On this Monday morning, if you are in search of ideas to inspire your students to write and think creatively, here is a cool inspired picture writing tool: Piclits
The tool gives us images and keywords that we can drag and drop on the right place and the right order to capture the essence, story and the meaning of the picture. If you don’t want to use the words that Piclits offers you, you can also choose freestyle option to being writing on the picture with your own words. When you are done, you can download the picture to use.
We can use the pictures and words as a story starter to inspire students to write longer or shorter stories together. This tool can be used for descriptive writing, character traits, creating quotes, writing a poem. It can be suggested to high achievers who are looking for more ways to practice English at home.
