As learners we are often restricted by the confines of curriculum and it is so important that we also take the time to explore and nourish our creativity and imagination. As humans, we do not move, think or speak in straight lines. As individuals, we each see things from our own unique perspective. Today we are going to using the charming book 'Harold and the Purple Crayon' by Crockett Johnson as a tool for letting our imagination roam freely.
You will need a piece of paper and a pencil for this activity. If you have a purple one, grab that, but if not then any colour will do.
As you listen to me read the story, I want you to draw what you hear. Upload a copy of your picture when it is complete and we will compare them all. I guarantee that despite all hearing the same story, all of your pictures will look completely different.
Create your own story. You might like to write a different version of the Harold story using the picture start below.
Or you can make a mark on your page and simply begin to draw, telling a story as you go.
