Shared Book

This is an example of a shared book that your class can create collaboratively.

Start with a funny picture - which will be your ending (climax of the story). Ask children to predict what happened before this - start developing a plot together.
Give each child the responsibility of writing and illustrating each page of the book on paper.
An able student (or the teacher) can type text onto each slide and search for pictures or clipart to illustrate.
Once complete sound can be added as sound effects and links to turn pages at a mouse click. Students may even have their voice recorded reading the text and this be embedded onto each slide.
Or a low tech approach may be for students to read their own page when the class enjoys the finished product together!
A lot of fun combining creativity, imagination, oral, written and visual language and technology.

This downloadable handout is recommended for elementary school and kindergarten at Beginner (pre-A1), Elementary (A1), Pre-intermediate (A2) and Intermediate (B1) level. It is aimed at revising Adjectives in English, and is useful for improving your class' Writing skills. It features the vocabulary topic of Storytelling.
