Product Description
Create fun, interactive and student led writing centers this year! Students look at the picture and create a story based on the illustration. This activity helps inspire young writers and provide a springboard or starter for them.

This is a part of my January Writing Activities and Centers Bundle

Purpose:
In lower elementary, children often have to use the illustrations of a text to help them better understand, figure out tricky words, or make an inference. This activity builds upon that notion, as it asks them to look at a picture and write a story about it. Students have 18 different pictures to work with this month!

Set-up:
Print copies of the "Create a Story" and have them in an easily accessible fashion. Consider using a binder with plastic sheet protectors, or a paper stacking tray. This will allow students to look through their options and easily pick the paper they want to work on.

Execution:
Students look at the picture and create a story based on the picture.

January Pictures Include:
*A snowbear
*Two snowmen side by side
*Snowmen on a sled
*A snowball fight
*A child snowboarding
