Word bank comics are such a fun writing lab with kids of all ages.
1. To make the word bank, we took turns rolling an alphabet die (you can see it lurking around in the bottom picture). Then we each thought of the funniest/craziest/most unique word we could and wrote it on an easel. This part alone was super fun and helped get our creative juices flowing.
2. Then each kid used comic blanks (I print mine off from here) to make a zany comic using as many of the words from the bank as they can (or want to - sometimes, they end up going in a completely different direction, and that is ok).
The end results are always hilarious: Dracula trying to get a kiss from some fancy ladies, warnings not to step on cracks (to avoid breaking mothers' backs) and pick up Quidditch games with dogs (and there is usually some poop humor too).
My kids love drawing comics as much as they like reading them. We keep them all in page protectors in a binder and I can frequently find them on the couch rereading their work and laughing out loud.
Do your kids like comics? Do they draw them too? Any great resources to share?
