Description

Engaging story starters paired with compelling photographs: these are not your ordinary writing prompts! Includes Digital Version (using Google Slides) and Printable Version. Perfect for distance learning!

Each of the 10 photographs, chosen for the months of August & September (with themes of summer and back-to-school, among others), includes three carefully crafted story starters, plus one set of open-ended prompting questions, for a total of 40 prompts.

The story starters engage students in several types of writing, the majority being narrative (both first-person and third-person points-of-view), but also include persuasive, opinion, description, compare-contrast, instructions, and more.

DIGITAL

The digital version comes as 10 separate Google Slides files, once for each photo. (**You will get a PDF within the zip with clickable links that allow you to access the Google Slides.**) Each Slides file contains 8 slides: Student Directions, four Prompt slides, a Planning slide, and two Writing slides where students type their story.

PRINTABLE

All of the story starters come in three different printable formats: a "task card" format that lends itself to a writing center or workstation use; a "separate strips" format, where each strip includes a unique story starter and the accompanying photo, allowing the option to glue into a notebook or journal; and a "no prep" format, allowing you to print and go. Writing paper for each photo is included in two line-spacing options.

Check out the preview for a closer look at some of the photos and their story starters!
