One of my favorite ideas for writing journals is to use picture prompts. Simply find an interesting picture and ask students to describe what is happening. They could make up a story or tell how a person in the picture might be feeling. The possibilities are limitless. On Pinterest, I have a growing collection of pictures that I think would be great to use for writing prompts.
Here is my Picture Writing Prompts board.
