Product Description
Train great descriptive writers in no time with our FREE Snapshot Writing Tool. This wonderful, no prep resource works as both a great warm-up or detailed scaffolding tool.


Snapshot Writing is a method of training students to write in sensory detail about a specific moment in time. Just choose any photo or video you want and let them dive in. Your writers will use the first person to describe what they see, hear, feel, smell, and taste, so they can easily get used to creating strong imagery.

This activity will enhance any writing session and build confidence in your students as they learn to overcome their reluctance to write quick and effective descriptions.

This Tool is also included in the Year Long Visual Writing Prompt Bundle

- Over 200 Breathtaking high resolution photos selected to inspire thought and creativity for a variety of writing tasks. (One for every school day of the year)
- 40 weekly Snapshot writing templates to ensure students of any age and ability can respond to the images with direction and purpose.
- Instructions on how to use the visuals and snapshot writing tool in conjunction to get the most out of your students.
- The images are provided as both a PowerPoint presentation to be displayed to a large audience and also as 253 page ebook for personal or small group use.
