In this activity, 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.
The storyboard above shows one example for the beginning, middle, and end, but you could set a number of frames for the students to use based on the ability of the student, or length of the text.
Pandora and Seabold live solitary lives until a storm brings them together. Pandora saves Seabold and they become friends.
Seabold and Pandora enjoy each other's company and work together to tend to the lighthouse. One day they rescue three mice from a box floating aimlessly in the ocean.
Seabold, Pandora, and the three mice are happy. They are not lonely anymore; they are a family.
