50 Month-by-Month Draw & Write Prompts
This resource helps beginning writers to practice their skills with these engaging reproducible pages. The drawing prompt on each page encourages students to mull the topic over and get comfortable with it before answering the writing prompts below the drawing space. Many of the writing prompts are given in a finish-the-sentence style, and the variety of prompts help beginning writers to gain familiarity with different types of writing, including interviews, stories, descriptions, letters, and step-by-step instructions. Many of the pages also include a “word bank” that students can draw from for ideas or spelling help. The pages are grouped by month and follow various themes, such as holidays, seasons, special days, classroom community, and animals. The 50+ activities are not only great for writing practice but also for reinforcing seasonal topics studied throughout the year. The pages are reproducible for classroom or homeschool use. 64 pgs. ~Rachel E.

Each reproducible pairs a drawing prompt with quick writing prompts on favorite topics: autumn harvest, animals, 100th day, holidays, weather, classroom community, and more. As a pre-writing warm-up, drawing pictures sparks kids' interest, helps them generate ideas and details for writing, and makes their subjects lively and real. A great way to encourage reluctant writers!
