Posted below you will see some of the activities I have in the writing center so that students have some thought provoking and unique writing topics.
These are story titles. Students choose a title and write an appropriate story.
I cut pictures out of magazines. Students write captions for the pictures or a whole story to go along with the picture. I look for a variety of pictures to match my students' interests.
I use interesting notepads and write prompts on them. Some are fiction and some are nonfiction.
