Give your students a chance to express their creativity while practicing their writing skills! Use these Finish the Picture Writing Prompts as a free-write activity, morning work, for fast finishers, in a writing center, or leave for a sub. Students use the simple picture given to create their own picture then turn the page over and write a story about their illustration! Instructions have been intentionally left off of each page to allow you to provide more direction to your students. You could have them turn the picture into their favorite animal and then write an opinion piece on the back about why they chose that animal. Or, they could turn the picture into a portrait of a family member and write a narrative about a time they spent with that relative. You could even leave it open-ended and allow your students to create and write about whatever they want to assess their creative writing abilities. The options are endless!
This packet includes four different types of lined pages and 40 Finish the Picture pages - enough to use one per week for the entire year!
