Penguin - Sequencing the Story

Jamie, Bailey and Rosie sequenced the story.

We looked at how the main character felt at different points in the story. We thought about what he might be thinking and what he might be saying.

Penguin - We 'Boxed Up' the story then used this to plan our own stories in a similar style.

Tegan had some great ideas.

Penguin - Writing our own stories

Just before Christmas we looked at a story called '25 December Lane'

We labelled all of the toys and used our purple polishing pens to add adjectives to make our writing more interesting.

We used our adjectives to write interesting sentences to Father Christmas.

Little Red Riding Hood

We used small pictures taken from the story to order it from the start to the end.

We worked together to story map the story

We drew the important parts of the story.

We thought about the parts of the story and boxed up the important parts.

We wrote the first part of the story together then carried on during our independent writing time.

We used the story map to help us.

We innovated the story and came up with a new story called Little Boy Blue.

Finally we wrote our own story Little Boy Blue.
We started by changing the story map.
We developed our ideas on a boxing up grid.

Tiddalick Story Map

The story map helps us to retell the story.
We only map the important parts of the story.

We used little pictures to sequence the story.

Story Mountain - we played the story onto a story mountain.

Shared Writing - we all worked together to write the first part of the story using the story map and story mountain to help us.
