when teaching present progressive: have students pick out a picture special to them...then have them write about being "frozen in that moment." what is going on during that time that picture was taken? Great writing idea!!

Have kids tell a short story this way. Tell them how many pictures they can have (min/max) and let them tell a story. - I love this idea so much!!! We all know how much kids like taking pictures of themselves :D
