Comic Writing July 6, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — caffeinatedteaching @ 9:49 PM

In first grade I do my best to provide many ways for students to write – especially reluctant writers!

One strategy I found that students enjoy is writing comics.  It is my opinion that they enjoy comic writing because it allows for creative drawing along with speech bubbles that appear as a small writing space.  What they don’t realize is they are telling stories through their pictures as well as their speech bubbles and their final product is a story with a beginning, middle and end!

This past school year I had a reluctant writer who really latched onto comic writing and he shared this site with me and I am passing it on to all of you. He was extending his comic writing at home, on the Internet, independently!  Love it!
