Creating Visuals

Myth: Story Listening is drawing a story.

Stage 1 of Story Listening uses drawing to create visuals by drawing them on the board during shared oral stories.  Later, students will slowly need fewer and fewer illustrations.  Eventually, they will prefer none at all. They will ask you to go faster than you can draw.

Dr. Beniko Mason informally that her intermediate students ask to hear a story once quickly with illustrations to get the gist; then they ask to hear it again without drawing.  Just ask your students what they prefer.
