I’ve had these simple comic strip printable templates on my site for a while now but this summer we are using them in a more creative way! We will be cutting these apart and pasting them into a blank notebook to create our own graphic novel! OR they do make fabulous (but pricier) blank comic book/graphic novel style books that you can purchase all pre-made. Just click on each version below to view them:
My son always had a difficult time, however, just coming up with his own story if you handed him a blank comic strip so I also included simple “buzzword” cut-outs at the bottom of our printable version to encourage kids in their creative story telling! Just cut off the bottom strip and paste whichever cut-outs you want into your comic strips! PLUS one page is a “Build Your Own Story” page to draw one complete scene! You can then have the child write about their story on notebook paper to go with his/her drawing! Please share this with your friends, teachers, and of course kids!! PIN IT HERE!
