The Snapshot Writing Tool: Help Students Create Visual Imagery Within Their Writing

The Snapshot Writing Tool: Help Students Create Visual Imagery Within Their Writing | Writing Activities for Kids | Scoop.it

From Kevin's fabulous Edgalaxy Blog:

The Snapshot Writing Tool is designed to put students in a specific moment in time using a visual prompt such as a photo or video and then write about what you see? What you hear? What you smell? What you taste? and what you feel? Drawing upon all 5 senses.

The snapshot writing tool will really encourage your students create visual imagery within their writing, and they have a great deal of fun putting themselves in the perspective of the picture.

Students can either use a photo of their own anlongside the tool or alternately you can access my collection of 150 Amazing writing prompts here.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, January 5, 2013 10:17 PM

I'm always interested in a good prompt!

Sarah Gordon-Church's curator insight, October 1, 2013 3:22 AM

This is a FANTASTIC way to overcome the hesitant, fearful writer, the emerging writer, and the advanced writer all in one scoop! :) I have used this with success EVERY YEAR! The kids love it, it's relatable and produces some amazing alternatives to the boring form writing. This makes writing come alive for so many of my students! It boosts confidence and changes "Ugh, do we hafta write?" to "OOOOO! Can we do some more snapshot writing today!?!PLEASE!"
