After repeated readings of a book, the students will be ready to do some simple writing activities drawing on the background they've acquired by listening to and reading the picture book.
Each writing prompt is on a 2 page document with an illustration area at the bottom of the second page. The activity could also be used in a literacy center or for a substitute!
Have fun reading and writing!
