Visual Storytelling & Cinderella

Angela Boyce-Thornton, Literacy, Ashley Park PreK-8 School

Final Unit (PDF)  Implementing Common Core Standards (PDF)


Storytelling gives me the opportunity to share experiences. Storytelling allows
the listener to question, gain information and speak about certain things. Storytelling is
used to: teach history, settle arguments, make sense of the world, satisfy a need for play
and entertainment, honor supernatural forces, and record the actions and characteristics of
ancestors for future generations. Storytelling is entertaining and energizing. Stories can
enhance or change perceptions. Stories have a beginning, middle and end. I will enhance
and promote language skills and literacy experiences during this unit.
