Tired of hearing your students say they don't know what to write about? These quick write visual writing prompts are going to make your teacher heart happy! The high-interest images and variety of prompts will have your students begging for more time to write! Yes, really!

The purpose of these writing prompts is to get students’ imagination flowing! The goal is to build writing fluency and creativity, so students get used to writing right away without worrying about whether their grammar is correct, completing the piece, or even if they love their ideas.

Every 2 – 4 weeks, I recommend having students create one published piece based on one of their recent quick writes. They can pick a favorite to expand on or even combine ideas/characters/settings. Giving students this choice creates buy-in and allows them to select from their best ideas and discard the lesser ones. The variety in their selections also makes it much more enjoyable for you to read their final drafts!

How amazing would it feel to know you have enough writing prompts to get through every single day of the school year, and then some?!

With this bundle you have an easy, enjoyable and effective set of bell-ringers, writing centers, or early finishers go-to option!

What is included in the resource:

  • Teacher Tips page
  • 210 Visual Writing prompts in PowerPoint (.PPTX) and in Google Slides™ versions over a variety of genres, topics, and skills
  • Both versions are editable, so you can easily tweak the prompts at will!
  • Note: These prompts are meant to be presented or viewed on 1:1 student devices. Due to the presentation size (16:9) and colorful backgrounds, printing the slides is not practical.

Please feel free to reach out via Q&A if you have any questions.
