I created, “Tell Me a Story- Picture Prompts” as a way for students to work on their picture comprehension skills. Picture comprehension skills are an important component of reading comprehension development, as it helps students develop observational skills and gain a deeper understanding of the content being presented. When a student can write about a picture, it shows that not only can the student tell what they are observing, but that they also understand the picture and can expand on the situation being presented.
“Tell Me a Story- Picture Prompts” were designed for grades K-2. Kindergarteners will enjoy coloring the pictures and practicing beginning writing skills, such as labeling and writing lists. As students progress through the year, they can begin writing simple sentences about the picture. First graders may begin the school year writing simple sentences and move towards writing a story about the picture by the end of the year. Second graders will work on writing simple stories at the beginning of the year, adding more details as the year progresses.
“Tell Me a Story- Picture Prompts” can be used during whole group or small group writing instruction, they can be added to a work on writing literacy center, they make great morning work, or an activity for early finishers. You could also add some to your emergency sub folder.
