Product Description
Try this unique method for inspiring creative writing. Included in this package is a sound collage of various sound effects and background themes. The sound collage itself was based off the story of Little Red Riding Hood, but students hear many different kinds of stories. It's better to let students interpret their own stories. This has be done as low as grade one, although it is better suited for upwards of grade three. There are a few short growling sounds that may frighten very young children. The sound collage is just a bit over three minutes long.


A few ideas for implementation of the activity:
-----------------------------------------------------------------

* Students listen to the sound collage with their eyes closed and then draw a picture of the story.

* Students listen to the sound collage again and write a creative story based on what they heard in the sound collage.

* Students write a descriptive passage on the setting of the story.


Included in the download:
------------------------------------
* A 3:02 length sound collage based on Little Red Riding Hood. File format: .mp3
* A few grade one samples of the activity
* A printable writing page with a box for a picture suitable for younger grades.
