It’s time to turn your stories and reading responses into graphic novels! This download includes 16 pages in total of graphic novel or comic pages for two book sizes:
8 x 8 and 8.5 x 11.
To ensure the 8x8 prints the right size for your books, set the printing percentage to between 93 and 95%! That should take care of the right margins. :)
While writing is so important and valuable to our students' growth as learners, other means of expression are equally as important. Using graphic novel templates you can give students the opportunity to show their thinking and ideas in a different way.
To support my students in meeting grade-level expectations, I conduct small groups and mini-lessons to develop the craft of writing and invite them to publish their drafts in various formats, including graphic novels or comic book styles. I can engage them in the writing process AND showcase their unique talents as authors and illustrators.
You can also think outside the box and have students use them in other content areas--science, math, social studies--and of course as part of responding to reading or adapting and ending or chapter.
Please let me know if you have any trouble or need a variation on this. I'm happy to help.
