Product Description
Inspired by, the ever so popular, Instagram application for smart devices, I created this "Story Snapshot".

This worksheet can be used in a variety of ways.

I have used this for my students to develop the main idea of a story, creating their own usernames (next to the circle above the blank box), drawing a picture they would have taken and posted about the story, create a brief caption (as these applications allow for a limited number of characters to be used), and create a number of "hashtags" that relate to the story or topic.

For example, my third grade students recently read "Chester Greenwood and His Cold Ears", a story about the inventor of the earmuffs. The students drew a picture of earmuffs or a person wearing earmuffs, wrote captions along the lines of "Chester Greenwood invented earmuffs!" and hashtags including: #nowmyearsaren'tcold #inventor #innovative #design #problemsolved #loveit.

I've never seen my students more engaged with a "main idea" lesson! They had a blast!

You could have students create a "selfie" image of one of their characters in a story they are reading. In the image they would have to include details about the setting, a caption about how the character is doing or feeling, and relevant hashtags.

This activity is the perfect independent learning activity and addition to any Literacy Center!
