Nearly every day something eventful happens in children's lives. Capture those moments with Stories From Experience.
Set up a classroom easel with lined chart paper. Bring students together around the easel and ask an question, such as, "What sounds did you hear at the pond today?" Write student contributions on the easel paper with Crayola® Washable Markers. Inform students that they will be using these sounds to compose an original story.
Students collaborate to create their story. Ask one student to begin the story with the opening sentence. Then select another student to continue with the second sentence, and so on until all students have contributed to the writing. Once complete, encourage students to re-read their story and revise as needed.
Place the easel paper with their story in the center of a large piece of roll paper. Provide each student with a set of Crayola Colored Pencils and ask them to create illustrations to accompany the story. Display the completed writing experience in the classroom so that students can re-visit the story and see other student illustrations.
Let's make something!
