FREE Picture Writing Prompts!

I love using pictures as writing prompts and decided to create a few of my own and join this fun linky party by The Diary of a Not So Wimpy Teacher and Classroom Magic!  Here are a few picture writing prompts I just created using some pictures I had on my phone.

(This is actually a pic of my son Jake and his BFF Brody)

(Our bird Charlie who we gave to a friend )

(This is my daughter 17 year old daughter Bella  who was having character day at her  high school and she decided to dress up like Dora the Explorer.  She stopped by my classroom to visit my kiddos before she went to school.)

(My niece, Samantha, and my son, Jake, a couple of years ago. They were laying on the floor of my mom's loft and were actually trying to listen in on a conversation that was going on downstairs.)

(I didn't write a prompt for this one but I thought you could use it without a prompt...   It is a picture of a grain bug I took when we studied the life cycle of this bug - which I still need to blog about!


  1. I love the fact that you've included your kids! Nicely done.


    1. Thanks Addie! My kids weren't so thrilled I posted those pics but I thought it was funny! :)

  2. I love the idea of using authentic images! I was thinking about doing this earlier. I saw a squirrel on a trashcan eating a donut today! I took the pic because I thought to myself, "this could be a picture prompt!!" Thanks for linking up!!

    1. Thanks for hosting the linky! It has been really fun. I am kinda liking the authentic pictures myself. It may change the way I take pics from now. :)

      Happy Sunday!

  3. I have a file full of pictures cut out and laminated from the newspaper---now to put them to great use. Thanks :)

  4. I can't wait to read about your mealworms project. Thanks for posting on my class blog too! The kids will be so excited on Monday morning!
