getting the students to write a composition

For dovrim (native speakers), they should be able to work more on their own, or in pairs. My group was the other end of the spectrum. But first teach them the basis of simple stories by using the question words. They should learn that a story has beginning, middle end, conflict and resolution.
Collect pictures from all over, magazines, internet, or like mine were sent by my son when trekking around. Mount them on bristol and code them. Have the kids write the code so you'll know which they used. You can reuse the pictures if they're mounted, like I did.

Considering that not all Israeli students are taught composition skills, it would be good to do a sample first together.

Please let me know what happens.
Good luck!
