Need a writing idea? Just look around you!
When I visit classrooms and talk to kids about their writing,
I always tell them, "Look around you. No one sees the world just like you do!"
Encourage children to think of as many different writing topics as possible. Below is a reproducible that they can use to record their thoughts and ideas. Have students put the lists of ideas in their writing folders or notebooks to have access to ideas whenever they run dry, like the poor chap in the cartoon above!
