Flat Stanley Writing: Cut, sequence & write to retell the story

Based on the story of Flat Stanley.

Hand drawn pictures for the children to cut out, sequence, write about and colour in.

*Includes captions for children who are not writing and only sequencing and matching the description

To differentiate:
-Support could cut out and sequence the pictures and match with the captions
-Core children can sequence and use the word bank to also write about the pictures
-More able children can sequence and write independently with given challenges such as ‘Include at least 3 time adverbials’

Sequencing activities usually take a few sessions.

  1. Cut, order and stick the activities.
  2. Writing captions for the first half of the images
  3. Writing for the second half of the activities
    I usually ask the children to colour after they have met the objectives for that session and finish colouring in at the end.
    Black and white. No colour ink needed!
