This set of pictures can be use to create stories with CI. Story telling can be fun when you include actors, and some students have a hard time personalizing someone or something silly. At the beginner level, it helps to give them a prompt to start, like a famous person. They can become that person and then let their imagination flow. Have two or three student pick the characters for the day, then start PQA, circle among the class and see how the story gets create it. An alternative option, tell students to work in groups of two or three, choose the characters and then write the story, this is a good alternative for the free writing time.
I print them in color, and laminated them to have then ready every time.
