This PowerPoint presentation is a collection of 20 animated writing prompts for language arts students, grades 5-9. These high-interest prompts will provide spontaneous practice for kids to sharpen their writing skills as they describe, explain, persuade, and narrate.

Bonus: Any or all of the 21 high-quality animations included in this package may be used in your own PowerPoint presentations. Just choose the ones you want to use and place them anywhere you wish!

Rather than a simple listing of prompts, Journal Jumpstarts is a complete presentation designed to intrigue and to motivate students to exercise their writing skills--and in the process, to get that much-needed practice.

Each slide is titled and contains...

• a writing prompt.

• a looping, presentation-wide animation along the left side of the slide.

• a unique, featured, looping animation, selected to "illustrate" the prompt itself.

• a link back to the Table of Contents.

These Journal Jumpstarts encourage students to...

• explore their own thinking, preferences, and attitudes.

• make suppositions about how they would react in hypothetical situations.

• think about and analyze events in the past and the present.

• make predictions about events in the future.

In short, Journal Jumpstarts, Volume 1, provides an intriguing visual way to engage student interest and to invite them to embark upon a journey of self discovery, while honing their writing skills in the process.

Compatible with all versions of PowerPoint.
