Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

Storytelling puts the whole brain to work. It supports creativity, empathy, sequencing and story structure knowledge. Drawing improves visual literacy skills, vocabulary, and overall comprehension. Suggested Scaffolds for ELLs: -Provide a paragraph frame to help students organize their story with a beginning, middle, and end. -Pre-teach vocabulary for telling a story, such as transition words. -Provide a photograph for students to respond to instead of a drawing. CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.SL.K.6 Speak audibly and express thoughts, feelings, and ideas clearly.
