What are some good February writing prompts? Well, in February we celebrate two important events—Black History Month and Valentine’s Day. The former is the perfect opportunity to reflect on our past and all of the opportunities in life that we’re grateful to have, while the latter encourages us to focus on love and friendship in our lives.
In this month’s list of February writing prompts for kids, students will practice expressing the two essential emotions of gratitude and love.
Each prompt asks students to express their gratitude and love for a particular aspect of their lives. From their favorite memories to their best friends, students will have the chance to think carefully about the wonderful things and people they’ve been given.
For some students, it might be helpful to write their expressions of gratitude and love in the form of a letter—and Valentine’s Day could be the perfect time for kids to share their feelings with those in their lives.
