Laminate the pages. Cut out the clip art. You might want to do this as a story time activity first. Tell the children during story time that they are going to create their own story. Tell the children that it is going to be a Imagination Land story. Show the children a few pieces of clip art; then ask one child to choose a clip art. If the child chooses a tree, say the story is going to take place in the forest. Then ask another child to choose a clip art. This time choose clip art that will be a character. If the child chooses a super hero, say that the story is going to have a superhero in the forest. Lastly, ask another child what will happen. If the child chooses an ice cream, say that the superhero is eating ice cream in the forest. Keep asking children one by one to add to the story. Hold the laminated pieces of clip art up for the children to see as you help them tell their story.
Next, put the clip art into three small boxes; one box for setting, one box for characters, and one box for plot. Place the boxes on a table in your literacy center. Show the children the storyboard. Show them how to use it. Explain that the first part is for where they want the story to take place, the second box is for the characters, and the third box is for what they want to happen in the story. Show the children that they may place clip art on each section. They may have planets on the setting part, they may have pirates and superheros on the character part, they may have camping things or treats, etc on the plot part, and so on. After the children understand how to use the board, let them place whichever pieces of clip art they choose on the board to create their own stories on their own. You may place Velcro on the board and the clip art if you wish, or you may just let the children lay the clip art on the board. Personally, I would just let them lay the clip art on the board. I also wouldn’t worry about cutting out the clip art out perfectly; I would leave some white. The clip art is on the small side, and this should be a helpful product for you! Don’t make it too tedious!
Seven storyboard pages included.
