A simple way for writers to reward themselves as they progress through the prompts. Writers can tick or mark circles as they complete prompts. Remember prompts can be repeated, so the card doesn’t have to have all eight prompts completed and if a prompt is enjoyed, repeat it!
Eight Prompt Certificates
On the For Kids pages, there’s a downloadable certificate at the end of each prompt, affirming that the young writer has taken another step forward. If you are using the eight prompts in your school or organisation, they can be personalised. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like a set of these certificates with your school / organisation’s logos.
Downloadable Posters of our Advice From Authors
On our Advice From Authors page, published children’s authors have written responses to our eight prompts to inspire young writers to continue on their journeys. You can display the posters in your home, school, or organisation.
Celebration Template (For writing workshops in or outside of schools)
Use this template to celebrate your workshop group taking the next step on their writing journey. Whether they have just started writing or completed their first project, this template allows you to celebrate their achievement privately or publicly.
Celebration Template (Individuals completing the prompts)
As above, but for individual young writers completing the prompts alone. This resource is to celebrate the achievements of home-schooled children, children who prefer to celebrate their achievements alone, or children who are completing the prompts outside of a group setting.
