Katie Morag Grandmother templates and associated resources

Outline pictures of Grannie Island and Grandma Mainland in a Word Document. I created the pictures in Paint to use for a display of children’s writing. Second file includes writing lines - I needed to update my original version for this year’s group! Display file was set up to print on A3 - make sure you scale it to A4 if you don’t have an A3 printer available… The sentences and connectives are the ones I used in the writing lessons. For the display they were cut up and scattered around the board in between some of the Grandmothers the children had used for writing their own sentences.The resource has been updated with 4 extra files - two notebook and two Word files exploring connectives and compound sentences
