Ten journal prompts to begin the school year, complete with real picture answer choices for our non-verbal, non-writing students. Questions vary from opinion based (What is your favorite) to factual (Who was the) to procedural (What do we do when).
In my LIFE skills classroom, I project the page with the question and answer choices. My students who read and write sufficiently copy the sentence stem and choose their answer. My non writers have a miniature printed version of the prompt, sentence stem and answer choices to glue into their journal and choose an answer. When everyone has completed the warm up, we discuss our answers.
