Shape Stories with Bonnie Kelso

Grades: 1-3

Shape Stories” is a two-part lesson. In the first part we will create simple cut-out shapes and explore various compositions with them. By drawing on the imagination we will begin to create characters and potential story ideas. In the second part we will storyboard three frames each representing the beginning, middle, and ending of our story. This lesson is designed to inspire children to further explore writing and illustrating their own stories.

Materials: Color construction paper or found paper, white copy paper, scissors, pencil, white school glue or glue stick, common household objects used as drawing templates
