These 150 picture writing prompts are meant to be a fun way to engage students in the writing process. You get 150 different picture writing prompts to choose from, each asking one of four prompts:
You also get an EDITABLE PowerPoint file so you can type out your own text. This gives you even more options with the 150 prompts included, meaning you could potentially use them multiple times to focus on different types of writing.
These work great for writing centers, on days where your writing time is cut short (late starts and early releases, anyone?), when students have lost their focus, or when you want to take a break from a bigger writing project. They can also be used in a special education classroom where you want to keep the writing simple and not overwhelming.
In my classroom I used our Interactive Writing Notebooks for students to record their responses. But I have also included three printable options for your needs. The three half sheets are the same, but the line spacing is different. There is also a full size response sheet.
There are not any rubrics included in this download. I would sometimes grade on completion, sometimes focus on a specific skill or goal (vocabulary or punctuation), and othertimes skip the grading. (Because I was laughing too hard at the student responses! Those days I called it a community building.)
Give these a try with your second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, or eighth grade classroom or homeschool students. You're sure to bring some fun into the day!
Thanks for looking!
