Story Pyramid of ME

I was looking through various blogs the other day and saw one whose description mentioned that every life is a story waiting to be told.  Hmm...a story huh?

So the teacher in me came out in full force... I often used a Story Pyramid to help my older students remember a story we've read.

Here is the Story Pyramid of my life:

caring, Christian
always near water
What's this life about?
Raised in very small town.
Married a friend from high school.
Masters Degree in Special Ed and Reading
Beautiful healthy baby girl, what more is needed?

That was kind of fun!  I think (if I ever teach older kids again that is) that I may have them do a story pyramid of their own life at some point in the year! :)

 **Putting this safely into my "teacher bag" to be pulled out if/when needed**

It was kind of hard to determine what to put in and what to leave out when you are limited on words and lines.  For instance...where do I put my running?  I decided that my running wasn't as important to me as the others so that's why I left it out...although it is important to me.  Decisions decisions!

What's your story about?  What would your pyramid look like?

Interesting idea. This story pyramid concept would have been very helpful in my school years. Now I will be reflecting on what my story would have to say about me.

this is my first visit to your blog, I mingled my way over.

I like your Meal Plan Monday - I've been doing that at home for a while (a different day though) never thought about putting it online.. might keep me a little more focused. great idea!

That reminds me of the 6 word memoirs. I love those.

My pyramid would be extremely unusual.

I've never seen the story pyramid before, but I like the flow of the it.

Huh... that's a great idea. I may have my history students try that with some concepts.

I've never heard of a story pyramid. The idea intrigues me... I'll have to try it to describe a few books and movies before I try it with my own life.
