This 50+ writing prompt bundle will last you all year.
The Mentor Texts Writing Prompts Series is a collection of writing prompts to be used alongside various picture books. Students will practice responding to reading by writing to sources. This bundle includes 56 writing prompts designed to give students the opportunity to read a familiar mentor text, analyze a writing prompt, find text evidence, draft, revise/edit, and finally publish.
There are three types of prompts:
1. Prompts that require students to write about one picture book (like the one included in this sample).
2. Prompts that require students to write about two similar picture books, drawing on information from both books.
3. Prompts that require students to draw on information from one picture book plus an outside source (that students must find themselves). I included some prompts like these to incorporate research writing standards.
