Get students into writing with these 12 original photographs of American Flags to be used as picture writing prompts. These photographs were taken around the Washington D.C. area. Includes the White House, and flag adorned buildings in the area. The flag prompts will be great for February's patriotic bulletin board backdrop. President's day, citizenship, freedom can become a main idea topic. They will make a beautiful bulletin board of student work when completed with custom creative writing. Glue on red and blue construction paper for a crisp matted look for displayed work. Use flag picture prompts with: poetry objectives, short narrative objectives, main idea, informational text, etc. Meet common core objectives with prompts! I also like to copy about six pages of each master and then allow students to choose which prompt page they would like to glue into their writing journal. You could also have all students write from same prompt and hand out writing paper to be stapled to story starter page. Great writers need 20 minutes each day of writing opportunities to make notable writing gains. Ten minute explicit mini lessons will keep them moving forward with their voice and conventions.
Check out my writing genre posters too.
