First Friday Freebie: A World of Pure Imagination

I love using visual prompts with my writing students. Pictures help to spark their imagination and get the creative juices flowing.

This month’s freebie is a visual prompt I was inspired to create as I saw a rainbow while driving home one day.

In addition to creating my own, I have also found the Write About site to be a wonderful resource for visual writing prompts, especially for free-writing and journaling purposes. There are so many categories to choose from (such as Adventure & Fantasy, Culture, Hobbies & Fun, Places, Seasonal, and Technology) that I can almost always find something that fits my purpose. Prompts can easily be sorted by category and grade, and many offer an added auditory option as well.

I would love to hear about other sources for visual writing prompts. Do you ever have your students create these or take/find their own pictures to write about? That could be a fun part of the creative process too!
