Wisdom Tales Comic Life By David









In our LA class, we made wisdom tales comics on a software called Comic Life. We had learned how to use it in Technology with Mr. Schaefer. It was still difficult to convey the entire story in four panels. I drew my pictures on Sketchbook Express, and I emailed them to myself and put them in a comic in the computer. Comic Life is fun software to use.

Wisdom Tales Comic by: Ellie

Comic by Ellie

In class we took a Wisdom Tale and made a fun comic. I did The Lion and the Rabbit. It is about a lion that kills for pleasure. The animals then make a deal that they would give the lion one animal each day in return that they wouldn’t be harmed. The first animal, a wise rabbit, tricked the lion into going to a well because he wanted the lion to think there was a very powerful lion there. The lion did jump into the well and the animals lived!

My Own Wisdom Tale by Noah C.








Above is my wisdom tale that I wrote for my L.A. class at school. I used Sketchbook Express to draw the picture of the hyena. Comment below to write what you think the moral is to this story.

The Hyena
Noah C.

There once lived a hyena who hated to help others. One day he was asked to help a chicken carry some straw so the chicken could make a bed. The hyena got terribly hungry while carrying the straw and devoured the chicken.

The next day, the hyena was asked yet again to help. This time he had to have an old friend, the zebra, live in his house because the zebra broke his legs and could not care for himself. The hyena was not willing to share his food or water even if the zebra was a friend. The zebra had to find his own food and was starved.

The third day, the hyena was asked to help a lion, but decided to be annoying instead. He stood in the lion’s path and made it hard for the lion to hunt.

Finally, when the hyena got in the lion’s path a couple of times, the lion chased him out of the forest and told him to never come back or else he will be hunted down.


Wisdom Tales Comic by Michiko








In class we made a comic based on one of our wisdom tales. I chose a tale called Old Dog And Coyote. It is about an old watch dog who was sleeping while a coyote chased the farmer’s chickens. The dog went to find his own food and he found the coyote. He helped the coyote and the coyote helped the dog get the farmers trust back. I chose to do my pictures on Sketchbook Express on my iPad. For me, getting the pictures on to the computer was hard. I emailed them to myself but it continued to freeze. After I got the pictures on to the computer it was easy. I really liked doing a project on comic life and I hope I get to do it again.

Comic Project By Kira S







In LA class we had to do a comic on any wisdom tale we would like to retell. I chose The Wild Strawberry. Using Comic Life was new to me because I hadn’t used it before. Although once I got the hang of it, it was really fun. I also enjoyed drawing my pictures and then using Sketch Book Pro to add detail to the picture. It was fun to learn how to use Sketch Book Pro! I did enjoy this project and I hope we do something like this again!

A Flock Of Birds Wisdom Tale by Norman






I made some pictures for a wisdom tale called A Flock Of Birds from India. This is one of the pictures. The tale goes like this. There was a flock of quail living in a forest. One day a hunter showed up and captured some quail in a net to sell at the market. The remaining quail went to go see the old wise quail. The old wise quail said that they needed to work together. The hunter threw the net over the quail, but this time all the quail beat their wings as one and lifted the net away.

The next day the hunter came back and threw a net over the quail. The quail beat their wings as one, but one quail accidentally bumped into another one and started a fight. The quail could not lift the net and the hunter took them to market. The hunter laughed and said, “United they escape, divided they’re dinner.”  MORAL: Work together for the better of all.

Wisdom Tales By: Michael S



There once was a monkey named Sin Jin was so good at monkey ball. He thought he was the best there is. He always scored a minimum of 20 monkey points a game. One day he scored 40 monkey points in a game. He told everyone in the monkey village. Some people would say great job and some would say why are you so full of yourself Sin Jin. He said he was just so good at monkey ball.

Monkey ball was just like basketball but called monkey ball. One day a man and his monkey ball team came up to Sin Jin, the best in the town, and his team. Sin Jin was bragging to the man about how he was so good at monkey ball. After he heard Sin Jin bragging, the man challenged him to a monkey ball game. Sin Jin was so ready for some competition. They were going to play in front of the whole town and they were off.

It was a tough game until Sin Jin’s team got tired and was weak and the other team pulled away. Sin Jin’s team lost and he never loses. He blamed it on his team. They said why do you have to be so full of yourself?

Sin Jin went home and thought about what happened. He apologized to his team and everyone. He told them that he he would not be so full of himself and the town lived happy forever.

The moral: don’t be so full of yourself.

Squirrel and His Foolish Friends by Davi

Squirrel and His Foolish Friends


Once upon a time, there was a forest. In this forest, there lived a tribe of squirrels. All of the squirrels in this tribe were daredevils, except for one squirrel named Bob Scaredy Squirrel.

One day, Bob was talking with his friends, when they heard raucous laughter. Bob’s friends went investigating while he admired a caterpillar as it made its way up a tree. In the middle of its ascent, a lizard jumped from a nearby branch, grabbed the caterpillar, and started to run. As soon as it was out of sight, Bob heard a voice calling his name.

“Bob, come here Bob, you have to see this!!!!” Bob ran past the trees and saw, spread out on a cliff, a colossal log. Squirrels were running all over the log, their claws clacking against the wet wood.  Suddenly, there was a large crack and the log dipped a few feet. All the squirrels gasped, then started laughing. It seemed that the crack only enticed them more to go on the log, not to run away.

“Come on Bob,” Bob’s friends urged. “This log is really cool!!! It even cracked a little bit!!” Of course Bob, being a smart squirrel said no. When Bob’s friends started urging him even more, he started arguing. When the squirrels started chanting his name, Bob gave in.

He started to slowly walk towards the log, trying to not be scared. When he set one foot on the log, Bob started thinking of all the horrible things that could happen to him if he went on the log.

“No!” Bob declared, “I won’t do it!” And with that, Bob walked off into the forest. He walked for a little while, when he heard a large crack, and squirrels screaming, loudly at first, then slowly getting quieter. Bob raced back to find that the log had broken, and all the squirrels had fallen to the rocky ground below.

Moral: Do what’s right. Don’t give in to negative peer pressure.

The Useless Tree Comic By Anna W.

In language arts we made comics on one of the wisdom tales we read. I chose The Useless Tree as my wisdom tale. I really enjoyed making it because I love drawing and it was a chance to be creative. I made my comic in Comic Life 2 and it was my first time using it. It was a great experience and I thought it was really cool that I could design everything on my own. I love drawing so it was fun that we actually got to draw the pictures for the comic.

The moral of my story was to not judge a book by its cover. Also, the other moral was that everything has a use. The Useless Tree is about a tree that is very crooked and ugly. It never gets cut down and is left all alone on the hill. Even though every day kids come and play under the tree, there is one man who thinks the tree had a use one day. I chose this story because I thought it would be fun to draw and because it would be easy to explain. I can wait to make another comic like this!

The Lion Makers Comic by Will P.

In LA we each chose a wisdom tale and made a comic about it. I chose to make my comic on The Lion Makers. I chose this tale because I think that the moral is important. I used Comic Life 2 to make my comic and I used Sketchbook to draw the pictures. I enjoyed using Comic Life and Sketchbook because they are fun and pretty easy to use. I learned many things from using these programs including how to use the paint bucket on Sketchbook.

The Lion Makers is about four Brahman. One of them had common sense while the others were book-smart. The intelligent Brahman found Lion bones and tried to bring it back to life while the Brahman with common sense hid in a tree. The Lion ate the three smart Brahman. The moral of the story is, common sense is as important as intelligence.
