Picture Story Prompts | Color and Write


Wanting some inspirational pages to spark reluctant writers to write? Looking for engaging, picture writing prompts to help all your students get creative? Here are 11 picture story prompts with several fun (warm weather) outdoor scenes. As students color each picture, they can begin thinking about a story to write!

Each page contains an illustration and space to begin writing. If students need extra space to continue their story, just have them finish on the back or attach another piece of paper.
