National storytelling week - dynamic story generator powerpoint

National storytelling week - dynamic story generator powerpoint

Children choose the course of the story in this dynamic story-telling PowerPoint. I originally wrote this for an assembly in National Storytelling Week and had huge fun with the whole school choosing which characters, setting and plot developments to follow. The children showed me via hands on heads or crossed arms which options they wanted to pick. The children were incredibly excited and engaged; I really enjoyed the assembly. If you miss off the first two slides about National Storytelling Week, this resource could also be used in an English lesson to look at story structure, character, setting and/or the use of descriptive language, e.g. adjectives and similes. Or simply use it in class as an enjoyable story to revisit and retell, allowing the children to make different choices to build a different story. I've tested the PowerPoint thoroughly (including in assembly and at home with my own daughter!) as there are a lot of action buttons to click on that lead you to the next slide in the chosen story. However, if I've missed anything, please do contact me via TES conversations and I will straighten it out asap. PS The fonts don't look very good on the preview pane on the TES website, but should be fine when downloaded. I created the resource using PowerPoint 2016.

Writing assessment /margin checklist / moderation bookmarks KS2 Year 3 & 4 check_edit your writing

I use this resource in my class to remind my Year 3/4 children of my expectations during any writing task. They are great for quickly showing differentiation or just for reminding the children of what is expected of them . I love using the 'check your writing' bookmark as it gives the children a check list of what to look for! This resource includes: 3 differentiated writing book marks (ranging from Year 4 expected, Year 3/4 developing and E.O.Y 2 expectations for my lowers). 1 bookmark to remind how to use speech in writing. 1 bookmark to remind children of what to check in their writing. I have included the word doc so you can add/takeaway criteria. I hope these are useful and help your children with their writing. Many thanks.
