Comic Project for Kids I helped kids to create comic strips with brainstorming sessionsusing Imaginations - with words and picture stickers. Here's sometips to help: Vocabulary: Students can learn to get involved in communicationand language structure. Use of words: Help them to create Balloons to fill in simple wordsof addressing and expressions like hi, oh, ouch, hmm...etc Script : Talk to them about the picture sticker and help themimagine to create a script. The flow of the 3/4 panel story comeswith their imaginative inputs Message: The message selection can be social or anything thatcan be humor too. Simple ways for beginners to express words. 20. Comic Project for KidsContinued. Story Continuation: Encourage kids to write a story first.Then write dialogues. This may also ease the making ofcomic strip process. Pairing : Pair the children in a group of 2 or 4. Make it funsession. Let them share comic books, jokes or quotes.Engage them in group discussions to warm up beforewriting Happy to Create Comics in simple way comes quitenaturally when motivation follows to spark creative juices.Kids are at their best only when they are ready to Do It.Forcing them to engage in activities gain no results. 21. www.kidsfreesouls.comNEWSPAPER FOR KIDS WITH RESOURCES FORPARENTS AND TEACHERS
