Last week I posted about a few strategies for using thought cloud prompts in your ESL classes. (Here’s a link, in case you missed it.) Today I’m back to follow up with a bunch of new picture prompts to help you bring comics and bubbles into your classroom. I plan to come back an update this post with specific ideas on how to use each one in your classes. In the meantime, if you have any ideas and would like to contribute, please feel free to leave a comment in the box at the bottom of the page or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And now for the prompts
- Sometimes you just find yourself alone, gazing at the sunset, dressed in a bunny suit…
2. What’s going on in this vintage children’s book illustration?
3. Did I brush my teeth this morning?
4. What’s wrong?
5. How does my hat look?
6. One day a Hollywood talent agent will walk down this block…
7. French fry crumbs!
8. My arm is tired.
9. Is it lunch time yet?
If you try any of these out in your classes, please let us know in the comment box below. I’m super-interested in hearing what you did, how your students reacted, and whether you’d like to see more of these in the future.
