English Language Arts: Use Storyboards in Creative Writing

Activity idea: Have students take a picture of a blank storyboard worksheet using Seesaw’s built in camera. Find a storyboard worksheet here. Using Seesaw’s drawing tool, students should illustrate the outline of a short story, making sure to their story includes a distinct beginning, middle and end. Alternately (especially if you only have a few devices), students can draw and write on the storyboard worksheet and take a photo of the completed worksheet. 

Then students can use the voice recorder to narrate the story (or explain a central themes or character in their story) to practice their speaking skills. Alternatively, students can use the text annotation tool to write a short summary of their story.

Once posted to the journal, teachers, students and parents can listen to the audio recording and give feedback using text or audio comments.
