Lights, Camera, Acting Out Literature

My students need a storyboard and storytelling kits to retell stories they know.

My Students

Comprehension can be one of the most difficult parts of reading. My students love to read stories and would love to act them out with storyboard pieces. The storyboard pieces give them a tool to begin acting out stories before we begin plays in first grade.

My students are first graders from a public school in North Dakota.

They love to read and act out stories. Students are expected to retell stories on our reading assessments in the beginning and end of the year. One of our Power Learning Targets for First Grade is "uses comprehension strategies".

My Project

I am requesting a storyboard and storyboard pieces that will help the students act out stories. I have also requested some bins to keep them neat and organized so students can use them for many years. My students will learn about characters, and retelling. These tools will also help boost the students' comprehension skills. Storyboard pieces may also help shy students to have a tool to help them retell a story.

By donating to our class project, you will help my students retell stories time after time.

It will help to bring a love of the literature we read in our classroom. Thank you for your consideration of this project.
