Five Card Flickr Story

In ECMP 355 today, we talked about digital storytelling!  I never realized that there were so many cool apps and web tools for storytelling.  We talked about puppet pals, iMovie on the iPad, Five Card Flickr stories and 6 word stories.  In a Five Card story, they ask you to choose five photos and then you write a short story, based on those five pictures.  If you want to make one for yourself, here’s the link: Five Card Flickr Story.  Here is the Five Card Flickr Story I made today in class:

Once upon a time, there was a cat named Bobby. Bobby was an inside cat and he was very curious about the outdoors. He longed to feel the outside air and to soak up the afternoon sun. One summer morning, he managed to sneak out while his owner was leaving for work. He ventured out to the garden that his owner maintained. He passed by many vegetables, flowers, plants, ect. After he passed by the tomatoes his owner was growing, he noticed two, small, strange looking objects. He looked closer and examined the swirled pattern on each of them. He swatted at one with his paw and a long, squishy animal passed through an opening in the object.

“Hey! What do you think you’re doing? I’m trying to nap here!,” exclaimed the creature.

“I’m sorry! I’ve never seen anything like you before! My name is Bobby and I’m a cat! Who are you?” Bobby asked.

“My name is Maurice and this is my wife, Glenda. We are snails!” Maurice answered.

“Cool! I’ve never heard of a snail before!” Bobby said.

Glenda woke up shortly after that and the three of them talked and became friends. Maurice and Glenda told Bobby all about snails and the other local creatures around. Bobby was fascinated and wanted to see more! He said farewell to his new snail friends and headed off to continue his adventure. He did not know where he was going or what he was going to see, and that excited Bobby even more! He passed by a house by a huge body of water. The house looked abandoned and creepy, so he did not dare come and explore. Bobby was definitely a scaredy cat! He ventured on and saw a field with a lot of trees. He saw a blow up slide and a soccer net, so he figured it was a place where children played. He walked across the field and noticed a new creature that he has never seen before. He seemed very scared.

“Hi, there! I’m Bobby and I’m a cat! Who are you?” asked Bobby.

“I’m G-g-george and I’m a cow,” he said shyly.

“Hello, George! What’s the matter?” Bobby asked in a concerned tone.

“I was playing hide and seek with my brothers and I went to far. I’m lost and I can’t find my farm!” George exclaimed. He started crying and Bobby felt very bad. Bobby had a very good sense of direction and knew he could help.

“I’ll help you find your home, don’t you worry!” Bobby reassured him.

As they walked, George told him all about life on the farm and the animals that live there. Bobby was intrigued by his stories and couldn’t wait to see his home. They ventured outside the forested area around the park and eventually found his farm.

“Thank you so much, Bobby! I hope to see you again, new friend!” said George.

Bobby ventured back home and he thought about all the new and exciting things he saw that day! He was so thankful to meet new friends and to learn about their homes and lifestyles! When Bobby arrived to his place, his owner was crying and he realized that she was worried sick about him! He felt really bad for leaving without permission, but he will never forget the adventure he went on that day!
