This is a great idea. I had used something similar years ago but have not in the past few years. We have been talking a lot about writing ideas and how to better implement them in our trainings this week. This idea came at the right time. Thank you.

Thank you so much for this great blog. I also love the idea Michael threw out of military uniforms to prompt writing. This will really improve student learning by offering an authentic experience. I believe that I will participate along with my students. For the younger grades, having a word bank displayed will help writer's with variety.

I have used military uniforms as a "Prompt" for a couple of years. I always get some great writing from my 7th graders. This year I also plan on bringing in some violins, some old and beat up, others new, as a prompt for some poetry.
