16 mb of ram for this set
All copyright laws apply to these pictures. Thank you!
All pics taken carefully with safety for me and anything, anyone, any animal. with care for any animals as well.
I don't have conversation starters for ELL but they can be used for ELL, French, Spanish easily.
This is set 1. I am putting together as many sets of 10 as I can. This cuts down on the MB of memory.
I want to communicate with my students, simple. I don't want to just babble but really focus my communication.
Pictures are one way to do it. How hard is it to find pics? They are either too small or the site has watermarks on them - unusable. Also I get nervous with copyright issues. I had purchased a set of pics (99) from a teacher catalog, but so many were not appropriate I created my own set to share.
These are pictures I took myself over a few years. I use them for conversation builders every day. No animals or people were hurt in any way taking these pictures.
Here is a list:
running horses on a farm, modern sculpture, Baltimore, tourists on a ferry, pizza meal, mother horse and new colt on a farm, man on celllphone on his speed boat, mouse in a chocolate bar wrapper (found the mouse before I moved) dog running with frisbee, clients eating Irish pub with music, night game stadium,how I use the pictures, French conversation starters, Spanish conversation starters
You can pass these out (takes ink though!) show them from your computer to an Elmo device, print them in BW, use them however you wish.
But for me, I have found that modeling over and over, and USING the language is the ABSOLUTE key for me to really using communication skills.
Enjoy these pics!
I have more I will be putting together.
