I love this website.great prompts for journals. There is a new prompt each day (some for older students). Very interesting topics --Sure this can be adapted for visual journals or an art-based self-portrait
First, let every student make a fingerprint onto white paper. Next, blow up their fingerprints using the photocopier or larger). Then, Have your kids write words and phrases about themselves along the lines and whorls of their fingerprints :) Cool idea
Incorporate art into writing (poetry): Students can even pick a page from their favourite book as an inspiration. Book page poetry is really neat and a great way to show creativity with older kids. This is an interesting way to teach poetry.
Title: Our Teacher is Missing Writing Idea Grade Level: - This writing prompt printable is great to leave when a teacher will not be present in the class for the day. Great way to keep the students on task for the substitute teacher.
