I think this is a really great idea and I remember doing this as a kid as well. I would draw a story and tell it to my mom and she would write on the pages what I said. I remember when I learned to read that I loved reading something I had written! Having kids begin with pictures and then writing from there can be a great way to engage them in the writing process. I think drawing the pictures first is also super helpful as the students are able to see their ideas already down on paper and just translate them into words. It sounds like you had a really fun time!

      That is absolutely amazing! I agree that art is a great avenue to get students learning about stories and writing. Pictures most of the time lead to words. I think it's great that you gave Bobby the... more
