Sequencing/Storyboard for 'The Piano' Literacy link, story mountain.

Sequencing/Storyboard for 'The Piano' Literacy link, story mountain.

This resource uses screen shots from The Piano by Aidan Gibbons (Literacy Shed for free). It is designed to support children in analysing and/or retelling what is happening during each scene in the video. A fantastic video and produces amazing writing at the end of the unit. The children really develop a sense of empathy as the video is unpicked. This resource can be used in a number of ways to discuss characters feelings at each stage, what happens to the music, what the characters are thinking, why those particular memories stand out etc.

Word sorting activity, building vocabulary, zone of relevance.

A simple zone of relevance board. Children can use this for ANY topic as it is generic. Find words (either known or using a thesaurus) and sort them based on how well they describe the topic or person. The words which are okay sit on the outside, the words in the center of the diagram describe the person/topic perfectly. Can be a great starter task or activity for LAP.
