Images and Imagery

DD 8
Two of my girls are reading Charlotte in Giverny as part of a MBtP unit and the book is full of many famous impressionist paintings which form the basis for much of the story. Following this example and using famous works of art as inspiration, the girls each wrote a short description of the story behind the artwork.

If your child is particularly interested in writing, the website Storybird offers a fun way to explore the connection between pictures and words. Through collaborative storytelling, children are able to express their thoughts with both images and words.  These stories can be shared, saved or printed. Children can work with friends, family, or fellow Storybird authors. Even very young children can see their stories come to life. Best of all - it's free!
