Creative Writing Worksheets

Sample creative writing worksheet

Try these creative writing worksheets anytime you need a fun, worthwhile activity. These come with a special twist: You can ask students to include any set of ten spelling words in their stories!

These are unusual worksheets because they ask students not to write long, involved stories or essays. Instead, the assignments involve short, contemporary topics. These fun worksheets will spur a lot of ideas which you may choose to build upon in future writing assignments.

Worksheet #1 - Game On!

Students add 10 spelling words to the worksheet. Then they think of a new video game and describe how it works, using as many spelling words as possible. Printable links to all worksheets are below.

More Creative Writing Ideas

Give your students creative writing practice frequently. The benefits of this type of activity are huge. Students learn critical thinking, they use their imaginations, and they practice important language skills. Here are a few quick, anytime creative writing ideas:

  • Choose one letter of the alphabet. Ask kids to write the headline for a fictional news story that uses that letter as many times as possible. Then ask them to write the story in two or three paragraphs. 
  • Pose a "What If?" question for kids to write about. Examples: What if you had wings? What if there was too much food on the earth? What if oceans were dry? What if your favorite pop singer was your teacher for a day? What if your house became invisible?
  • Choose a familiar object in your classroom, such as a pencil sharpener, stapler, or globe, etc. Ask students to describe your classroom from the perspective of that object, using personification.
  • Contact me with some of your favorite creative writing ideas, and I'll share them here.
