Making eraser holes in their paper isn't the best use of their time...

big book banner

Giving a child a writing assignment can feel similar to putting them on the front lines of a battle.

Raise your hand if your daily writing time looks something like this:

1) Yelling, crumpled papers, and spears–uh, sorry, pencils—getting thrown at the wall.

2) Sobbing, tears, and pleas for mercy.

3) Frustrated children crumpling up their papers and demanding to know why you insist on inflicting this cruel torture on them.

Sound familiar?

frustrated girl with crumpled paper

I totally get it... I've been there too.

Many times.

As a homeschooling mom of four and a professional writer, it broke my heart to see my kids struggle so much with writing.

No matter how much I tried to teach them, they couldn't get past their frustration.

But the more I studied the art of writing, the clearer the solution became...

Writing is a complex skill with many parts and we simply cannot learn (or teach) them all at once.

We have to break it down into its simplest components, hone each skill, and then put them back together to create something beautiful.

And that's what we do with this program.

We take away the struggle of "what should I write about" and simply move on to the foundational element of writing: getting words on a page.

Some kids have the ability to enter the battlefield of writing with grace and ease, while others face off against a seemingly unbeatable opponent.

But no matter their skill level, all must face the first phase of battle - the dreaded blank page.

boy struggling with writing assignment

As parents and educators, we know kids need to develop strong writing skills to do well in university and their future workplaces.

And yet, so many kids are not mastering these critical skills.

The U.S. National Assessment of Educational Progress consistently reports that about three-quarters of 8th and 12th graders lack proficient writing skills.

But too often, we're just not sure where to start in addressing the problem.

If you're feeling unconfident in your own writing abilities, supporting a kid who has panic attacks at the word essay probably feels pretty intimidating.

And that can be the most frustrating situation of all: trying to help a child master the battlefield of story writing when you don’t even know where to begin.

While writing seems straightforward, it's actually a difficult skill to develop.

What if writing time brought smiles instead of tears?

The Big Book of Writing Prompts helps you:

confident
  • Help kids build confidence in their own abilities
inspired
  • Inspire them with exciting and engaging writing ideas
writing
  • Move them past the frustration of the blank page and straight into writing

testimonial

Seeing my kids light up when they write gets me so exited!

author image

I'm a professional writer and a homeschooling mother of four.

To my delight, we are essentially a family of writers. We spend our holidays, weekends, and car rides planning out books and troubleshooting plot points.

But it hasn't always been this way.

Even if writing is your favorite subject–or, as in my case, your career–teaching kids to write is a daunting task. Like swimming, once we learn to write, we tend to forget how hard it is to develop all the necessary skills and put them together.

We give them assignments out of a book and get frustrated with them when they're unable to complete it, but we're not always able to identify what the underlying problem is.

After several frustrating years of trying to get my kids to love writing, I realized I was expecting too much from them. I wanted them to be able to come up with an idea, organize their thoughts, structure a plot, write the whole thing out (with perfect spelling, of course), and edit it. Oh, and I wanted it in their neatest handwriting.

Guys, 7-year-olds can't do this!

I slowly learned to let go of my expectations and focus on one skill at a time, whether that was idea generation, brainstorming, spelling, grammar, or editing.

And we still write this way in our house. We have a brainstorming day, a rough draft day, an editing day, etc. We don't try to solve everything at once. We pick one skill to work on, and that's what we do.

I created these products to help you do that too. I see so many parents worrying that their kids are never going to learn to write adequately, let alone love writing... but who would love doing something that feels so monumentally challenging?

If we break it down for them into small, meaningful yet fun tasks that get their creative juices flowing, kids will want to write more. And when kids write more, their writing naturally improves.

No more tears. No more crumpled paper. No more frustration.

I can't wait to hear about the wonderful works your kids create.

FAQ

This is a crazy good deal. Are you sure this isn't a scam?

It's definitely not a scam. I love creating products that help parents and teachers instill a love of writing in kids and making them as widely available as possible. This deal truly offers a ton of value. I'm able to offer it at this low price because the sale is only available for a very limited time.  It's also backed by my 30-day money-back guarantee, so you can rest assured I stand behind my products.

What all comes with the purchase?

All products will be delivered in a digital format (mostly PDF with the exception of the visual writing prompt slide deck, which is a PPT file). No physical products will be delivered.

Depending on which edition you choose, you will receive separate digital files for each of the items on that side of the comparison chart above.

How will I get the product after I purchase?

Immediately after purchase, you will be redirected to a page where you will be given the option to download your book.

You will also receive an email confirming your purchase with a downloadable link. If you purchased a copy but are having trouble downloading, you can contact us by emailing hello @ mycuprunsover.ca (remove spaces) and we'll get you sorted out.

How long should we spend using your writing activities?

That's totally up to you! This is not a curriculum designed to take a certain amount of time to complete. These resources were designed to grow with your learners and keep them inspired for years to come.

That being said, the most important factor in becoming a better writer is how consistently you practice. For that reason, I highly recommend spending at least thirty minutes a day building writing skills.

The activities provided in the Big Book of Writing Prompts and the accompanying bonus materials could take up some or all of those thirty minutes.

Do you offer refunds?

Yes. We have a 30-day happiness guarantee. If the products don't meet your expectations, just reach out to us within 30 days of purchase, and we'll refund your money. All we ask is that you tell us how we can do better next time.

Is this book available in printed format?

At this time, the Big Book of Writing Prompts isn't yet available in printed format, but we plan to offer this option by September 2021. In the meantime, you may have your digital copy printed and bound at your local print center.

I am a teacher. Can I make copies of these pages for my students?

You may make copies of individual pages of the book to hand out to your students for writing assignments.  However, you may not make copies for other teachers.  

Also, you may not offer a full copy of the book to your students. If they or their parents would like to purchase a copy, please refer them to this page.

Are these writing prompts suitable for adults?

Although these writing prompts were curated for children, many of them could produce high-quality writing for an adult as well.

Specifically, the high school writing prompts section includes many topics and ideas that may pique an adult's interest.

Who is this book for?

This is a writing resource for educators (parents, teachers, aunts, uncles, or grandparents)to help teach and build writing habits. Or really anyone (young or old) who enjoys writing.

Would this gift make a good gift?

YES! Believe or not, there are many young closet writers out there - I happen to be raising a few - who would geek out at a gift like this. And maybe some who haven’t yet realized their passion for the written word…

How are the writing prompts organized?

The writing prompts are organized into 3 grade level sections: grades 3-5, grades 6-8, and grade 9-12.

Within each grade level, the prompts are further broken down by type of writing prompt. Each grade level has 5 different types of prompts: What if, Picture This, Story Starters, Journal Prompts, and Historical Prompts.
