Students decide on what they think the important parts in the text are, and categorize them into the beginning, middle, and end of the story. Having students decide on the beginning, middle, and end will help them break up the text, and make it easier to choose one or two main events to create. Students can plan their ideas with a partner or individually and decide what main parts they would like to add to their storyboard.
Poppleton in Winter has three different tales in it. Students can create a summary storyboard for each tale. The example shown is for the story titled, “The Sleigh Ride”.
Poppleton calls all his friends to ask them to go on a sleigh ride.
Everybody is busy baking yummy treats so they can not go on a sleigh ride. Poppleton feels upset.
Poppleton's friends come over and surprise him for his birthday (which he forgot). They eat treats and go for a midnight sleigh ride.
