Creative Writing Assets: Sights, Sounds, Oh My !

Page history last edited by PBworks 13 years ago

Idea Prompts:                                                        Grade Levels: 3-12

Developed by: MrsK Books

 

Description:  I chose images that would prompt a writer's imagination. During creative writing, students often encounter "blank" moments.  Those "blank" moments can get a boost of creativity from visual and audio stimulation.  These assets will promote new discoveries as students search for the right word choice, setting, characterization, detail, or story plots.
