Howard, I love how your pictures capture the basics . The kids seem engaged and attentive. Each picture could serve as a
Starter for question raising, for descriptive poetry, for pieces of art, for identifying emotions, for one liners....for an activity whereby
A student matched a key phrase from a piece of literature or from a news clip and elaborated on the bond with the images in the picture...
