Even though I was never in school during the 4th of July, I remember writing about our country’s freedom and independence throughout the year. Now, as a homeschooling parent I can add in a few activities during our “slow months” that coordinate with the holidays and the kids don’t seem to mind. Writing prompts are one of my favorite ways to sneak in a little extra learning and maintenance work!

Summer may be here, but Independence Day is the perfect time to stretch their creativity with these 20 writing prompts any kid would love. :: www.inallyoudo.net

I have created some Independence Day writing prompts AND some fun Draw-then-Write pages for the younger ones (or your older kids who like to draw). If you little ones can’t write yet, they can still participate! Let them create a drawing based on the prompt and then ask them to explain it to you as you write it out for them. Then you can read it together. It is a great way to get their creativity going and foster a love of reading and writing! *sneaky, sneaky*

Included in these sets:

  • 20 Independence Day themed writing prompts
    • Manuscript lines for young writers
    • Plain lines for upper elementary
  • 5 Draw-then-Write activity pages
    • Manuscript lines for young writers
    • Plain lines for upper elementary
