I recently had my students find 3 pictures and write 3 sentences about each. They were to use verbs, vocabulary, and grammar they have been learning.
This is a great way to get your students to pull all the different things they are learning together and use them either in written format or for conversation in an open ended way. Their creativity will amaze you!
The above paper was done by one of my 6th grade students.
Give this a try. If you do this, you will love seeing what they do!
