Just got an email from The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) that had a link to their monthly art contest based on a prompt.  September’s “Draw This” prompt was “I’m Scared” and as I scrolled through all the amazing entries, I thought that our students may absolutely love to be able to select one of these images as a springboard for narrative or essay writing.  The artwork is so diverse and inspiring.  My favorite was Katia Wish’s art and I’ve already started trying to write a story about it!

October’s prompt is “Girl Power.”  Happy viewing and writing!
