Creative Writing Assets: Sights, Sounds, Oh My!

Page history last edited by MrsK Books 2 years, 4 months ago

 Grade Levels: 3-12

Description:  I chose images that would prompt a writer's imagination. During creative writing, students often encounter "blank" moments.  Those "blank" moments can get a boost of creativity from visual and audio stimulation.  These assets will promote new discoveries as students search for the right word choicesettingcharacterizationdetail, or story plots.
