20 printable lessons. Each prompt provides students with four pictures that students use to tell a story. A picture of a mansion or castle or apartment or school or fire-station or skyscraper tells where the story takes place. A clock tells the time of day or night. A picture of a kid jumping rope or playing soccer or riding a bike or sitting with grandpa tells who the main character is. A picture of a centipede or spider or roly-poly or ladybug tells who comes into the story and interrupts the action. Your students’ job is to create a story using these four elements.
If you are doing a unit of insects or ecology or the environment, then you will love the insects and spiders in each lesson. If you are doing a unit on time, then you will be happy that each prompt has an analog clock as a prompt.
