How can we make stories come alive for kids in our community?
reading, narratives, fluency, comprehension, storytelling, fables, folktales
Students build their reading fluency and comprehension skills as they create engaging video productions of fables and folktales from diverse cultures. Working in teams, students read selected stories, create storyboards, and write Reader’s Theater–style scripts as they plan and produce their dramatic video readings for a class Storytime Channel.
The timing for this project may vary greatly depending on how many genres and cultures are addressed as well as the amount of time students spend in workshop rotations.
