This writing activity allows students to create a story using short sentences in the present tense. They must write eight sentences of at least four words and include a drawing which describes that sentence. (At this point in the instructions, I always make sure to tell my students that I don't expect Monet-level artistic skill and that stick figures are completely acceptable.) I include an example sentence which you can choose to use as the first sentence of the story or just as a model.
This activity can be adapted to beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels of French by changing the length of each sentence and the tense or prompt of the story. Feel free to change it to fit your needs!
Merci en avance!
