End of Year Filler #2

Here is another time filler or center activity:

Picture writing
Step 1: get pictures- from magazines, calendars, greeting cards,pokemon cards, baseball cards, anything and everything
Step 2: hand out - or if using in a center, put in a box
Step 3: students write about the pictures.  For my firsties, I wanted them to write 5 sentences. 1 descriptive sentence. 1 question.1 exclamatory sentence. 2 sentences about the tells about the picture and answers a "wh" question.
Some of the best writing I ever got was from this activity.  They loved my example and couldn't wait to get their picture.
