  1. Beginning our story telling

    March 28, 2014 by khornby

    Today in Grade 1 we discussed what stories need, inorder to make them interesting. We discussed characters, and interesting problem, and the setting. The Grade 1’s agreed that the setting is very important for stories. We had discussions about how the setting can be referred to as different things or displayed in different ways – the background, the set, a scene or the stage. We brainstormed lots of setting ideas – space, park, ocean, airport, city, castles, caves, jungles, farms, and so much more!! We created a setting using paper collage. Stay tuned to see what we are going to do with them!!

    Some of the prep children explored the story “Is your mother a goanna?” By Pamela Allen. After reading the story, they explored retelling it through acting.

  3. Creating Backgrounds (setting)

    March 24, 2014 by khornby

    Today the prep student’s were exploring what settings are in stories. They discovered that settings could be a jungle, a beach, a sunset, tree house, under the sea, houses or volcanoes. After our discussion, they collaborated in small groups to create a background (the setting) for a story. They created their backgrounds using paper collage.
