    Hi! I do this every year with my 4th graders. They love it. I use magazines to find interesting pictures. I cut out and laminate many to choose from to allow students' choice. You'd be surprised at the stories my students come up with! We brainstorm together with an example picture on the overhead. We discuss setting, characters, possible problems and solutions. They then "make-up" each aspect for their own pictures. Their stories are then written. We display their pictures along with their stories on our board that says, "A Picture is Worth Lots of Words"! The kids love this every year. Try it, I think you'll like it, too. Good luck!
