I can gain a familiarity with and understanding of the basic components of the story sequence. I can collaborate with my peers to tell a story. I can create word lists to develop vocabulary. I can identify important components in the structure of the story (characters, setting, problem or conflict, solution, closing).
Kindergarten and First graders will create stories in a democratic collaborative process, using a scaffold designed from a familiar story pattern. Every person, students and teachers will participate in the decision making to create our own folktale. I will ask the teacher to scribe for us while I garner ideas from the students. Each student will make a contribution to the story by answering a question about some important part of the story sequence. Once the story is written I will read it aloud to the class. Later, we will type the story for the students to illustrate.

Suggestions: In schools, it is especially fun for us to ask the older students to do line drawings as illustrations for the story so that each Kindergartener or First grader gets a coloring book made from their story.
There is always room for other adults to participate. They are welcome and will be asked to make a contribution to the story.
