This Activity Plan 5-6: Let's Create Stories! lesson plan also includes:
Students examine wordless books and other pictures in order to learn how the teacher "reads a picture" to tell a story about it. In this early writing instructional activity, students then create their own picture for story telling by painting. Students tell the story of their picture, and the teacher records it on a sentence strip. Next, students' artwork and stories are put on display for others to see.
