Timeslips pictures


Recommended Posts

I am trying to find places online to download for free pictures for timeslips. I know I can find great pictures and use any of them. I am wondering if there are specific pictures that are better for this type of activity and where I might find them. Thank you in advance. :P

Forgive my ignorance, what is a timeslip?

 

They are pictures that are used to then do story telling. You can go to timeslips.org and they have a few pictures and sample stories. The idea that you get the resident interaction. I just don't know if any picture will be sufficient.

Ok, now that I'veeducated myself (and I love this idea), I would reccomend Norman Rockwell paintings. Their very thought provoking pics. Also go around with a camera and take pics of things you could use. So if I sound full of it, remember I just learned about this for the first time and don't have a clue what I'm writing about. ( hehe)

 

Thank you for introducing me to a new idea. I'll be sure to add it to november's calendar. I have a slot I think it'll fit into nicely. Does anyone have a list of questions you are supposed to ask?

That is a really good idea with taking my own pictures as well. Check out the timeslips.org website they have sample stories. I was looking through my notes from a class and got these websites for great pictures as well, oddanimals.com; skoopy.com; and picturepop.com. The sky is the limit with this activity... depending on the person leading it can go in a lot of directions. People suggest writing down word for word everything that is said. Then you can write up the story with the photos... and who knows eventually put them into a book.

I had a similar program a couple years ago. I ordered b&w pics from one of the suppliers-GaryGrimm or Nasco, don't remember. I called the program StoryPics (not sure if Timeslips would be a copyright problem). I would try to blow up the photo but of course it doesn't do too well, but also used the original 4x6. I would tell them to each take a person in the photo, and invent them. Give them a name, I would ask questions, i.e., single, kids, profession, live in country or city, etc. and they would tell me what they are doing there, i.e., on a train-where are they going, who are they meeting, etc. This did pretty well except for a couple of things-one lady who leads everything (we all have one of those) would take over, and some who parrot would only repeat what she said. Another problem was: I would write the story down and print it in the newsletter. It turns out, one lady noticed a man in the group, and gave a person in the photo this man's name. When his wife, who was so upset over him having to be placed in the home that she didn't visit often, it hurt so much-read it, a daughter asked me about the circumstances, as her mother was fearing that another lady and her husband were interested! Oh, my, at least the lady did come and we discussed it and she eventually was able to voice her thoughts about missing him and she actually started visiting more often, and enjoying the visits, and the daughters were able to tell me, after he had passed, that it turned out in the long run the best thing, as mom spent more time and had less to regret than if she had continued to stay away. So, that was an odd side effect that I never expected, jealousy, but it ended well! Whew! We haven't done these in a long time, the stories all started to sound the same, led that "the leader". Maybe it's time to bring them back again, with a new crew-maybe as a pre-meal!
