Photo Stories provide a variety of writing practice for students at all levels.
- Do you want to provide students with a variety of writing opportunities, but don’t know where to find engaging resources?
- Do some of your students have a hard time writing from a photograph or illustration, while others breeze through it almost effortlessly or without imagination?
- Do all of your students seem to have different “gaps” in their writing?
I created this resource because all of these things were true for my students, and I thought other teachers were probably experiencing the same frustrations!
Students write a story from the full-size photo provided.
Students use the photo with the Word Bank card to help guide their thinking and writing.
Students use the photo with the Hints card to help them include important details in their writing.
Students think of two appropriate titles for the photo. (This encourages students to find the main idea of a photo and to make inferences.)
Students choose one of the small photo cards to write about. (The teacher may choose to include one of the Word Bank, Hints, Story Starter, or Title It card on the back of each photo card.)
Students use full-page photo cards with the “Making Inferences” sheet to think about what they see and what they can logically infer from each photo.
Mix and match cards as you see fit for your students!
