Take a look at my Story Snapshot Writing Center.
I've never figured out how to manage free for all magazine cut and paste in my classroom.
For one, some of the ads or articles your kiddos may run across as they cut and clip are not classroom appropriate.
So I did the prepping ahead of time.
I used magazines and the "teacher junk mail" packs for sources to get clip happy.
I glued pictures down to backing and laminated them.
Now I have a creative and reuseable "Story Snapshot" writing center.
Who wouldn't want to write about an elephant in a jar?
Fun story starters for the boys
Here's the writing sheet I plan to use
