Getting started when beginning a writing piece is where most of my students struggle. It doesn't seem to matter what grade I teach, they all have the same issue. My eighth graders told me the same thing my first graders tell me now, "I don't have anything to write about." One way to help students get started is through picture writing prompts. A picture can get the student writer thinking...the biggest step.
In that spirit, I have created some picture writing prompts. After the picture writing prompts is a link to a file that has the prompts as you see here, the prompts with no color in the background (to save on the ink cost if you need to print them), writing paper, and suggested use ideas.
