PicLits is a website that basically offers a catalogue of pictures for which you can make captions. The captions can be created from a word bank underneath that changes based on the selected picture, and variations of the chosen words are offered (such as plurals). This is one of those sites where the user can differentiate for him or her self. Single words can be selected for beginning English speakers – or entire sentences and paragraphs can be added. Some users offer famous quotations for the pictures, while other users lend a sense of humor to the image with a quip, as you can see below. There are links to several blog sites that give recommendations for using PicLits in the classroom. As always, though, it is important for the teacher to preview images before recommending the site to your students.
