This week you will be writing a story. Begin by watching the story how to guide to remind you what you need to include in your story. You can make a checklist to use later in the week of the key features and write any key/powerful vocabulary down. Look at the example of a story and see if you can find any of the key features. You can also add to your vocabulary bank too.
Watch the video and use your checklist from Monday and non-negotiables on the planning sheet to plan your story.
Wednesday and Thursday
Now it's your chance to shine. The next 2 days you will be writing your story.
Remember to use your plan, the vocabulary sheet and the non-negotiables to help you. You can watch the video again if you need to.
Free style Friday. It is over to you today - you can choose. You might want to do another story, draw and label a character from a story, role play your story for family members, make the puppets and put on a puppet show, make bubbles, do bubble painting. The choice is yours. Have fun!
It would be great if you could keep an on-going word bank of powerful vocabulary and new words you have learnt. Just like we do on our word walls in school. This can be added to all the time. You can add new words from reading too.
