We spent last week describing people and understanding nouns (places, things, people). Since we spent so much time describing I decided that we would use the pictures we previously talked about to encourage the students to write a story. By the end of this trimester students need to be able to write a story and deliver it to their class as if they were a storyteller. So, each student got a picture of a place, two pictures of a person, and a set of opposites. This group of girls got a picture of the desert, a picture of a man with a mustache, a woman with blond hair, and the words hot/cold. Here is their story complete with a picture (by the way, you know it will be a good story when the title is “Honeymoon”):

Man I love my students : )
