early primary storytelling

The early primary classes (divisions 10, 11 and 12) have been doing some storytelling in the library. After reading the Curious George stories, we discussed the different elements of a story - characters, setting and plot. First, the students each created their own character puppets.

And then we discussed setting - where the story takes place. The students used their character puppets and various natural materials to develop story ideas based on the setting they created.

As a final step, we discussed what would happen in the story - the plot. Was there some sort of adventure or journey? Was there a problem that needed to be solved?

Here's a little video compilation of students in divisions 10, 11 and 12 doing some storytelling:

We will be using our puppets in some new settings...coming soon!
