"Reading" Art - Telling the Story Part One

On our final day with the fabulous Melanie Layne,
The kids dove in even deeper reading the artwork.
They began writing and telling the stories 
that they imagined about the artwork.
They learned about 
6 Word Stories.


Then they set about choosing a piece of art to work on with a partner.

They worked together to write 6 word stories,
and then combined them into a poem,
telling the story of the piece of art as they saw it.

Here are a few of their masterpieces...

On Friday they tried this out on their own,
getting their own piece of artwork,
and writing a poem to tell the story.

Come back tomorrow to see what they came up with.

And don't forget about that fabulous $15 Frenzy over at Educents!


  1. What a grand experience your kids had! I'd have loved to be a fly on the wall throughout the whole process.

  2. What a great way to get kids writing! I would love to try this!
