Create Your Own Picture Book
Teaching students to sequence ideas and include story elements in their writing can be a daunting task. Using a Picture Book Maker can help students create a framework for their narrative stories, and they help students stay on track. They choose images (choices are limited which is helpful for some students) and they add text. The stories are relatively short (only about 5-6 pages each) and the products are professional looking. I recommend assigning specific story elements to address on each page (setting/introduction, rising action, climax, resolution, etc.). I think this is a fun, free resource that students can use to improve their narrative writing!
