Descriptive Writing | Fun /Quirky Picture Prompts | Distance Learning I set 1
⭐These engaging, visual writing prompts with pictures will get even your most reluctant writer writing! ⭐
These fun writing prompts are no prep, just print and go.
✔These images are scaffolded by using the students senses to add interest to their writing
Sensory details include sight, sound, touch, smell, and taste.
✔Writers employ the five senses to engage a reader's interest. If you want your writing to jump off the page, then bring your reader into the world you are creating.
✔When describing a past event, try and remember what you saw, heard, touched, smelled, and tasted, then incorporate that into your writing.
✔Sensory details are used in any great story, literary or not. Think about your favourite movie or video game. What types of sounds and images are used?
What do your favorite characters taste, smell, and touch?
✔Without sensory details, stories would fail to come to life.
✔When sensory details are used, your readers can personally experience whatever you're trying to describe, reminding them of their own experiences, giving your writing a universal feel. A universal quality is conveyed when the writer can personally connect with the readers.
✔Another note about sensory details: there is no one sense that's more important than another. It all depends on the scene you're trying to create.
However, imagery, the sight sense, is a common feature in vivid writing.
✔These are perfect for Writer's Workshop, Work on Writing, Writing Centers, Substitute Teachers, and Fast Finishers.
✔These quirky picture prompts are a great way to let the kiddos choose what they want to write about, while also helping to spark their imaginations!
