Text map madness

This week we have been innovating our class text maps! We came up with some forest themed vocabulary to adapt our Story of Te Fiti to make a new story. This vocabulary was then added to our VCOP board to refer to through the writing process.

Then, we practised our innovated text map using the new forest themed vocabulary. We chose some new actions to help us remember the story.

Next, the children were given our new forest story with the new vocabulary words missing.

Finally, the children retold the innovated story in their books, using the key vocabulary and the text map. The children were super proud of their work and enjoyed the story telling process!
