Story Telling

Today the ECE students worked to develop their sense of creative engagement using story-telling. Using a process called “building from clues” they worked in pairs to draw a story involving a dragon, a set of chopsticks, a boat and a little grey mouse. What story might you come up with using these clues? They spent time telling one another their stories and soon became very connected to the characters and the problems that the characters had to work through.

At the end of the story-making Kate read the picture book that inspired the activity: Chopsticks by Jon Berkely.

The students then thought of many ways that this story could be used to structure an 8 week curriculum combining children’s interests and questions that arise from the reading.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
