    Would this work?

    I have taught Kinder for 3 years, and I tried this once. I think it would work for almost any grade.

    I went through magazines (National Geographic, mostly), and cut out different scenes of people doing things, people with different expressions, people in different settings. Then I pasted them to cards and laminated them. I put them in a box and when the children were stuck for an idea of what to write about they would go to the idea box.

    I realize this is more "creative" writing not on a certain topic, but would it serve your purpose? An alternative to using a box is to copy the picture to use on an overhead projector so everyone writes with the same prompt (if this is your goal).

    Hope this helps!
