Picture Prompt Writing

Pictures are a perfect writing prompt. Here are a few of my favorite "pictures."

1. Artwork ( I loved using Van Gogh and Picasso with my upper kids for fantasy writing). We would make a list of descriptive words and then the student would write and share their stories.

2. Children's books: A few of my favorites are Chris Van Allsburg and David Wiesner. I love choosing one unique picture and having a class discussion about possible story ideas.

3. Cartoon pictures without the words. Even the lower grades can come up with some funny messages for those conversation bubbles!

Happy Writing!
