This type of printable has really motivated E to start writing down her own ideas and encouraged her to write words whose spelling she isn’t sure of. In addition, I’ve made sure to differentiate it to make it perfect for kids of many different skill levels that are just starting to write. This also makes it a perfect activity for kindergarten literacy centers!

- Pdf file (download below).
- Printer and one or more sheets of paper.

What’s in the Printable PDF File?
The writing prompts consist of an image component and suggested words plus one version that only has the images and no words.
There are four different levels of support provided by the word prompts:
- Lined and dashed font with directional arrows.
- Lined solid font.
- Solid font without lines.
- No words.
In addition, each level comes in two variations: One with the images in color, the other with black and white images for the opportunity to do some coloring for a break from writing.
How to Use the Fall Kids Writing Prompts Printable
With this printable, E chose to trace a few of the words before using them in her writing.
The first sentence she wrote was “The boy loves the red leaves.” She misspelled “loves”, but I was impressed that it wasn’t simply about what’s shown in the picture, but an emotional inference 🙂
Her second sentence was “The girl has a(n) pumpkin.” She didn’t trace the words for this one.
