Comics are examples of multimodal texts most students are familiar with. Creating your own comics can be done as a fun extra task without a lot of criteria. On the other hand it’s possible to use these worksheets tied to specific criteria such as:
• The use of squares to play out a story
• Having a point or a punchline
• Using speech bubbles and onomatopoeia
• Image crop
• Action in the foreground and background
• Visual exaggeration
In the following taks some elements of the cartoons are already in place. These graphics and speech bubbles are meant to inspire the students in their work. For some these graphics will be helpful as an inspiration, and for others it will represent a challenge. There are a variety of different grids available, and a couple of empty templates are available at the end for free and undirected creation.

Students work in different paces, and some are eager to share whenever they are finished. Others will at that point have quite a bit of work left to do. The "I'm finished"-packs are created to occupy the early finishers. The purpose of the “I’m finished”-pack is that the teacher can simply print these worksheets and place them in a “finished”-folder. The students can quietly help themselves to a sheet while waiting for new tasks in the classroom. Students that work at a high pace aren’t left idle, and because of that won’t have time to be bored or become disruptive. Students that work at a slower pace are able to work in peace, without the distractions tied to others calling out “finished!”
