Teaching Packs have such a wide range of wonderful, high-quality resources for teachers! This pack is just one of them! My classroom displays are filled with anchor charts, inspiring images from the Teaching Packs website resources. I am a long-term member of Teaching Packs and always look forward to receiving their updates with new resources. Keep up the great work. We all appreciate it!
This has to be one of my favourite resources to use in the classroom! The pictures of the different objects, characters and settings lends itself to a myriad of uses in the classroom. I often give my class a picture and ask them to write a description in only 100 words, which really gets them focused. Would highly recommend!
This is just one of my "go to" packs. Teaching EAL, I like using the "real" visuals this pack provides.The character, object, setting and surprising situation cards all lend themselves superbly to promoting talk, expanding vocabulary and getting in a bit of grammar. One of the children's favourite games is to pick a character, object and setting and create some fun,interesting sentences.
This pack is filled to the brim with fabulous ideas that will inspire any child to write! The wide range of pictures help even the most reluctant of writers to create a story they can be proud of. It's easy to mix and match the pictures and play around with story ideas until you find the one you're happy with. An absolute must for any classroom!
This is just what I was looking for. Fantastic
Characters, Settings, Objects and situation prompts.
These are amazing. Currently working with excluded students who are reluctant to engage with English due to falling behind and low self-esteem.
Printed and laminated some of these to use as verbal prompts (rational, build the thoughts first then develop writing skills). Now everyone asks to play "The Card Game" daily. Also assisting with developing turn-taking and sharing skills - brill for SEN and SEMH
I have adapted these pictures writing stimulus ideas in my classroom.
I have used the character, object, setting, surprising situation cards from Writing Prompts Pack and combined them with the words from the words of the day from the ‘Wonderful Words’ pack, to develop vocabulary, and turned them into a game. Students choose a card from each section and use them in their writing time to combine to create new and exciting combinations of ideas for paragraphs and/or stories.
I love the wonderfully colored picture prompts that you have included in this packet. They say a picture is worth a thousand words well these pictures get the kids moving and allow them to see details which they can write down and use their imaginations to come up with the story behind the picture. The students love them.
I have had great success with this pack. I especially love the surprising situations story prompts and so do my students. I used it all last year for weekly writing sessions with Stage 1, using a picture to stimulate discussion around when, where, who, what, why, how, which questions. The kids were able to come up with fantastic ideas for writing and by the end of the year were excited to write longer and more interesting stories. I used the pictures for assessment tasks also and was surprised by the variety of ideas that were generated across the class. I'm using this pack again this year.
As a casual relief teacher I love this pack to get kids to start writing. I use this lots in the morning to buy me time to plan the rest of my day.
