What will my students learn?
This pack allows you to be flexible according to your context and the age and level of your students. You can use the activities to help your students learn key character, materials and setting vocabulary to be able to retell the story, or you can focus mainly on ordinal numbers, present simple, adjectives such as ‘quick’, ‘slow’ and ‘strong’ and/or the connector ‘but’. There are also repeated structures your children can assimilate such as ‘I can ….with…’ You might also use the opportunity to focus on intention and refusal with ‘will’ or exploit useful phrases and structures from the story, e.g., ‘Let me in!’ There are also several opportunities for classroom language and language which goes beyond the individual vocabulary items.
Take a look at the preview, for a better idea of possible target language points.
Apart from learning language, they’ll develop their fine motor skills, literacy skills, social skills, gain confidence, and develop their understanding of the world.
Comprehensive Activity Suggestions provide lots of ideas for activities to do before and after, and also give you ideas for interactive ways to conduct the activities for effective language practice.
What are the resources?
- Storytelling cards – Use these to retell the story in an alternative way, or print and use in sequencing activities pre or post reading. They include useful prompts you can print on the back with ideas for questions or comments to involve the children.
- Colouring sheets – Choose from three different images for your littlest learners. Follow the Activity Suggestions for ideas on how to incorporate more language practice.
- Numbers jigsaws – 6 different options! There are 2 different images in 3 different jigsaw types. Each jigsaw is cut into strips. You can choose from numerals 1-10, numerals 1-20 or numerals and words 1-10. Follow the activity suggestions to combine the game with a colouring or craft activity.
- Storyboards – Choose to focus on 8 or 12 story stages. These templates include completed versions to use in colouring activities and blank versions to use with the cut and paste pictures in sequencing activities. You can even cut them up afterwards to use in card games.
- Story wheel crafts – Help your students with sequencing, retelling the story and/or learning the script for a simple drama performance. The templates allow you to be flexible and focus on different language skills depending on your context and your students. You can choose from 8 story stages or 12 story stages single sided or double sided.
- Pop-up theatre and stick puppets – Make a simple pop-up theatre to re-enact the story with the stick puppets. Easy for even your youngest learners to make and fun to manipulate. It includes a simplified storytelling theatre script.
- Story slider crafts – Choose from a range of templates to work on a variety of skills, including sequencing and literacy skills. See the activitiy suggestions for ideas on how to maximise language practice before, during and after the craft.
- Line matching sheets – Three different templates to develop fine motor skills while also practising key story language.
- Headbands and puppets – Your children can create their own story characters for a fun story re-enactment. Another excellent engaging way to consolidate story language through drama.
- Mini-books – A wide range of templates to choose from, depending on the skills you want to practise. You can make the books to use in retelling activities and/or combine with one of the sequencing/literacy templates to add further lesson stages. Whichever templates you choose, the children will go home with another fun record of learning to share with their families.
- Board games – Choose from a longer or shorter game and use the activity suggestions for fun game play ideas. You can use playing the game as a way to prepare for a STEM activity where the children collect the materials then go on to collaborate with their classmates to build their very own hybrid house. Have fun experimenting with how easy it is to knock down afterwards.
- Matching cards – Use in simple jigsaw activities, memory games and matching tasks. Great for opening routines too.
- Mini-cards – Excellent for a range of games and matching tasks. Print multiple sets for pair and small group work.
- Flash Cards – Use in a variety of ways to introduce and practice new language, develop literacy skills or as visual prompts for language games and story re-telling activities.
