⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Jessica A. says... "I have been using journaling/writing prompts with my students forever. This one not only is creative and engaging but especially seems accessible to those students who are less confident about their writing skills, or just flat out didn't like to write. By one week's time, the kids began to have fun with this resource and were asking for more time to write. I call that a win!"

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Riley B. says, "These work perfectly for distance learning. Much more engaging than "text only" prompts, but still allows brief, focused daily practice and helps build (or re-build) student's perspective-taking/imagination skills. "

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Courtney Cotter says "This was exactly what I needed! I use this resource in lots of different settings. I use it during Journals when students having writer's block, in Literacy Centres, and with older students for Extreme Writing prompts. "
