Ms. Flynn's literacy group (Alec, Ben, Molly, Alex, Reece, Nicole, Manny, and Jeannie) have begun a comic book study in literacy. We are looking at what makes comics memorable, how to make characters stand out, and how to choose characters. We are also comparing different authors' styles who have written about the same character, like Spiderman. Students will be creating their own comics during literacy and publishing them at the end with their own artwork.
At home, if you receive a newspaper, go through comics with your child. If they find one they enjoy, feel free to have them bring it in to share.
