We all know about the standard national holidays in May, but what about those unique, sometimes off-the-wall national days to celebrate in May? As a homeschooling family, the national days to celebrate in May make for some pretty fun ways to think creatively and encourage literacy!

How do the national days to celebrate in May help out with homeschooling activities, you ask?

My kids have been thriving in the homeschool setting. If there’s one thing I’ve noticed, though, it’s that generic writing prompts can get boring real fast. When I was a teacher, I noticed the same with my students, so, there’s a chance your kids could be having the same experience. There are so many resources out there, but my boys have been loving my themed writing prompts because they’re fun, they’re relevant, and they encourage creativity and critical thinking.

When it comes to writing prompts related to the national days to celebrate in May, I typically let my kids complete them as the first task on their daily homeschool schedule. Starting the day off with a fun activity, in which there are really no right or “wrong” answers, gets them excited for their day and gets us started on the right foot. Since the printable set I made includes prompts for the entire month, the national days to celebrate writing prompts are pretty much a “set it and forget it” activity because I print out an entire month’s worth of prompts at a time.

The National Days to Celebrate in May writing prompt set includes the following:

  • an entire month’s worth of daily writing prompts
    • each page is dated by the month number date (ex. “May 1”), but not the day of the week, so this resource can be used for ANY calendar year.
  • 9 “national month” writing prompts
    • just in case you come across a national day writing prompt that you’re not jiving with, there are 9 for backup! These are NOT dated, but are month specific
  • a blank writing prompt template
    • just in case you want to use for other lessons
  • a printable with all of the National Days to Celebrate in May that we’ve included as well as 9 National Month themes we’ve included (just want that printable? Click here!)
  • a journal cover
    • plenty of space for doodles and personalization, there’s even a spot for your child/student to write their name to claim the writing prompt journal as their own
  • A copy of our daily Creation Challenges for the month
    • this supports the national days to celebrate in May topics, encourages creativity with hands-on activities, and even allows for you to share your child’s accomplishments on our Facebook and Instagram posts!
  • The best part? If your kids enjoy the writing prompts for the national days in May, I’m pretty sure they’d enjoy writing prompts for national days to celebrate all year long! Each and every month is available for purchase monthly or as a (coming soon) yearly bundle!
