  19. 19. Comic Project for Kids <ul><li>I helped kids to create comic strips with brainstorming sessions using Imaginations - with words and picture stickers. Here's some tips to help: </li></ul><ul><li>Vocabulary: Students can learn to get involved in communication and language structure. </li></ul><ul><li>Use of words: Help them to create Balloons to fill in simple words of addressing and expressions like hi, oh, ouch, hmm...etc </li></ul><ul><li>Script : Talk to them about the picture sticker and help them imagine to create a script. The flow of the 3/4 panel story comes with their imaginative inputs </li></ul><ul><li>Message: The message selection can be social or anything that can be humor too. Simple ways for beginners to express words. </li></ul>
  20. 20. Comic Project for Kids Continued…. <ul><li>Story Continuation: Encourage kids to write a story first. Then write dialogues. This may also ease the making of comic strip process. </li></ul><ul><li>Pairing : Pair the children in a group of 2 or 4. Make it fun session. Let them share comic books, jokes or quotes. Engage them in group discussions to warm up before writing </li></ul><ul><li>Happy to Create Comics in simple way comes quite naturally 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. </li></ul>
