This pack has 18 pages of picture prompts to be used to spice up journal writing. Each page contains a photograph and journal prompt for independent writing. The photographs grab students' attention and the prompts represent a variety of writing purposes.
My students have gone from dreading journals to loving journal writing. In my classroom, I number each picture prompt. When students choose a prompt, they put the number with the title of their journal entry. This helps them remember what they've already written about and/or you can rotate the prompts among the class.
These prompts could be used at a writing center, as a homework assignment, during whole group writing time, or as a morning warm up. The whole class could have the same promt or you could allow some student choice.
