If you ever hear your students say, "I don't know what to write about today," this resource can help them generate possible topics. I present this as a minilesson during writing workshop and then give the students a copy to keep in their writing notebooks "in case of a writing emergency." If you have enough wall space in your classroom, you may even want to enlarge this document to poster-size and display it for the children to see when writing.
* The updated document includes separate sheets of each image so you can focus on just a few at a time, post them on a bulletin board, and/or have copies large enough for the students to see during a whole-group lesson.
Great literature and personal artifacts from home are other ways to help children generate writing ideas, but this kid-friendly "Hot Topics" sheet will provide a little extra help when needed.
Thank you for your interest in this item.
Happy teaching! :)
