In this session I read my picture book story Mary the Morris. Children join in, and there's a fun surprise at the end of the reading. Plenty of opportunities for follow-up activities – recounts, predicting and storyboarding.
Listening and responding, predicting.
Size of group
Works best with a small group – no more than 30.
About 30 – 40 minutes.
Ideas for follow-up activities
- Independent work: Retell the story in words and pictures.
- Role-play: Re-enact the story using children's own words.
- Discussion: What happens next to Bertie the Bentley?
