Gather students in their classroom reading area. Open a discussion about favorite places they have visited or want to visit. Create a list of student contributions on a classroom white board using Crayola Dry Erase Markers. As students peruse their list, ask which might be a fascinating setting for a story? A castle? Mars? The rainforest?
Inform students that they will be illustrating stories that are not yet written. These stories are in their imaginations! Using Crayola Washable Markers students will draw their scenes on white paper. Encourage them to fill in all of the spaces because they will write their stories around the edges of the paper and even on top of their drawings! Include details that give hints about what happens in the story.
Encourage students to switch marker colors at this point in the illustration's development.
If additional room is needed, students may finish their writing on more paper. Embellish pages by flipping over the markers and using the special color switcher tips, or by selecting another Washable Marker color.
Provide time in the school day for students to read their stories to classmates and share illustrations.
