A Werewolf Story by Lee and Freddie

I would like to share a story created and narrated by Lee during morning play on Friday. I used my iPhone to record the story as he told it. In the background you can hear other children playing.

During lunch play Lee and his friend Freddie stayed inside and as they listened to the recording they discussed what they should draw. It was fabulously to sit back and watch two children who often find the writing process difficult work together to plan how they would present Lee’s story.

They were hugely excited when I told them I would turn the work they did into a movie. Later in the afternoon we again used my iPhone to take photos of their pictures and import them into iMovie.

I imagine they will be very pleased with the end result.

Working with these two boys made me think that next term I may introduce a Story Creating club to run during our Friday afternoon Clubs.

    Hi Folks,
    Nice story, I particularly like the way the drawing show the change between man and werewolf. I also love the atmospheric howling, very spooky!

    Wow boys! I am so impressed! I loved the story – it was really atmospheric and the sound effects really added something special to it. I also thought the pictures were really well drawn – you worked really hard to get them just right. You should be very proud of yourselves – Well done!!! Keep writing – I can’t wait to watch or read your next story.

    Excellent work! This story is really brilliant boys – you really need to write more stories for people to enjoy. I liked the subject you chose: it really went well with your illustrations and, because I was watching it late at night, I found it really spooky too.
    I hope you continue to come up with story ideas and record them because I would love to hear more.

    Your werewolf story was fantastic! You must have worked hard at getting the pictures right. The sound effects really added something to your story. I read your story in the dark and my knees were knocking.

    Can’t wait to hear your next story!

    Boys, I have not heard any of your work before but this short narrated film was splendid. The pictures you drew were perfect for the scarey plot you described. I wonder what happened to the werewolf next?
    I look forward to seeing more of your work šŸ˜‰

    […] Mary Farmer (@ebd35) showed some great films made by a couple of boys in her class who really don’t like writing, but loved telling a story to accompany their drawings – using an iPhone to record the audio and take photos of the drawings, then putting them together in iMovie. These can be viewed here. […]
