I have just stumbled across a brand new tool that would be worth keeping an eye on. The site is called Pictlit. This site allows students to drag and drop words from the provided word bank onto a picture to create a sentence, paragraph, or poem pertaining to the picture. Students can also use a "freestyle" option which lets them type their own words rather than use those from the word bank. The pictures right now are limited and the option to upload one of your own is not allowed at this point but is a feature coming soon. Click on mine below to see it at 100%.
This site does have ads so use caution.
_Hi, my name is Melanie Lewis. I am an Instructional Technology Resource Teacher for Amherst County Public Schools,
located in the beautiful state of Virginia. I LOVE my job! I get to
work on my hobby, anything that has to do with computers. I get to work
with teachers and students, and I am definitely a people person. Plus,
I DO NOT have to give grades. Wonderful, huh? Let me know how I can help you better integrate technology into your classroom.
