Picture Stories

After we finished learning how to write a descriptive paragraph about a picture, I wanted to teach them how to write a story from a picture.

So I whipped up an organizer, found some cool pictures and off we were!

I found an interesting picture that I thought we could get a great story from.

We first started by describing the picture and taking notes like we did for our descriptions.

Then we moved onto deciding characters, if they were good or bad, and some of their character traits.

After that, we tried to come up with a problem and solution based on the picture we were using.

The first one, we did together. I pulled up the picture, and had the kids tell me what to put in the organizer.

We talked about different ways we could like into our stories-what could make it more interesting to 'hook' the reader.

I showed them how to use the organizer we created to help form our story.

They got a new picture to do (and we took notes together) and off they went!

I tried to pick a picture that they could easily relate to a create a story from-making it a little easier on them!
