Sometimes it can be a challenge getting students excited about reading and writing about informational text. I’ve found success by incorporating motivating pictures or other images that build reading and writing stamina. With this bundle, you mix and and match any of the 90 pictures/images to the interest of your students. 50 corresponding pages of informational text are included for your students to practice close reading strategies with. You can also use the pictures for practice with description, inference, compare & contrast and developing an opinion. Photos included are by PICTURES TO PROVE IT.

DAILY IMAGE WRITING PROMPTS
Project a slide of 4 images and ask students to pick one to free write about. It's a really fun way to get students warmed up to a writing lesson. I've included a page with prompts and a page with sentence frames for students that need the extra support. You can alway go back to the beginning and ask students to choose an image they haven't before. 40 Picture/images in total.
