Pobble365 -

How to use:
Starting with a weird, wonderful and/or thought provoking image, you will be inspired to write creatively. If the image itself doesn’t spark a thousand ideas, simply scroll down and use the activities we provide. Use them as they are or as a starting point for something even bigger. Begin with a discussion, answering the questions underneath the image; improve the ‘sick’ sentences that are given — a quick, simple and fun way to cover that grammar, punctuation or spelling objective; attack the sentence challenge either as new learning or a bit of revision and to finish with, create a short/extended story using the story starter provided.
