Writing Prompt Printable Inspired by "Take Your Dog to Work" Day!

I'm a little late getting this posted....Trust me, I was getting it all ready in time, but, one thing leads to another around here, and I ended up working in the yard all day yesterday and spent day on the lake today--and broken down in the boat!!! Experiences!! Next I know, it's Saturday night! 
Anyway, Friday, June 22, 2012, was designated as "Take Your Dog to Work Day!" How cool is that? I guess not very if you don't have dogs or if you are not an animal person, but I am! That's actually the understatement of the century. I have too many pets! Yes, I could tell dog tales and cat tales all day long. 
How about getting your kiddos to write a cat tale or dog tale? Or, any other animal tale for that matter always makes for a good impromptu writing assignment! The designated day inspired me to create a quick printable that can be used whenever! 
illustrate main event innovative connections Tells n' Tails n' Tales: "The Time My ______ and I....."  AND Let them do the rest. I included a little section for them to illustrate the main event of the "tale" they are "telling"--- :) Here's a free printable to download if you'd like it!
And, why not go ahead and have a quick "homophone" mini-lesson?
                              What's your favorite writing prompt you've ever assigned????


  1. What a cute idea! I talk about my pup too much in class, the kid are always begging me to bring her in!


    1. Great idea for "Show n' Tell" huh? :) My students end up learning all my dogs' names and my cat---at least before Christmas! I talk too much about mine!!!!! They know I'm a die hard animal person!
      Thanks for writing...
