After a few months away from school, writing an essay (or even a sentence) may seem daunting. But when writing prompts feature full-color images, students have a visual focus that promote creative thoughts. This collection of 31 prompts for August are projectable on any smart board or light surface. Each comes with a prompt for opinion/argument, informative/explanation or narrative writing. Some of the examples are coordinated with national (or weird) holidays. Others are thought-provoking or lighthearted. All will elicit creative thoughts that lead to better writing. A set of Common Core aligned writing sheets accompanies this product.
