60 PHOTO PROMPTS for CREATIVE WRITING!
5 High-Interest Categories
Pick a Photo Prompt is a great solution for your reluctant writers! Pick a Photo Prompt is a unique collection of 60 full-color photographs to motivate students to think and write. The photographs are divided into five categories, so there’s something to stir the imagination of all your students. The photos are in the public domain, so feel free to use them without copyright worries.
Each of the five categories has twelve awesome photographs– just enough so the choice isn’t overwhelming for your students. The writing categories include the following:
• Science Fiction
An added bonus is a Word Box that accompanies each photograph with words associated with the photo that students can incorporate into their stories. They also serve as vocabulary boosters.
A Student’s Checklist for Writing and a Teacher’s Grading Rubric for Writing are also included in this unit as well as Guidelines for Good Writing.
The photos look awesome in full color but also reproduce great in grayscale. Laminate the photo prompts for added durability before posting them on a bulletin board or at a learning center.
