Guided enquiry:“Summertime is the perfect season to enjoy sketching and doodling. Outdoor grilling and evening fire pits are memories we can enjoy. Story-telling creates those moments of silly giggles or “hold-your-breath” frights. For this week, let’s choose a summertime adventure… by creating our own stories for retelling!”
Next: Allow everyone 10-15 minutes to put their thoughts on paper. “What do they think would be a great silly summer story?”; “What might be the silliest part of the adventure?”; “What might be the scariest part of the adventure?“*Remind them to create a silly paragraph with a beginning-middle-end. When they retell the story they can always add more silliness.
Finally, ask them to doodle their silly summertime adventure…
Skill Discussion: “Let’s share what you’ve penned!” Encourage everyone to share… including your youngest. Spend a few moments sharing how you made choices when you were their age.
