Product Description
★ Teaching students to use high-quality sensory imagery and figurative language in their creative writing is of utmost importance.
★ "Show Me" drills facilitate quick "at bats" in which students practice incorporating figurative language and sensory imagery into their creative and narrative writing.

This Resource Contains:
• 50 full-sized photographs for projecting onto the whiteboard in class
• 15 landscapes
• 11 animal pictures
• 16 portraits
• 8 natural disasters

How To Use
★ Create a system in which students do 5-10 minute "Show Me" drills in their notebooks at the beginning of each creative writing class.
★ Encourage students to "show not tell" by describing the snapshot in front of them using all the creative tools they have at their disposal.
★ Share students' most powerful paragraphs or sentences with the class and facilitate class discussion about what makes their writing vivid and powerful.
★ Revise past "Show Me" prompts later in the year once students have developed their creative writing skills.
★ If done daily, this resource will last for 10 weeks of the school year.

Other Uses
★ The portrait series can be used to practice describing emotions playing across character's faces without using emotion words such as "angry," "sad," or "elated." (For example, a prompt could be "Show Me this picture. Do not use the words sad, disappointed, angry, upset, depressed, or mad in your response.")
★ The landscape series can be used to practice describing the setting of a story.
★ The natural disaster series can be used to practice person vs. nature conflicts in narrative writing and/or describing fast-paced action within a scene.

If you'd prefer to have students work on pre-made worksheets rather than in notebooks, consider buying Visual Show Me Prompts for Creative Writing - Worksheets instead. That resource contains the same images, but embedded in a printable worksheet format.
