writing prompts include:

  • projecting the prompts on the white board and letting students choose the prompt they want to write about.
  • creating cut-and-paste writing prompts for the different writing ideas. Students choose the prompt they want to write about and glue it into their journals.
  • adding the prompts to a binder or duotang in a writing center so students can write about the prompts in their spare time. The writing prompts help students develop their narrative writing and opinion writing skills.
