Encourage your middle schooler to express his/her feelings productively with some of these 33 poetry writing prompts. Poetry deals far more heavily in expression and emotion than most other types of writing—which is why it’s a particularly great genre for middle-schoolers to work within. Tweens and young teens face a lot of complex scenarios and confusing emotions, and poetry offers a healthy outlet so that all of those feelings have somewhere to go. Writing their own poems on a wide range of topics from global issues to family relationships to the passage of time is something you will want them to do. Students should feel free to write any style of poetry they like, and the diverse topics they’ll find within these prompts will encourage them to express themselves honestly and openly as they see fit.
