I would use these writing prompts to have students practice expository writing. I would write at the top of the sheet "Write to explain..." and let the students choose their writing prompt.

I think I will take some of these writing prompts and print them on labels for my students to keep in their writing folder.  When we have "free write" time, the students that are stumped can just pick one out and stick it in their spiral.
