A storyboard a story telling device used to visually “sketch out” the actions of a story that are told in a visual medium like animation, pictures, or felt pieces.
In this activity, students participated in a discussion about the cat in the hat using a story board.
By using a story board, that students explore aspects of a story they may not have noticed while reading it, such as how it develops, what’s missing, the use of language, how words and pictures work together, and what the story means to them.
For this activity, we read the Cat and the Hat while constructing our very own!
After each page was read, a student would bring their “piece” of the story board up for everyone to see.
They would then place it onto a flannel board to relay their part!
