Recently the 1st grade class has learned a new method for getting story ideas.  Whenever students are fresh out of ideas for what to write about they can look through a selection of classroom magazines and catalogs.  Students then pick a picture that inspires a story idea.  They cut the picture out, glue it into their writing journal, and then write whatever story or thoughts came to mind when they first saw the picture.  This has been a favorite free choice activity in our room here lately.  The kids have found some very interesting pictures and have even better story ideas to go with them!
