Summer SAVY 2018: Session 2, Day 4 – Story Gardening (Rising 3rd and 4th)
Students discussed graphic novel/comic conventions and continued to work on their stories. Some chose to transpose their stories into a graphic novel format and others used a chapter book format. They also reviewed examples of flap copy from published books and broke them down to look at the way they were composed. Finally, students revised their flap copy into final form and added illustrations to their stories.
*Ask your child to explain how panels, dialogue, and onomatopoeia may be used in graphic novels or comics.
*Have your child explain what s/he included in her/his flap copy to make the reader want to read her/his book.
