Comics are a great way to reinforce the writing process and to check for understanding throughout the school year. It also gives kids a creative way to apply their learning in all subject areas. Students organize their learning with illustrations the same way that they would layout a paragraph or story. There are three templates included in this resource to differentiate instruction! One template has blank panels. Another template features six panels labeled to help a student with drawing sequence of events and last, there is a 6-panel template with word balloons and narration boxes already included. I usually compare comic panels to parts of a paragraph. I tell students that the comic needs to have a title panel, at least three detail or sequence of events panels and a
closing panel. This keeps students focused and it allows them to make connections between their words and illustrations.
