Instructions: The teacher gathers the children in a circle and starts the story with an idea. A story starter would be: "Let’s make up a story about a visit to the beach….we’ll call it "Mandy’s day at the beach." This story can be written with the weekly theme in mind. Solicit ideas from the group with questions like: What did Mandy see at the beach?, How were people dressed? What was the weather like? What did Mandy do for fun? Collect the ideas on the paper in words or with simple drawings…or both! Decide on four or five sentences for the story and let the kids decide which comes next. Write the story on a 8 1/2 X 11 piece of paper…leave room at the top for pictures. Photocopy the story for each child and let them illustrate their story.
