Choose one of the pictures to distribute to the children: Animals and a Cross Fireworks and a Picnic Frog and Alien Lady and Leprechaun Penguin and Mice Snake and Caterpillar Use full page or half page templates to print your story. You can do a cooperative project by having one student act as author and another as illustrator.
Having a Picture Story Board for the author to give to the illustrator can help the process.
The picture can be a personal photograph, a clipping from a magazine or just about any image that that has the potential to inspire.
What activities do you think Hulk would be good/bad at? He could totally relax and put to the back of his mind all of the things that had made him feel stressed during the week.
Students can write stories to go along with these pictures.
Each worksheet includes a fun cartoon picture, and a few sheets of lined writing paper.
The children can then read each others works during quiet reading time.
You can expand the project by having the children write "book reviews" of each others books.
