Expository Writing Prompts
Writing is not just fun galore, it's an instant tool to inform, describe and expose. In expository writing, children write a complete informative or a revelatory piece about a topic; the difference between this form of writing and the creative and persuasive forms is that the former seeks to inform, while the latter either ignites a spark of creativity or drives home a strong message. All of this and more form the crux of our printable expository writing prompts worksheets. Let the young, aspirational wordsmiths start working on their skills with our free worksheets!
