PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Li’l Stories teaches young children to express themselves through visual, spoken and written storytelling. Structured as a classroom activity, Li’l Stories guides students through the collaborative process of creating and sharing a narrative. The system successfully teaches English Language Arts and fosters communication, creative thinking, problem-solving and self-expression.

The framework consists of two activities.
1. Creating Stories: Using the Li’l Stories storyboards, students first define their story elements, or inputs, then they create the story individually or in groups. They do this through drawing and writing. They learn about story structure, story elements and sequencing.
2. Sharing Stories: After creating their stories, students tell them in the classroom. This shows them how to articulate and communicate their ideas. They practice public speaking, getting feedback and responding to it.
You can combine these activities in different ways—it can be a short story creation and sharing activity or the beginning of a longer unit where you can have students turn their visual stories into written narratives or develop them further into plays, puppet shows or films.

The Li'l Stories storyboard:
Artists, designers and filmmakers often use storyboarding as a framework to develop linear storytelling. Similarly, the act of storyboarding helps children structure their narratives and organize their thinking.

This Li'l Stories storyboard is for 1st to 4th graders. It has 3 input, 9 story and 2 disruption boxes:
3 input boxes: Content covered in your class or at home can be used to inspire characters, settings and plots of stories created by students. You can define these elements or let the students come up with their own.
9 story boxes: Students can retell stories they’ve read or heard in class, or create new stories around specific topics or story structures like historical narratives, pourquoi tales, or fairy tales.
2 disruption boxes: As an option, you can use the “disruption” fields to have students add characters or change the settings of their stories. These can be defined by you or chosen by the students. It’s a great way for them to learn about story elements.

• Print the storyboard on an 11” by 17” sheet of paper.
• The PDF includes a 2nd page with instructions, activity ideas and tips.
• Use 2″ by 2″ Post-its if you’d like students to be able to edit their stories.
