Writing Prompt Ideas for the 100th Day of School

The 100th Day of School lends itself to thinking big and reflecting on past achievements.  If you are searching for a way to get students thinking creatively, try one of the five writing activities below.  They will challenge your students to combine prior knowledge and future aspirations.  They can also be easily adapted for students who have trouble with writing.

5 Writing Prompt Ideas for the 100th Day of School


1.  When I am 100, I will…

Encourage students to think about who they will be, what they will have seen, lived through, and experienced in their 100 years.  Will they have achieved all of their goals?  What job or jobs will they have had?  Complete the assignment with a self-portrait of themselves as they might look at 100 years old.


2.  In 100 years, the world will be…

How will the world have changed?  What advancements will have been made?  Will some of the major environmental and political issues that are present today be solved?  For those students who have trouble with writing, encourage them to create a travel brochure for Earth 100 years from now.


3.  100 days from now…

While it is always fun to think and dream about the future 100 years from now, it is also important to think about short-term goals.  Encourage students to think about what they want to learn, master, and do during the next 100 days of their lives.  Maybe they want to learn to become better readers or master riding their bikes within the next 100 days.  Create goal posters to hang around the classroom to remind them of what they are working toward during the next few months.


4.  100 miles from here is…

Break out the maps and discover which cities and towns are 100 miles from where you are.  Have students research the towns and write a tourism ad encouraging people to come and visit.  Travel brochures, a television commercial, or a poster are also variations on the idea that would work just as well.


5.  My top 100 favorite things are…

Whether in paragraph form or done as a list, having students think about their top 100 favorite things is a great way to make them more aware of their surroundings.  Use the list to generate graphs of common items and tie the activity in with a math lesson.  If 100 items is too many for your students, break it down to 10 or 25.
