I cut pictures out of National Geographic and other magazines. You could laminate them, and then they're done forever.

If you have microsoft word (which I assume most people have) just go to their clipart online site (by clicking on "import clips online) in their word program and search under the heading of pictures. There are tons of fabulous real pictures of things like thunder storms or nature that work particularly well if you're working on setting. You can also find pictures of babies or other people for character and then you can use pictures of things like ice cream or pies for work on descriptive words. I've never been disappointed. I also mount the pictures on construction paper and laminate them to make things more durable.

I have used old calendars too especially the ones with landscapes. I laminate them and keep them on a ring.

My children take a state test in March in which they have to use the picture as a spring board to write a story (they are not allowed to describe the picture). So, thank you for all the wonderful ideas.

I suggest you check out Chris Van Allsburg's book titled The Mysteries of Harris Burdick. They are a book of provocative pictures that are story-starters. They are not pictures to be described, but pictures intended to spark their creativity. This is a really great book.

I purchased a CD called "Lightning in a Bottle" at a six traits workshop. There are 266 pictures with writing practice prompts for every grade level. You print them out on transparencies. The CD is by Gretchen Bernabei.

That sounds like a good CD. What grades is it for? I teach 3rd grade.

photos for writing prompts

i have a great website....only it has been taken over by an evil domain name group....

but i was able to find the website by using archive.org (handy little tool--did you all know that you can go back to see all the stages a website has gone through?)

anyway...there are about 100 photos on this website--although not all archived well, so some of them don't come up--scroll down to the numbers

Did you ever use the questioning strategies using picture prompts initially and then moving to developing questions about text (including expository) by Dr. Hochman? Using current event pictures can really build background knowledge for young kids before they can actually decode articles about expository topics.

Does anyone know where I could find fiction-like writing prompts? For non-fiction writing prompts, I just use Flickr and Google to find images. Then, I search by topic: zoo animals, birthday, school, etc.
