CAPTION THIS.. a writing activity

I have been bragging about my kiddos' writing for some time on Instagram…
and I kept saying I was working on a blog post about my CAPTION THIS activity...



I wasn't really "working" on it on the computer…
I was "working" on it in my head… *wink*
and now that I have it all organized in my head… HAHA

  7. Fabulous idea! Thanks for the detailed explanation of its implementation. Do you know the game Bubble Talk? It has some crazy FUNNY photos and possible captions for each one - basically it's like Apples to Apples, just with a picture to start with. Sometimes I play it with my whole class as a brain break. I can totally see this idea being applied to the pictures that come with the game. Kids could have fun coming up with some parody headlines that are made to sound serious, but are actually ridiculous (a la "The Onion"). Anyway, thanks again for sharing!
