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 believe with report writing, it's important to not generalise or be too 'flowery' in the comments. As a parent, I appreciate knowing which skills/areas my children need strengthening in. So as a rule of thumb - when it comes to report writing - I always start with a positive, then I mention an area that the student needs further development in and then I finish off on a high with another positive. Works a treat!

  • Great site. I downloaded lots of resources when I taught year 1. However, I cannot find much for Year 3 and I was looking forward to it. Could you please upload more for stage 2. Thanks

  • There are about 11 or 12 spelling choices for the speech sound sssss, so look at the THRASS resource chart. Not all there. It has left my child bored, and being told to learn the charts which still don't help him to spell the words he wants to spell, and is always being told its a catchall. A thumbs down for me too. Ken
