Embracing Imagination with Rocks

From Classroom Teacher to Author, & Illustrator, I come to embrace imagination through storytelling. Embracing Imagination with Rocks * Diann shows her rocks painted to represent characters and places * Talks about each rock to stir the imagination * With the fun of talking about rocks the kids do not even realize they are learning about the parts of a story, beginning, middle and end

Sharing and imagining with the author

  • Diann Shows a variety of Rock Characters and Places and the kids start brainstorming ideas
  • The young authors then vote on which characters and places to include in their story
  • The young authors vote on what the story is about
  • Diann starts the story, and one at a time the kids add to the story one sentence at a time,
with Diann guiding them along through the process.

Embracing Imagination with Rocks = Storytelling
