Journal Prompts Galore: Story Starters

Are you looking for a quick writing assignment for students?  Would you like to give them practice with different forms of creative writing?  I found a website with some valuable resources for you!

Bic's Story Starters offer some excellent writing and journal prompts for students.  Borrow some ideas directly from the site, or print the prompts as cards.  This is helpful because you can assign everyone the same prompt, or pass out individual cards for each student.   

The downloadable Story Starters give students practice writing for different purposes, such as entertainment.  

These are great for substitute plans as well.  Keep a few of them ready for emergency lesson plans.  

Substitutes, you can also record a few a use them for when you need a few activities.  Just pass out the prompt cards or write one on the board, and students and respond in their journals.  You all know I'm a fan of journal writing!

The great thing about these is that they are FREE and look a lot like some expensive products I've seen on the market.  Yay, Bic!
