These writing bell ringers/ warm up writing prompts are great to get the creative juices flowing in your classroom. Included are 40 slides, each slide contains 10 random words and a picture associated with one of the words to help your students start thinking. Students are asked to choose 5 of the 10 words and create a short story. Students can choose any of the words. (I usually ask students to circle the words they used in their writing.)
Students really like to get creative with their stories and it is always entertaining to hear the direction they went with their story. I always have volunteers to read these stories.
These will also work well for a writing station/center.
