I CAN identify and discuss details about the characters, settings, and major events in a story I have just listened to. I CAN create artwork or poetry based on that story. I CAN distinguish my point of view from that of the characters in the story.
During both days of this two-day residency, students will hear a lively telling of a folktale and then use critical thinking to identify the narrative and/or the characters in the story just heard; after this, they will create their own drawn or written version of part of the story. During this time, students will communicate their ideas with one another. K-2 graders will use drawing to recreate the story; 3-4 graders will write a group-composed monologue from the point-of-view of one of the characters of the story. Student volunteers will read aloud sections of the class-written monologue.
There are opportunities for up to 5 caregivers to participate in the K-2nd grade sessions by handing out art materials and encouraging student artists. There are opportunities for up to 5 caregivers to participate in the 3rd to 4th grade sessions by recording students' suggestions/ideas and participating in the choral reading of the monologues.
