Skill Level: Grades 3-5 Curriculum: Language Arts Social Studies Activity Details: A graphic organizer is a tool to use graphic representation to provide an organizational structure for writing. One simple vehicle is to write about pictures. This basic template gives the student or teacher the opportunity to place a set of pictures at the bottom of the screen. As the student "turns" the page, they click on a picture to serve as the writing stimulus.
What’s new and different about this? 1) The student has the power to organize their writing by choosing the picture for each page. 2) The window has been specifically sized to fit most horizontal digital pictures without making them look stretched.
How to use this: Populate each button at the bottom of the screen with the digital picture. Save your work. Then, use it this way: on each page, click on an image to fill the screen with the photo. Write about the photo.

10/17/2006 Janine Pang Arjan- Great activity. How about adding another (optional) sccaffold for those who may need a word or phrase bank for each picture.
Thank you so much.
