Step into 2nd Grade with Mrs. Lemons: Our First Day! I wanted to extend on their summer plans and incorporate our school theme of superheroes for an activity that I could display in the hallway. So, I called on all of my uber-talented teacher friends... and Deanna Jump came to my rescue! She made this cutie patootie superhero craft that was perfect for today!

Photo writing prompt
I love this photo. Polar bears are so beautiful and my favorite animal. Two worlds curious about one another.
:) polar bear found a new friend
I worked at a zoo once, and it was common knowledge that the polar bear was the most dangerous animal in the zoo. This picture gives me pause...
.I saw a polar bear doing this at the zoo, and then he attacked the window glass. He's not cute, he wants to eat the kid.
Underwater Polar Bear looking at little girl through glass at the zoo. So cute.

Free! Figurative language anchor word wall cards. Hyperbole, personification, alliteration, metaphor, simile, idioms, & more. For a quick, spontaneous ELA writing activity, I like to attach a few of these to the white board, give the students post-its, an instruct them to write an example of each and stick it on the board near the corresponding poster. If time permits, after every student has at least one on the board, they go get a random one and evaluate it.

UNDER THE RUG: This is one sample of amazing pictures for creative story writing (click on "Back to Harris Burdick" for more charcoal drawings.). If you only use one set of picture and lifted line prompts...use these. The resulting stories will amaze you.

This is the wonderful Mysteries of Harris Burdick by Chris Van Allsburg, of The Polar Express fame. I chose this edition of the book because it is a great big portfolio of the original pictures from the book that can be used as posters. Each page is a glorious 11 x 17 hard tag poster. The opening story on its own poster at the front. Each poster can be framed or displayed upon the walls of a class room to inspire young authors to write down the stories that mysteriously appear in their minds.
Chris Van Allsburg; Children's book illustrator and Caldecot winner. Author of The Mysteries of Harris Burdock, Jumanji Polar Express.
Harris Burdick portfolio of pictures - this links to the Barnes and Noble site where you can purchase this excellent source for interesting writing prompts. These pictures have such a mysterious background, which will interest students even more. Middle school and high school students will want to write and share their stories.
Chris Van Allsburg is amazing. The Mysteries of Harris Burdick is an incredible creative writing resource. The most intriguing illustrations and story starters.

Dust Bowl - Farm being inundated by dust storm, April 15, 1935, Boise City, Oklahoma
What: This is picture of a dustbowl storm. Credible: This picture is credible because it’s from “The National Geographic” and it was taken by a newspaper photographer in 1930’s. Changing Lives: The dust bowl storms were a result of 10 years of drought which affected Canadians in a vast number of ways some of them being increasing cost of farmed goods, less farmed goods, disabling people to leave their homes, etc...
About to be engulfed in a gigantic dust cloud is a peaceful little ranch in Boise City, Oklahoma where the topsoil is being dried and blown away during the years of the Dust Bowl in central North America. Severe drought, poor farming techniques and devastating storms rendered millions of acres of farmland useless During the Great Depression. This photo was taken on April 15, 1935. (AP Photo)
