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.
This is a fantastic resource! I've used it very successfully with all abilities. Its particularly good for lower children to help them generate ideas for any kind of writing, but is also excellent for use with independent assessment writing. Children can root through the ideas given, picking one that appeals to them and the writing that follows is fantastic - regardless of ability level. A must have for any classroom of any age.
These resources are brilliant as prompts for writing in our big write/ target writing sessions. There is a great variety for us to cover different areas each week. This will be a resource I will use again and again. Thank you!
I recently used one of your setting pictures with a Primary 1 class to stimulate their story writing on Under the Sea. It helped the children build up a story and their writing was fantastic, will use this resource again and again!! Thank you!!
I can't believe how much good stuff is in this pack. I can't wait to set up my creative writing pinboard now, and this resource has enough in it to last at least a whole year. I particularly like the Surprising Situations pictures, as I've used these sorts of images very successfully in the past but had to trawl the internet for them.
I've used a lot of the resources in this pack and the children have absolutely loved it, especially the opening sentences. Their favourite activity was trying to make ghost stories out of the funnier openers. Surprising situations was also a favourite. I've mixed and matched some of the resources too, one session they were given a surprising situation, story title and story opener and had to write a short story using all three. It's a great resource, thanks.
I have been using Teaching packs for two months now and absolute life saving packs they are. My year 3 class are challenging themselves from this fantastic resource, their vocabulary has taken leaps and bound
Thank you tons for saving me time and giving my classroom such pleasure!!!
Thanks for all your hard work and inspiration for me as a teacher when planning my literacy.
