Problem Solving little books and Posters

We have been working on problems and solutions this week. During Daily 5 time, one optional activity was to create a problem-solving picture book. 

I used six index cards and bound them together. 

I am thinking of having my class write problem-solving stories, so I thought this would be a great lesson to see if the group may be interested in this kind of writing. 

They were allowed to make up parts of their story, and the kids loved that.
The first page had to be the character, next setting, problem, and solution.
They could add pages too. You can see below an example from two students.

I love the action in the pictures and how the child made the sun screaming!!
The main characters are getting chased by snakes.

This story has to do with a mushroom video game.

The video person died...the child told me when your person dies it flips upside down.

He has not added to this page, but I love how he knew to keep the setting the same.

We worked together in small groups retelling problems and solutions to Rosemary Wells books.

Drawing Problem and Solutions Posters
 The groups used the pictures to retell the story. All of the books used have been read aloud to the class.  They had to decide what was important to include in their posters.
