Get your students excited about writing with these engaging picture prompts! These prompts have a picture supported vocabulary word bank to support emergent writers. Each prompt comes in three differentiated versions: drawing only, traceable sentence stem, and writing.  The options make differentiation for literacy writing centers a breeze all year long!


Included in the bundle:

  • 40 total picture prompts- 10 each for Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer
  • 3 differentiated versions of each prompt

Each page has a very basic picture and picture supported vocabulary word bank to assist students with spelling and brainstorming.  The provided picture is simple so that students can use their creativity to add to the picture while they complete their writing.

Students can use these printables for different types: narrative, informative, and opinion writing.  The drawing only version includes talking points to help students explain their drawing. The sentence stem and writing versions include a self-check at the bottom of the page.  Students will self-edit for spacing, capital letters, and punctuation.

These writing picture prompts are the perfect addition to literacy centers, whole class or small group writing, homework, or to leave as an engaging activity with a substitute!

    I found this resource when I was searching for items to help my deaf students with their writing. I loved this because not only was it free, but it had pictures with the word bank which made it easy for my students to pick the word(s) they wanted to use! I have not used all of it yet, but my students felt very comfortable, and successful, with the part they have already used. Can’t wait to use the other items I purchased!

    This resources is awesome for me to use with my students. This resource contains visual aids as well.

  3. Hannelie Bergmann (verified owner)

    A really great resource especially for my little kiddos and reluctant writers who need the picture prompts.

  4. Katiw Porter (verified owner)

    This has been an awesome resource during my morning choices time where the students can pick a prompt and are able to write with limited support to the differentiation this provides.

  5. JENNIFER FENNERL (verified owner)

    These prompt pages give just enough structure for my first grade bunch while allowing them to write their own sentences. It’s helpful for them to learn to use a word bank as well.

    Excellent resource! I can’t say enough about it! I am currently teaching Reading to K-5th grade. With the two year COVID crisis, our kids have fallen behind. This writing resource has been a great help to my students.
