Children love reading stories so why not have them make their very own story? This package allows children to make and write their very own stories!
This package contains over 250 story cards. The primary purpose of these story cards is for students to make their own stories based on the word(s) on the cards! Each story card shows a picture and relevant word(s). These cards feature over 250 different pictures, including community helpers, food, transportation, etc.
Children pick from these cards to make their own story. As they pick new cards, they will add new elements to their stories. They must incorporate the word(s) on their card in their story. This game challenges students’ creativity and imagination . It improves their skills to link ideas, sequence and develops their vocabulary.
There are 2 ways that students can make their own story dependent on the teacher’s preference. You can either use the cards for a story making session that involves the whole class building a story together or students working individually.
- Over 250 Story Cards
- 2 Stories
- 2 Story Template Versions (including a make-your-own-book template)
1) Read the story books first (‘My Happy Dream’ and ‘Santa forgot Christmas?’) so that the students have an idea of what they are expected to do.
2) Explain to them that they will be making stories based on story cards. They should aim to incorporate the word on their card in their story.
Individual Story Making
1) Print out all the sheets of Story cards.
1) Hand out the sheets of story cards randomly. Each sheet contains 6 story cards; you can also print them black and white.
2) Hand out either the write-your-own story worksheet or the story book template. For the story book template, you can print out several pages of the ‘Then…’ template if you prefer students creating a longer story.
3) Ask your students to use the worksheet or story book template to write their own story! Ask them to share their own stories afterwards!
Group Story Making
1) Print and cut out all the story cards and laminate them. Keep the story cards in a jar or box.
1) First, the teacher picks a story card from the jar/box. He/ She starts off the story making session by saying a sentence incorporating the word on his/her card. Eg. the teacher picks a ‘panda’ card’, she can start off by saying “Once upon a time, I met a talking panda.” Then the story can be continued by another student, and another student, etc.
2) Pass the jar around the class, each student should pick out 1 card each time. They should attempt to continue the story.
