Make your own story pictures

Submitted by Rosemarie Lamothe (10-10-2012)

Choose a fairy tale or any well known story. List the characters and nouns according to the situation ( boy, girl, tree, flower etc).

Get the pictures from clipart sites. Print them and cut them out. If you need the story with words in it, print them as well.

Laminate each picture / word story. Use them to retell the story and stick the pictures and words on the board as you tell it or stick them on a popstick and use them in a sand-tray as you tell the story.

Children can use these resources to retell the story themselves as independent group work or as a guided activity.

While studying narratives, I divided the class into groups of three or four. Each group was given a written version of a story with no pictures.

It was their job to read the story, divide it into equal parts (for each student of the group, and then illustrate their part of the story.

From there they created a powerpoint as a group. The students (with the teachers help) took a photo of their illustrations and uploaded them onto their powerpoints.

They then had to record the part of the story to their illustration. After that, we all sat down and enjoyed listening to their stories and admiring their fine art!

  • I am struggling with Handwriting programs and this sounds like lots of fun. My way of Teaching is, if the children have fun, they will remember it and I am betting that this will work exceptionally well.
