Kinders Using Skitch to Develop Descriptive Words

My students have been loving Skitch so much that they have been trying to find ways to use it all the time. This past week we used it when we were working on developing descriptive words. Using descriptive words is something we have been discussing as a way to make our stories more interesting.

To begin with we all took a picture of the same thing, a shell. Each student went about trying to think of words they could use to describe this shell to someone who has never seen it. Too cool!

Next they wanted to work on describing something of their choosing. This proved to be a bit more difficult for some of them. A couple students chose to take pictures of things that were very difficult to describe. After they struggled a bit we discussed why they were having difficulty and they then chose to try again with something that lent itself a bit more to the exercise. Here are some of the results:

I can’t wait to see what they come up with next!
