Blast off with this great video writing prompt and quick write activity
We are trying new things here at literacyideas.com, and over the coming months, we are looking to create a growing library of video content to support teachers and students to become better readers and writers.
So here is our first attempt, this is a video writing prompt for a quick writing activity known as snapshot writing.
Snapshot Writing is a great way to get students to write about an exact moment in time. It is an opportunity to laser focus on how our senses and emotions react to the world and events around us.
Using this method students simply write what they see, hear, feel, smell, see and taste. This is a great task to aid students to create imagery within their writing.
It is always written from a first-person perspective and will force your students to think outside the box when describing any event or action in future.
Simply put the video on and relax as all the guidance and instruction is included in the video itself.
We are looking to create many more of these videos and would greatly appreciate any advice or feedback. If you like what we have produced be sure to like and subscribe as there will be more coming in the very near future.
