Five Card Flickr

Summary:
Sometimes images help us create our stories. At the Five Card Flickr Site, use the five pictures to develop a short story. Think of the plot profile organizer to help you  develop characters, establish the problem,  manage the actions of the characters to solve the problem, set a turning point (climax), and resolve the problem using the five images. Create a title and short explanation. Name it with "eagle" and the first three letters of your code name to submit.  This is a public writing board. Use your best and most positive ideas.

You may also complete the Plot Profile with your ideas to write your story in google docs; include your title and code from this site to credit the pictures.

Directions:
Go to the Five Card Flickr Site.
Click on the Five Card Flickr tab to get a set of pictures. 
Choose one picture to start the story. Keep choosing a picture that adds to your story until five have been chosen.
Note: Each time you choose a picture, another picture is added for you to choose.
Create a title. 
Add your name: name it with "eagle" and the first three letters of your code name.
Explain your story.
Enter the captcha.
Click submit.

Use the images to develop your setting, characters, plot, and resolution in a google docs story.

Show, Don't Tell

Summary/Directions:
Open a google document. Share it with your teacher. Choose a character.  Choose an emotion.  Write the statement. Replace the statement of emotion with a description showing the emotion. 

Example:

Character: Pooka
Emotion: Excited
Statement:
 Pooka was excited.
Description:

Pooka's ears perked up.  She growled a low and soft, "Grrrrrrrr.  Grrrrrr." Off the couch she bounded and raced to the sliding back door. Her tail dropped and she continued to growl. Glancing back at us, she barked once, then growled again at something in the back yard.
