Imagine you received an acceptance letter to a magical school. What would your first day be like?
Just as Harry Potter stepped into Hogwarts for the first time, this prompt allows young writers to become students in a magical world of their own making. The first day experience can include meeting new friends, attending their first magical classes, or even a chance encounter with the school’s ghost. Encourage them to outline the setting, describe the magical classes, expansion on professors’ personalities, and capture the fantasy and intrigue.
