These (40) picture cards are great story starters for students of all ages and abilities. Print out the color cards, laminate, and you are ready to go! The students can pick a card and write a story about what they see.
Another great idea: use these cards to help students increase their inference skills. What is happening in the picture? Why? What is going to happen next?
I use these cards with my special education students to increase their writing, inference skills, and awareness of the world around them. I hope you can see the growth that I have seen.
