These 50 picture writing prompts are meant to be a fun way to engage students in the writing process when time or attention spans are short. You get 50 different picture writing prompts to choose from with the words "CAPTION IT" on them.
These work great for writing centers, on days where your writing time is cut short (late starts and early releases, anyone?), when students have lost their focus, or when you want to review or introduce how to appropriately use quotation marks.
In my classroom I used our Interactive Writing Notebooks for students to record their responses. But I have also included three printable options for your needs. Choose to have students write 3, 5, or 10 captions. (This could be for one picture, or you could complete that many during a specific timeframe).
There are not any rubrics included in this download. I would sometimes grade on completion, sometimes focus on a specific skill or goal (vocabulary or punctuation), and othertimes skip the grading. (Because I was laughing too hard at the student responses! Those days I called it a community building.)
Give these a try with your second, third, fourth, fifth, or sixth grade classroom or homeschool students. You're sure to bring some fun into the day!
Thanks for looking!
