Activity Overview


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.


Beginning

A young boy looking for work gets hired by a man to go to paint a dozen billboards.


Middle

They work in the desert painting billboards. They only paint one word, ArrowStar, and a lady. The boy wants to paint more, like a mountain or even a cloud, but the man says no. They wonder what ArrowStar is.


End

A man in a white suit had a dream for ArrowStar: a roller coaster. The sign painter says dreams come in all different sizes and asks the boy to stay and continue working with him. The boy declines and goes off chasing his dream of becoming a painter.
