From poetry to fictional narratives these snow day creative writing
picture prompts will help students channel an end product that can be a class display or a published class book to send home with students as a keepsake lesson. With 31 photo masters each student can have a unique story picture prompt or display a color prompt digitally and then have all students write from it. Most photos have a color and black master picture prompt. Try the 17 syllable Haiku poetry style of 5-7-5 syllables in three lines with the first and third lines rhyming for a statement with nature and this snow day prompt. Use in guided reading to teach inferring or main idea and spend the time writing from picture prompt.
Photo backdrops are from Park City, Utah on a ski outing. I have freshened the photos on this file and it turned out very nice. Make January the month for this project each year and build your file for a monthly picture prompt assignment from my other picture prompts such as my February's flag picture prompt assignment. You will use them every year and students will become familiar with this creative writing assignment strategy.
