One thing is absolutely clear...We love stories! We had a great time planning. First, we used the story map to identify the main parts of a story.
Here is our story map:
Title: The Lonely Snowman
Characters: Snowman- second graders
Setting: in winter- in the mountains
Plot: Beginning- Middle- End
Problem: The snowman is lonely.
We were divided into three groups to create our story: Station A, Station B, and Station C.
Station A was responsible for the beginning, Station B for the middle, and Station C for the ending. Then we sat in coopreative groups and took turns telling the story and writing it down. It's really fun to watch ourselves in this animated video dancing with the main character "the lonely snowman"!
