After Time Tales

After Time Tales by Laura Botsford

Preface

     The secret was not far away perhaps you may have heard it yourself?

   Not long ago, right around the time you born, a light filled the world once more. You see, it had been a long time coming, for there was a time when the world was dark and plagued with an awful ruler. His name was Yicca the Awful and he was known to rob people of their joy and leave them helpless. He had a league of many angry and bothersome people called the Angerdahs who sought out happy people and made them all grouchy, uncaring and hopeless.

   This was until the great day on Harp Wind Hill, when the people of Emeria all joined hands and prayed. They put their hands up in the air and light beams came straight out of their palms. Their mouths opened and they spoke only loving words. Each word spilled over the mountain and out into the air until the Angerdahs melted into pools of aqua sea drops and many fish came to spur them out to sea, where they are adrift to this day.

   The people of Emeria rejoiced, they gathered flowers and put them in a basket of light and sent them to Moorea, the gypsy king, who in exchange promised them all wishes of their own. And because they knew how to make and believe, they are coming true.

   Travel with Emma and Brody as they are called to adventures from the Land Of Emeria to help bring the knowledge of Make and Believe to other lands. Watch how they defeat the Angerdahs and Yicca the Awful. Erase your fears and gather your love into a vision of how you too can make the world a better place to live in.

Imagine What Creative Writing Slides

Free writing slides for your class to get the juices flowing.

Posing questions and spark the imagination. Starting with a power point slide show is very effective. The age group for these slides is K through 5th grade.

Oftentimes music will aid in the imaginative process as well. Chose something that is in kinship for the project. Fast and action packed for adventure stories, slow and dreamy for fairy tales. Writing to classical songs can also spur the student to dramatize in a cinematic style.

Each class seems to set on a beat that appeals to them. So you might want to play a couple of songs and let them choose what the stories will be about and add them into the finished on line book or oral reading in a production.

I have even taken instrumentals and wrote lyrics for them to sing. In our Portland Elementary School Spring musical, Whispering Spring,  I wrote lyrics to Secret Garden’s, Frozen in Time; which by the way I am honored to say they liked very much.    There is much more I can share with you or your students if you are interested in a United Imaginations Workshop, feel free to visit my website to see all the wonderful things we can create together or contact me at laurabotsford@yahoo.com      website: Laura Botsford AIE
