Picture Word Connections

PicLits is a site that provides a collection of pictures and the option to use a word bank or the ooportunity create your own words.  You can drag and drop words from the word bank onto your picture.  At first glance it's a fun adaption of refrigerator magnets.

On second reflection, I realize that it could evolve to be much more.  The opening lines to develop a setting- language development - poetry.  Showing students ways to connect text-to-self and text-to-world.  I really like having the picture as a springboard to making deeper connections.  In years past I have used pictures from magazines to use as writing prompts.

I'm going to use this PicLits picture for this weeks writing prompt.
