Using a Picture Prompt to Write a Story

I am learning to use a picture prompt to help generate story ideas.

I know I can do it when I can write a story based on a picture prompt.

Yesterday, your task was to think of some interesting sentences to describe the picture above. Those sentences and ideas will help you with today’s learning.

Independent Task

Using the picture prompt as a starting point, your task today is to write a story.

You could use the whole picture as an idea OR just part of the picture that you can see, for example the balloons, the beach or the girl.

Don’t forget to include:

  • A setting – where the story takes place.
  • Characters – who the story is about.
  • A problem – What goes wrong for your characters?
  • A solution – How is the problem solved?
