Essays to Write
for Early Writers
The following are printouts with writing prompts for short essays. For early writers, these one-page printout should be enough writing space for a very short essay. For more advanced writers, extra pieces of lined paper will be necessary to complete an essay.
Instructions for the essay writers: For each essay, begin with a topic (focus) sentence that states the main ideas that you will be writing about. Then write at least four to five sentences that clearly explain the point of your essay. End the essay with a strong closing sentence that summarizes what you wrote. Check that your grammar, spelling, and punctuation are correct. Make sure to use complete sentences and write neatly!
