One thing I LOVE to do with my students is to find clip art or drawings that depict a story that goes along with their vocabulary.
I usually find 6-8 photos that can follow a story and put them on a piece of paper. Then, I ask them to write a story that the photos could illustrate. I give prizes to the stories that are the most "extravagant" but still follow the photos. Extravagance includes accuracy, details (both seen and unseen), extras, etc. I also leave out the "last photo" and ask them to use their imaginations to finish the story.
At the end, they all share. It's always a lot of fun to see what they all came up with, especially for an ending.
