Tellagami #LaunchpadEDU - Playful Resources For Your Classroom We use Toontastic to improve students’ reading comprehension by creating animated summaries of the stories they read. It helps them retell, paraphrase, and sequence key events while considering how a character’s point of view shapes narrative. They have a great time and take a lot of pride in seeing their drawings and voices come to life onscreen. To start the activity, we choose a familiar book as a class before dividing up into groups of two or three students. Using the Toontastic Story Design Worksheet, students break the story into three simple events. How did the story begin? Next, each group chooses a character to narrate their summary and recreate each event from that character’s perspective. After completing their summaries, each group presents its cartoon to the class. Animating story summaries with Toontastic is fun and engaging for students, but it also helps them connect with literature beyond traditional book reports.
