Tips for Using the Caption This! Writing Prompts Printable Pack:

  1. Use this as a game. Cut out the photos and shuffle. One person will play the judge and the others will write captions. Have the writers write captions and turn upside down so the judge cannot see who wrote which response. When all players are finished writing their captions, the judge will turn them over and decide which one fits the photo best. The person who wins that round gets the photo. You can play with two people by having the judge decide which of two captions fit the photo best. After a few rounds the other person acts as the judge.
  2. After your child gets comfortable writing captions/short descriptive sentences perhaps have your child write newspaper headlines for the photos. You can also add in other photos to this activity.
