You could have the characters in the pictures carry on a conversation. You could write the conversation in speech bubbles and have the students write the conversation correctly. This would cover capitalization, comma use, quotation marks and many other things - especially if you threw in things like book titles!

Example:
Speech Bubble 1: What are you looking for?
Speech Bubble 2: My umbrella.
Speech Bubble 3: Why?
Speech Bubble 4: Do you hear the rain?

Students Write:
Henry asked, "What are you looking for?"
James answered, "My umbrella."
Henry asked, "Why?"
James answered, "Do you hear the rain?"

You could also reverse this where you give the conversation and the students write what belongs in the bubbles.

Students could try to see how many words they could use before repeating a "speech" word - said, screamed, answered, yelled, whispered, croaked, gasped, sighed, etc.

This came to mind because a fellow teacher and I just gathered information to present a "Say What?!" workshop at school all based on speech bubbles and cartoons. Many of the ideas we had could be adapted to what your doing. Of course, that's all at school and we're out.

If you want me to send you some of the ideas we had, let me know and I'll send them to you when we're back in school or over the summer if I ever make it up there.

You can create "ransom" words with letters cut out of old magazines. Encourage students to find words within their spelling words. Example: Cut out hair and then find a c and s and glue together to make the word chairs.

A classmate in an education course used pictures she cut from old magazines as inspirations/illustrations when she introduced the haiku and had us write our own. As a future math and science teacher, I almost missed the relevance of what she did. Among the choices the class was given, there were one or two included specifically for what she knew of each of her classmate/students' interests. She observed the 2 pictures each of us chose to confirm perceived interests and/or add new ones. Of course, the haiku provided more information.

I think I read this idea somewhere on Proteacher. When we learned about fact and opinion, the students found a picture (the best ones were of animals) and glued it at the top of a piece of construction paper. Underneath the picture they made 2 columns: fact and opinion. In the columns, I had them write 4 facts about the object in the picture and 4 opinions about the object in the picture.

What's the ideas out there for using old magazine/calendar pictures?

Here's mine:

Noun Find-cut out a picture and place it on a 3-column graph under person, place, or thing

Basket stories (from another teacher here): Have pre-cut mag pictures in a basket to draw and write a story about the picture.

Description: Go through a particular environment and be descriptive/use senses/adjectives.

Have pre-cut pictures and write a caption about the picture.

What else for a 3rd grade level?
