I gave up on the idea of making a Wordtoon out of the word sing because it just didn’t seem like it would work.
I remember saying to my oldest son Calvin, ” Yep this is one that just won’t work”…Famous last words!
Although a week later I tried again while on the bus and it actually started to shape up so I kept at it during the next few days on the bus to and from Uni. What you see is about 2 hours worth of thinking and scribbling to get to the end result.
Although I have an actual court order to never sing….because I truly am THAT bad, I’m please to say that I can now do the ‘sing’ Wordtoon.
I see the bus ride as a valuable and enjoyable time as I have started to build up a collection of great new Wordtoons to fill a another book. I don’t expect to finish the new book to be ready until 2011 some time and so will keep most of the new ones a secret until then. But some times I just can’t wait to share a new one like this.
This is one of my new favorite Wordtoons and will be available as a step by steps worksheet in the second book of full word Wordtoons and in powerpoint slides for teachers to use in the classroom, although anyone should be able to remember how to do it after watching the last part of the video a few times.
