Picture Perfect Narrative Writing
Our new reading series at school uses a lot of photo cards. We use them to introduce our new vocabulary words and to retell our stories. The students absolutely love looking at real pictures. After learning about a fabulous site where you can purchase photographs to use, I knew that I wanted to come up with a writing unit where students could tell and write about real pictures. This past week, we wrote about one of our pictures from the packet. I displayed this picture with my projector. We had a discussion about the picture and the students brainstormed what they think may be happening. Next, we began filling in our graphic organizer to tell about our story. The next day, we looked at our story again and began our writing. When the students were finished with their writing, they used an editing checklist to edit their own papers, then switched with a classmate to edit each others papers. This particular unit includes 30 photo picture prompts to use for narrative writing.
