I’m teaching the kids to tell stories. We start with “Once upon a time…” and we finish with “The end”. Mostly, they just reiterate plot-lines they’ve seen in shows or books or movies, but their toddler language is often in top form! Here’s some stories they told today, and some accompanying artwork:

By E, 3:

Once upon a time, there were some Fraggles. They were in a dark place, but there was lots of sparkles. The sparkles said, “Help! We need your help!” Then the Fraggles woke up. Then they went back to sleep. The end.

PART 1 –

Once upon a time, there was a girl named Matilda. Her door was closed. So she opened the door and let her in. The end.

PART 2 –

Once upon a time, there was a girl named Matilda. Her door was closed. Then they ate food. Then they had drinks. Then they had rice and sauce. Kierkegaard was there. They liked the letter “N”. No, “E”. The door was opened. They just let Matilda in. The end.

Once upon a time, there was Bert. He could fly. Wembley said, “You can fly through the sky.” You can fly  through the sky. You can fly through the sky. You can fly through the sky. The end.

By A, 2:

Once upon a time, there was a duck. The duck said, “Quack Quack Quack Quack Quack.” It runs from a monster. It gets the duck and ate it too. I want to draw it now. It’s the end.
