Here are 16 free Star Wars writing prompts to print! I am hoping that these will be a helpful tool for inspiring even the most reluctant writers. (Also good for when teachers and homeschooling parents and kids are all feeling burned out!)

These writing prompts are best suited for 3rd – 6th grade students, but some of them will work for 1st and 2nd graders also, especially the narrative ones. I included prompts that address narrative, descriptive, how-to, persuasive, and compare/contrast styles of writing. One prompt is an idea for a newspaper article, so lots of variety!

Printable Star Wars Writing Prompts for 3rd-6th Grade

Gresham and I did the first writing prompt a few weeks ago – which is your favorite of the Star Wars movies and why. We did a pre-writing map where he drew three circles and wrote three reasons why he liked that movie best inside the circles. Then he drew three lines coming out from each circle and wrote details to support his reasons on the lines. It was easy for him to write his three paragraph essay using his pre-writing map.

We tried out a couple of the story prompts last week. The boys had a great time and were very motivated!

    Thank you so much for these prompts. My 3rd grade son hates writing so I've been trying to think of writing ideas that he would enjoy.
