Keep your students interested in writing this May with picture prompts! Picture prompts have been known to inspire and engage students. They also help eliminate issues with students who do not like to draw or have trouble coming up with original ideas for writing.
The fantastic thing about this resource is it can be used in a variety of ways – find what works for you and your students. A few suggestions are given below.
: Choose your picture prompts ahead of time and print out the necessary pages for your students to use throughout the month.
: Print a variety of prompts for students to self-select their writing paper.
Use the Special Holidays
: There is a specific section at the end of the pack that coordinates with special holidays for the month. Use those on the indicated day (bottom left-hand corner) and let students self-select the rest of the month.
: If your school follows a specific writing plan, train your students on how to use this resource and utilize it as an early finisher activity.
I suggest you copy every page with two sides – the picture prompt on the front side and a full line page on the back. The blank writing paper is found after the journal cover. You can choose to print your picture prompts with wide ruled paper or with handwriting lines.
