The students will listen to a story, create a picture book and use the book to re-tell the story.

Target language: story-specific vocabulary

In this lesson, students will be encouraged to be imaginative and creative. After being introduced to some new vocabulary, the students will listen to a story. The teacher will lead the students to decide what the key events in the story are. Students will draw key scenes from the story and then combine their pictures to create a book. They’ll use the book to re-tell the story.
