Today I would like you to try writing from a photo. It could be a photo from your past or one you have taken recently. You could even “steal” someone else’s photo if you are photography challenged like I am. (I “stole” from one of my facebook friends who is really into photography. Of course, I did ask her first.) Here is what I created today when I wrote from a photo. I played around on canva.com to make it pretty. The poem I worked on in my notebook.
Writing from a photo is a great way to help kids get their creative juices flowing. It helps narrow down the possibilities a bit and some kids need help with that.
