PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Engaging story starters paired with compelling photographs: these are not your ordinary writing prompts!

Each of the 10 photographs, chosen for the month of December, (with themes of Christmas, North Pole happenings, holiday cookies, presents, snow, and hibernation, 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.

All of the story starters come in three different 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!
