This print & go writing center will keep your students engaged during the month of March! These writing prompts were designed for fun writing and an opportunity for you to share special March holidays with your students! Students will choose three of the five picture words to help them write about the prompt given. Though the prompts included were written to be able to correlate with a particular day within the month, most could be used at other times. There are 19 prompts included in the lined paper version as shown on the cover and also with handwriting lines. There is also an extra lined page in each version in case you want to copy on back of pages to encourage longer writing responses.
