★★★Teach students how to use imagery to start their writing with impact using this FREE prompt cards pack.★★★
Writing an interesting start to a text which instantly gains the reader’s attention is a hard skill for students and even adults to master. This FREEBIE explicitly teaches students how to ‘hook’ their reader using imagery/paint a picture.
This pack compliments other writing skills taught in class and is a great, no prep required solution
for writing prompts. Students will use the prompt cards to begin their text however, they can be encouraged to practise using the other writing skills they have been taught as they continue writing the rest of their text.
What Is Included In This Pack:
★ A lesson aid page
which gives an explanation of the imagery/paint a picture hook, how to use it and examples of it being used.
★ 12 writing hook stimulus/ prompt cards
that students will use as the first sentence in their text to practise starting with a writing hook. They will then continue writing the rest of the text using their own ideas and planning.
