Practicing Dialogue & Production of Writing through Making Comics
Hello Friends~
Welcome back to the Primary Pack! It's Dianna here with you today from, Sassy, Savvy, Simple Teaching.
I'm here today to share with you a resource that will get students actively engaged & practicing the skill of writing dialogue & producing a piece of writing! The bonus is, it is FREE & you can use it as an informal assessment of student application of the standard! Don't forget the bonus of technology integration! TRIPLE BONUS!

Yes, you do need computers to use this. So if you only have a set for a small group, you could integrate this activity through your Writing Center [or any center] during your ELA block. You could also make use of it in your Computer Lab as well.

Standards Covered: 
Make Beliefs Comix: 

Click HERE to visit the home page & look around!

Here is a screenshot of the home page. You can add this to your Symbaloo or book mark it on each computer. When you arrive at the home page click enter here to get started, you can also watch a demo & you can see how to get the app for your tablet. ---->

Here is a screenshot of the main page. You can do so many things!!! The kids will LOVE BEING CREATIVE & you will LOVE MEETING THE STANDARDS!!!

Here's a few things students can do at this screen:
  • Name thier Comix & add themself as the author.
  • Use a free printable to write in the dialogue.
  • Choose the # of panels they want in their comic.
  • Choose the character[s], backgrounds & objects they want in each panel.

  • AND MORE!!!!!!!!!!

Lastly, when students are done they can save, print & email the final version for teachers to display & grade!!!

This is a fabulous way to integrate technology with the writing standards that is engaging for students along with a great sample of student work to show proof of mastering the standards!!!!
