If you have bought any of my resources, I would really appreciate it if you would review them. Many thanks!

Alien Planet Story mats to aid creative writing

Alien Planet Story mats to aid creative writing

They are on PPT so you can display them for the whole class or print them off to be used individually. The first one is to help children to describe an alien planet.

Story Mat - The Storm - to aid creative writing

Story Mat - The Storm - to aid creative writing

The story mat is designed to spark off ideas in children and to give them confidence to write independently. It should also help to extend their vocabularies. It is in PPT format so that it can be shown to the whole class at the beginning of the lesson as well as being printed out. This was originally designed to fit in with a year 5 topic on Greek Myths but then adapted to other storm descriptions – hence the 2 versions. Fully editable. Tips: Talk about the pictures and their own storm experiences Test them on some of the vocab e.g. describe the ocean waves using a simile or find three words to describe the sound of the wind Can they find any other words to add to any of the lists? Discuss how a storm can build up from a cold dark sky to torrential rain with thunder & lightning. You can illustrate this by getting the class to make sound effects – gentle patter with fingers, building up to clapping, whistling, then howling wind, thunder clap. Challenge them to use vocabulary from each section in their descriptions. For further resources see - https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/Jazel
