Storyboard Text

  • Here Helen.
  • Oh dear, What are we to do with the child? She cant hear us or see us! How do we help her? Poor thing!
  • I will warn you Mrs.Sullivan, Helen is a bit wild and you seem a little young to teach a deaf-blind child...
  • Thank you Mrs. Keller but I think I can handle it.
  • Helen is a baby and has a deating fever. The doctor just left curing Helen acute congestion of the stomach and brain. While Keller was escorting the doctor to his buggy, Kate was talking to Helen when she saw Helen wasnt looking at her. She quickly screamed for Keller and told him the news. So he snaps his finger in front of Helen's face and she didn't blink. They now realized Helen is deaf and blind.
  • You Devil!
  • Six years later, Helen's parents are having trouble controling Helen's behavoir and only becaue they pity her so much. Whenever Helen did somthing bad or threw a tantrum they gave her sweets to prevent any more problems. Now Helen is very spoiled because of all the sweets for doing somthing bad.. Keller thinks Helen needs discipline but, Kate doen't want to hurt Helen so, they follow Kate's plan to give Helen sweets when she's throwing a tantrum or doing somthing bad.
  • Cake. C-A-K-E This means a word and the word stands for the thing
  • Since Helen's parents are having much trouble disciplining Helen they hire Annie Sullivan as a teacher for the deaf and blind. Annie is half blind herself, is young, and very opinonated. The Kellers have their doubts in Annie but, Annie knows that she can not only control Helen's behavoir but also teach Helen to use sign language.
  • Wah-Wah
  • Oh Helen!
  • It's Annie's first day on the job and she gets locked in her own room a by Helen. Who soon runs out side to drop the key in the backyard waterpump. (The pump repesents Annie, she can unlock Helen. The key repesents Helen who hides away the key in Annie.) Annie realizes this will be harder than expected. A few days later Helen is normally helping herself to everyone's plates at breakfast which Annie is not acustomed to. Annie decides to try her best to stop Helen from eating off of everyone's plate. Soon the argument leads to a battle of the wills. Annie escorts everyone out of the room so that Helen's parents won't give sweets. Hours later They come out of the wrecked dining room but there is a folded napkin on the wrecked table. Annie claimed she had got Helen to fold her napkin.
  • After almost giving up, Annie hears the Kellers saying thry were going to send Helen to an asylum if Annie hadn't come. She instintly wants to stay remembering that she had once lived in an asylum and how her brother died there. She doent want Helen to have that same horrific experience. So, she ask's the Kellers if she could stay in the little garden house (where the Keller's were talking) with Helen alone for two weeks. The Kellers approve and while in the garden house Annie teaches Helen sign language, though Helen doesn't know the finger spelling has meaning Annie still tries.
  • After a very long time of trying to get Helen to understand that a word has meaning it all finally pays off. Helen remembers when she was six months old she said Wah-wah (water) she does her best to talkand after she does, shhe puts her hands under the flow of water at the water pump and reaches her hand out to Annie for her to spell "water" into her hand then Helen runs around her surroundings waiting every now and then for Annie to finger spell. Then Annie calles Helen's parents over to show them that she did it! Se got Helen to understand.
