This Writing Journal with Picture Prompts download is a great tool to use with beginning writers. When you feel students are ready to begin some independent writing, give your students this journal and have them use the picture prompt on each page to describe the picture or write about what they think is happening in the picture. Students should also color the pictures and add background details to each picture.
This is a great “morning work” activity that students can do as they enter the classroom each morning. This could also be done during Daily Five, Writing Time, Centers, or any time you feel is appropriate! Having a Word Wall in the classroom that students can use as a reference is a great idea as well. You could also add a checklist to the journal or as a sign around the classroom reminding students what you are looking for in their journals (finger spaces, no white space in pictures, capital letter at beginning of sentence, punctuation, etc.).
I hope you find this product useful!
