I photocopy each piece of work onto the respective pastel colored paper and tend to have a 'color theme' for the week which means my pencils etc are all the same color! You'll also need a dice and a pack of crayons. In the first week I get them to use the story mat to write a story using ideas from the things in my story chest (Just random toys and bits of junk like keys etc. I hope this makes sense!) and in successive weeks we go through and underline the words we've done that lesson. I'll use the story mat again to help with the big write (child friendly mark scheme attached).
