[writing picture prompt pages]

Sometimes when my littles are stuck for a writing idea, or need a break from the day-to-day super structured common core writing, or when I have a sub, I break out the writing pages that have a picture prompt and let them just go to town writing a story.  Spelling can be temporary.  The story can be fact or fiction.  It's just a really fun way to let them explore their own writing world.  In fact, some of their best to publish ideas come as a spin-off of these picture prompt pages.

Missing 3 days of school this week, my class has had 3 different picture prompt pages, 2 that I can share, and 1 that I can't because of copyright restrictions.  The PDF files have one full sheet of writing lines to run on the backside of the picture prompt, leaving room for a title, the author's name, and plenty of writing space.

The first features the super cute Mr. Smarty Pants from Mr. Bubblegum.
I can't wait to read what they come up with for this one!
The other features part of the Charlotte's Web set from MelonHeadz.
Both images are linked.

If you think your class would enjoy working with these pages, please take them, leave a little thank you, and let me know how they turn out.

Off to snuggle my little miss some more.
This cough is just rattling in her chest and she hurts so bad.
I love the time we get to spend together.
I just wish she felt better!
