January – December Writing Prompts
Month by month students have between 15 – 20 (a total of 120) nature journaling ideas to help them get the creative juices flowing. Like all of our products, you’re encouraged to use them in any way that works best for your family. Follow writing prompts exactly, or tweak them and use them to come up with ideas that are best suited to your own nature studies.
The nature inspired writing prompts can also be used with notebooking pages, your own journal, notebooks, writing paper, art book, or any notebook-type journal you have on hand!
Sample Pages – Nature Writing Prompts

Get Outside – Get Writing
Our nature themed prompts encourage you to get outdoors and to observe nature closely, but most prompts can also be done indoors. They are best used with a yard, neighborhood park, sidewalk with natural areas around, garden, woods, or other nature area you can get to. Observing nature is a big part of nature writing.
Even students who hate to write can use the ideas to help them get better at it. Young students should be encouraged to draw the best they can (they will get better with practice) and write what they can. Younger siblings might want to practice drawing and writing letters or words that go along with the prompts.
Students who struggle to write can sound out words, write a little, sketch a little, and dictate some of the writing to a parent – or split them up and finish prompts the next day. The most important thing is to have them pull out the nature journals and do a little bit several times each week.
