Summer Photos + Creative Writing Visual Story Prompts + 31 Fun Teaching Activities For The Classroom

Summer Photos + Creative Writing Visual Story Prompts + 31 Fun Teaching Activities For The Classroom

You could look at it directly as a presentation and discuss the different locations being shown in each of the photos. I have combined a summer photos presentation, with a set of creative writing prompts and 31 fun teaching activities linked to these photo flashcards to try in the classroom. You could print off and laminate the photos to make an interesting, eye-catching set of story prompts. The students could also take five of the laminated photos and create them into a story . The photos could also be used as prompts for creative writing, factual writing or descriptive writing.

This is one of a collection of assemblies on The Seasons - the others all available separately (Autumn, Winter and Spring) from this website and www.plays-r-ussell.com Sample Text: (Sound of another kind of buzzing) (Whole cast fling their arms around, in agitation) (Enter wasp, Child 29) Narrator: Oh dear! Just when everything was so perfect! A wasp! Wasp: Hey! That’s not very nice! Narrator: And neither are you! Always making a nuisance of yourself! Wasp: Well, I do love those picnics! Narrator: But we don’t love you! Especially not your stings! Wasp: Well, (looking at the cast) if you wouldn’t all wave your arms around! That just gets me really angry! Narrator: And there’s nothing worse than an angry wasp! (Narrator swats wasp away with a piece of newspaper) Narrator: Be off with you!

Covers all aspects of the curriculum including: - Sequence sentences to form short narratives - Separate words with spaces - Use spacing between words that reflects the size of the letters. - Understanding how grammatical patterns in a sentence indicate its function as an exclamation - Using an exclamation mark with an interjection - Identify and use appropriate end punctuation to demarcate different sentence types (exclamation) - Using exclamation marks both for emphasis in statements and commands, and to mark exclamations Challenges are provided on editable slides. They can be used to demonstrate approaches to writing sentences and edited to create your own additional challenges. Challenges are based on a theme of 'mermaids and water monsters' to stimulate creative thinking and writing. Each challenge involves some unpunctuated text for children to rewrite with punctuation.

These accompany each set of challenges and progressively increase the methods of punctuation to check. Space is provided for a self-check and a peer-check.
