Picture Stories

Found in: creative writing; technology tools

I take digital photos of things going on around our school. I print a copy for our photo wall but I also insert the photo in a Word document and save the file with the names of the students in the picture and the date. Students can open them easily by finding their name or their friend's name in the file name. Once open, students can write a sentence or story about the picture and print it. I pre-format the Word document with a large size font so it's ready to go. Children sometimes type random letters but they can read their story because the picture reminds them. Other students prefer to dictate a story to a buddy, volunteer or a teacher. Often children will see a picture on the photo wall and ask a staff member to help them bring it up on the computer.
