At-Home Activities: 

Have fun with storytelling!

  • Photocopy a picture from a comic book (that is at your child's reading level). You can find great comic books and graphic novels at your local public library. If you can, copy it in colour, if that is unavailable, take a few minutes colouring in some of the panels with your child.
  • Cut the panels of the comic strip, so that they are individual boxes.
  • Turn them onto the table picture side down.
  • Flip over one panel at a time, trying to put the page back in order!
