Poetry & Music

The powerful messages and themes in Kamishibai stories can be expressed and experienced through student-created poetry and music. As with the original stories, work can be done individually, in pairs or with the entire class.

Teachers have shared with us the poems students have written, inspired by Kamishibai stories. Some of these poems have also been set to music.

Kamishibai stories have also been dramatized by students composing theme songs for each of the main characters in the story. Whenever the character appears, the theme song is sung.
