PicLits - Inspired picture writing

PicLits - Inspired picture writing | Figurative Language & Poetry | Scoop.it

A fun tool pairing visual literacy & text literacy; select a picture & then drag words based on a concept, theme, story, reflection, etc. They can be as simple as 5 words or as many as 50. A good tool for encouraging concise writing & reflection. While an obvious tool for writing poetry & exploring figurative language, it can be a good way to apply those skills to less obvious subject areas like science, history, & even math. You can share creations via email, social media & save them. Be aware that this is not a monitored site but most content is fine, just a caution for those at the elementary &/or middle school level.

Amanda Long's insight:

Students can really use good detail in their writing when describing pictures.  This would be great for middle schoolers who are really trying to give their writing a little more spice!

A great way to engage students!! What is better than allowing them to listen to music during reading class?
