Photo Punctuation

 A picture really is worth a thousand words! I remember using this fun activity. First, cut out and laminate a high-interest magazine picture (or use a personal photograph). Attach the picture to the top of poster board. At the left end of each line, write a punctuation mark. Challenge each student to write a sentence that relates to the picture and contains the punctuation mark. Use the sentences to write your own story about the photograph. This is a great review of punctuation usage and writing complete sentences! Ready to give it a try?

There is a cute children's book called "Pelican Pete" and more Pelican photos that you can read from an older post of mine here

"A young boy, who has never seen the sea, asks his mother to describe it. From there, Zolotow carefully chooses her words to create a poem full of the colors, sounds, and sights of a day at the beach. Minor's softly detailed renderings reinforce the gentle mood."
