Storytelling Prompts for Kids - Tell Me A Story

The theme for November is Fairy Tales, Fables and Fractured Fairy Tales. My daughters have actually been reading quite a few fairy tale chapter books lately. There is something about fairy tales and fables that is always appealing to children. My youngest daughter came across the book “Clemency Pogue, Fairy Killer” by JT Petty and illustrated by Will Davis. Storytelling plays an important part in the book, Clemency’s family likes to sit around telling stories. When Clemency is attacked by an evil fairy, she remembers the tale of Peter Pan, as her father had told her one evening. Picture Perfect Narrative Writing. Our new reading series at school uses a lot of photo cards.

Picture Perfect Narrative Writing

We use them to introduce our new vocabulary words and to retell our stories. The students absolutely love looking at real pictures. After learning about a fabulous site where you can purchase photographs to use, I knew that I wanted to come up with a writing unit where students could tell and write about real pictures. This past week, we wrote about one of our pictures from the packet. I displayed this picture with my projector. We had a discussion about the picture and the students brainstormed what they think may be happening. Next, we began filling in our graphic organizer to tell about our story.

I love to write about journaling tips, creative journaling and journal writing techniques. But I am most often asked for a listing of journaling topics and prompts. Writing in a journal is one of my very favorite activities, and I hope it is one of your student’s favorite activities, too. Personally, I am rarely at a loss for something to write about in my journal, but many people need some help to get them started writing.

Lightning Bug. How it works. Goodnight Mister Tom: A book review. Michelle Magorian’s novel Goodnight Mister Tom is a moving tale of an eight-year-old boy, William Beech who is evacuated from London’s Deptford area to go and live in a village called Little Weirwold shortly before the Second World War breaks out.

Goodnight Mister Tom: A book review

With an abusive history, a weak, pale William arrives in Little Weirwold and is placed under the care of Tom Oakley, a healthy, middle-aged man famous in his close-knit village for being a recluse, just because he lives next to the local church in accordance to the specific instructions of William’s mother. Tom reluctantly agrees to take him in, in the name of ‘national duty’, neither of them considering how this small act of ‘national duty’ was going to change their lives forever. And thus began a journey of recovery and rediscovery for the two of them.

This journey makes up the crux of the novel. His overbearing, extremely religious mother conditioned him that he was inherently bad and thus deserved to be punished. Worksheets, Lesson Plans, Teacher Resources, and Rubrics from TeAch-nology.com. First grade writing rubric.

Storybird - Artful storytelling. Hur funkar Storybird? Recension av Bookabi - Skapa din egen illustrerade bok. Användningsområden Bookabi är en app som låter dig skapa illustrerade berättelser med hjälp av tillhörande bakgrunder, bilder och karaktärer. Man kan också använda egna bilder som bakgrunder eller bilder, samt skapa egna figurer. Appen är gratis, men det går att köpa till olika ”packs” för att få ytterligare bakgrunder, bilder och figurer. Möjligheten att spela in ljud finns också, vilket kan vara en bra funktion om man har elever som ogärna framför sina arbeten inför klassen. Problemet med detta är att ljudet inte går att dela via mail, då boken som skapats görs om till en PDF-fil.

Appen lämpar sig som ett verktyg när du i undervisningen vill att eleverna ska skapa texter av olika längd, främst i berättelseform. Supporten om man skulle få problem med appen är väldigt bra. StoryJumper: Publish and read children's story books. ePals.
