This product is jam-packed with 50 seasonal and everyday writing prompts your students will LOVE! Get creative with 23 image headers to decorate student work and create beautiful bulletin board displays!


Note: You don’t need to print these sheets to use the writing prompts. Simply have students write their responses in a notebook or on blank paper for additional writing practice. Also, there is not an image header for every prompt provided in this package, however, I have created a blank template so students can design their own headers. You can find the blank header on page 12.


Thank you for your purchase!
