Practice sequential story retellings with colorful, collaged Book Banners.
Listen carefully to a story that contains a clear sequence of events, such as The Emperor's New Clothes.
Individually or in small groups, choose a scene from the story to depict in a collage. Plan how to visually communicate the elements of the action including setting, characters, action, and dialogue. Sketch the scene on paper with Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils. Be sure all scenes are sketched by the class. Measure the amount of fabric (or roll paper) needed for the banner background. Cut with Crayola Scissors.
Cut or tear fabric, paper, and collage supplies such as chenille sticks, buttons, and ribbons to create the scene. Attach pieces to the background with Crayola Washable Glue Sticks or School Glue. Draw details and dialogue with Crayola Washable Markers.
Arrange the banners in sequence. Number each, and add titles to explain the scene using markers. Retell the story to a teacher or classmates, using the Book Banners.
