I wrote a post the other day about turning words into pictures and a picture being worth 1,000 words.
This lead to me to find stories that are told using only pictures.
This could be a great inference lesson.
The first "Story" I found was:
My little mentee brought this one to my attention:
I saw this on Pinterest the other day and thought it was sweet also:
I thought I could show these to my students and have them create captions for the pictures inferring what is occurring in the photos and then write a story based only on the photos and their inferences.
But wait there's more!
I thought that after doing this assignment, perhaps I could have kids create a photo story of their own. I could split them into groups and they could plan, storyboard, and direct photo shoots of their own devising.
I could limit the stories to a certain number of pictures and have them printed at Wal Mart for 4 cents a piece and have the groups create a storyboard
I could have them create a slideshow of the images themselves.
Then each group would be assigned another group's photo slideshow and infer/write the story they think they were trying to tell!
If you are interested in any of my inference lessons:
