1. Begin by discussing the elements of a story with your students. This can include characters, setting, plot, and conflict.
2. Have students brainstorm ideas for their own story. Encourage them to think creatively and come up with unique ideas.
3. Once students have a story idea, have them create illustrations using digital drawing tools. This can include creating characters, backgrounds, and other elements of the story.
4. Using storybook creation software, have students combine their story and illustrations into a digital storybook. Encourage them to use different features such as text, audio, and animations to bring their story to life.
5. Once the storybook is complete, have students edit and revise their work. This can include checking for spelling and grammar errors, as well as making sure the story flows well.
1. Have students share their completed storybooks with the class. Encourage them to explain their story and the choices they made in creating their illustrations and using digital tools.
2. Have students work in pairs or small groups to provide feedback on each other's storybooks. This can include offering suggestions for improvement or pointing out areas where the storybook was particularly effective.
Assessment will be based on the completed storybook and the student's ability to effectively use digital tools to create illustrations and bring their story to life. Students will also be assessed on their ability to write and edit a cohesive story.
