24 mb of ram for this set - please be aware
able to get only 9 pictures in this set
I do not have English conversation starters, but these pictures can be used easily to develop language for ELL students.
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.
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:
halloween porch, snowy house/snowy porch/seniors waiting on wharf/seal swimming in aquarium/dog with chew toy/fall tree/passenger taking pic of bridge on trip/father son walking in park/large cat relaxing in window/list of 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. Students can also talk about the pics in groups of two (I do this often)
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.
