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.
