Materials Needed

Plain Paper


You need to choose a simple book and read to them, but you don't show them the pictures. You can read part of the story or all of it. It depends on how long the story is and the age of the students.

After that, you will pass out the plain paper so the students can first draw their picture with a pencil, and then they can color it.

The students will draw a picture about the story they heard.


You can grade the students on drawing and if it illustrates the story they heard.

Your grading depends on the age of the students.
