Here is a fun and engaging way to make your students great authors. Encourage them to create their own narrative by using visual prompts and an associated vocabulary. Students choose a range of images from a given set and can then select from the words provided that have been divided into nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs. In this way, the learning of both grammar and vocabulary has been placed in context as students attempt to generate their own story. The pictures are fun and irreverent at times and link to their own experience. The back to school images raise notions of behavior, learning and discipline.
