Script Carefully plan what will be said in your story. Have students write this out exactly, including directions or ideas for scenes. This is a great time to talk about reading plays with their stage directions, such as Shakespeare.
Storyboard A storyboard is a loose drawing of your stories series of scenes. It is not meant to be a work of art. Just get your ideas down and work out the details. Old calendars work well. Each square provides a place to draw each scene. A blank 6 slide PowerPoint printed in handout view (6 slides to a page) makes a good storyboard.
Characters, Props and Background Characters do not have to be made with clay. Any small figures will work. Be creative! Props make it more 3 dimensional. Backgrounds can be made quickly using file folders and old calendars.
Lights, Camera, Action Once everything is set-up, you are ready to take your pictures. Follow your storyboard as you read the script. At least one picture per second
Choose one to use as your animator. In PowerPoint make a new photo album and rehearse timings to make them only show for a second or less In Movie Maker go to Tools>Options>Advanced Set timings to PowerPoint or Movie Maker
