I know what it’s like to watch a student stare at a piece of blank paper. And sit. And stare.
It’s painful for the student, and it’s painful for me, the teacher.
What if I told you I had a secret to help your student get a pencil moving?
That’s exactly what your student gets to do with these interactive monster writing prompts for kids.
He will complete the monster drawing prompts and then use his doodle for writing ideas.
What’s Included in the Draw to Write: Monster Writing Prompts
The printable file includes nine different Doodle Monster drawing prompt pages.
The writing prompt pages include various monster parts–bodies, eyes, horns, accessories, wings, feet, tails, mouths, etc.
The pages will prompt your student to finish the drawings.
The file also contains these eight prompts to help your student write about the doodle monsters:
- Your doodle monsters are going to the zoo. What will they do there? Use details.
- Your doodle monsters are going to a restaurant. Write about the menu items they order. Use details.
- Your doodle monsters are going trick-or-treating. What will they find in their bags? Use details.
- Your doodle monsters are going to make a jack-o-lantern. Describe their design. Use details.
- Each one of your doodle monsters has a special ability. Name your monsters and describe their abilities. Use details.
- Your doodle monsters are going to live with you. Write a How to Care for Monsters Guide. Use details.
- Choose one of your doodle monsters to go into a haunted house. What does he see, hear, and smell? Use details.
- Your doodle monsters are going to the perfume shop. What scents will they choose? Use details.
As you will note, a key phrase in the prompts is “Use details.” Using details will help your student create silly, fun, and interesting writing.
