The Boy Who Cried Wolf

This week, you and your children will read The Boy Who Cried Wolf and make a comic strip. Writing a comic strip will help you learn about dialogue and conversations that characters have with each other.

What you need:

  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Crayons
  • Pre-made Comic Strip template and Comic Characters (here)

Step 1

Click to read The Boy Who Cried Wolf.  You can find this book in your Footsteps2Brilliance app under Level 3 (Blue) in the Aesop’s Fables series. Read the book with your child, then complete the activity.


Step 2

Print a copy of the comic strip template and the comic characters. Color the characters you will use in your comic strip.

Step 3

Think about the conversation that the boy and the villager will have and write the dialogue in the bubbles on each square of the comic strip.

Step 4

Cut out the characters and glue them in each square to match the dialogue.

Step 5

Read your comic strip aloud with a grown up and talk about why it is important to tell the truth.
