Story cards

Story cards

A set of cards divided into character, setting, object and time. Sprinkles uploaded some fantastic cards back in 2006 (http://www.tes.co.uk/article.aspx?storycode=3001354). I’ve used those original images, and then added quite a few extra ones. I use them with my Reception class for whole class storytelling. For older children, they’d also work as a stimulus for individual or group story writing.
