Two PowerPoints which include scans from two picture book memoirs. The Little Refugee (Anh Do) - It includes pre-reading questions. The powerpoint also introduces key terms for analysing these visuals: visual components of a text such as placement, salience, framing, representation of action or reaction, shot size, social distance and camera angle. Body Language – A non-verbal form of communication including facial expression, posture & gestures. Salience – a strategy of emphasis, highlighting what is important in a text. In images, salience is created through strategies like the placement of an item in the foreground, size and contrast in tone or colour. There are also comprehension questions and an explanation of things to note about the illustrations. The Peasant Prince (Li Cunxin) - a more comprehensive lesson (for a higher class). It includes information about the author and the illustrator and the techniques she used. It introduces visual literacy techniques to look for e.g. use of colour vs black and white. Ways to describe colour e.g. vivid and muted. Colour theory - the connotations of specific colours. Describing the positioning of elements within the image (e.g. foreground & background). How to describe the settings within the story (there is a graphic organiser for them to fill in to respond to three images from the book). Nonverbal communication (explanations of body langauge and facial expression). Students have the chance to apply this to describing three figures in the book. Shot size, Angle and Mise en scene are defined and there are further activities for each of these. Other concepts are covered incuding reading path, salience, positioning, vectors, allusion, symbols and language features.

This flip book was designed for me to encourage reluctant writers to plan their stories before writing. It contains flaps for title ideas, characters, setting, problem, other events and solution. Each section should be cut out and then glued or stapled together to make the flip book.
Stuck is an EXCELLENT book to use in KS1 as a base for a fiction unit, particularly good as a follow up to the Lost & Found series by Oliver Jeffers to cover 'Stories by the same author'. My favourite unit in English by far and the children loved it even more! I have put together some resources because there wasn't much out there on Twinkl etc. I took photos from the book to create a sequencing activity, made powerpoints to introduce adjectives and noun phrases, and writing lists, made my own plan for the children to create their own similar story, shortened the story and re-written it in the form of Pie Corbett's Talk for Writing (T4W) style- (which my children loved to learn and perform with actions! ) as well as creating a themed page with borders for them to use to re-tell the story in independent writing. I hope they are useful :)

The Real Easter Story is a two-in-one mini book (you get two copies per page) created with images that should appeal to young children. The sentences are simple, however, the vocabulary may pose a challenge to some. Therefore I would recommend that some assistance be given to students. This product comes in black and white only to facilitate easy printing and of course to allow students to color the pages themselves. The pages are set for double sided printing. I also included both a colored and a black and white version of the mini-book cover page for you. Enjoy! Nicole
