Tell Me a Story (using Pictures)
This activity involves pictures drawn by the students. Give the students three words(objects.) They have to use those words in the story in any way they can. I like to use a rabbit, bridge and a key. I draw a 12 boxes within a big box on paper. I have the student draw a story using those boxes using more if needed. After he/she finishes I get them to explain each picture in words to me. I listen and repeat what he/she said the proper way if it was incorrect. This activity works well with children (ages 8-13).
I usually tell them to color it nicely and then I frame the picture.
