Story Switcheroo: Final Projects
by Brave Writer instructor, Jen Holman
The new Brave Writer classroom design got to SHINE this spring with Story Switcheroo! While in the past, parents had to describe their kids’ creative endeavors and artwork, or include a clunky attachment, this session they got to include their pictures directly into their posts. It was a huge game-changer!
Here are some of the final projects:
A day in the life of Beast, from Beauty and the Beast. Here the characters from the castle (the coat stand, the clock, etc.) are all trying to make Beast presentable to impress Belle. But he keeps spilling soup on himself, etc. much to their dismay. Belle comes in at the end and sets him straight and tidy.
“Warning: Do not go in the Beast room ever”
A day in the life of Beast, by the younger sibling of the previous poster. Beast is trying to win Belle’s heart by performing magic tricks for her.
“8:00 Do whatever he wants.” lol
The bad witch climbing up Rapunzel’s hair to get into the tower. This student had made the tower, complete with little acorn bowls, cardboard chairs and tables, even artwork on the walls!
The characters of Moana (Maui, Moana and Heyhey) go for a picnic on the island after saving the day on their adventure.
A Cinderella ballroom scene. Note the chandelier!
Character study of pig from the Three Little Pigs. 🙂
Story Switcheroo is a whimsical journey through the world of fairy tales! In this online class, we create a mixed-up land for your kids to explore. They stretch their imaginations and write original stories from the building blocks of traditional fairy tales. We combine story elements, lighthearted writing exercises and imaginative play to introduce your child to a whole new magical world – of writing!
