Picture Writing Prompts for Whiteboard
Jazz up your writing curriculum with these engaging visual writing prompts in Power Point format. Your students' creativity will blossom as they write in response to a different comical or puzzling picture each day. These prompts are great for idea development and provide a painless way for your class to practice the writing skills you've taught. The colorful slides are designed for display on a whiteboard or television wired to a computer. I have one of these prompts on the screen each morning while my students are arriving. They write their responses in composition books while I'm doing attendance and lunch count.
Four different sets of prompts are available. Each set includes at least 60 writing prompt slides, with a minimum of twelve prompts in each of the five Power Points listed below.
Monday - Dialogue Drama
Tuesday - Explain This
Wednesday - Personal Prompt (written prompt in ppt format)
Thursday - Quotation Quips
Friday - Super Sentence Challenge
My free download includes three samples of each type of prompt.
Organizational tip: It's convenient to have your writing prompts handy for daily use, so make a new folder on your computer's desktop and name it Picture Writing Prompts. Save your Picture Writing Prompt Power Points to this folder when you download them.
I've been using these prompts since creating them three years ago, and I've never seen kids so eager to write. My students also love to read their prompt responses aloud to their classmates, which boosts their self-confidence and improves their reading fluency. I hope your students enjoy these writing prompts as much as mine have!
