For this session you will need some plain paper and a pencil.
In the welcome sessions this week we are going to read different versions of the story of Little Red Riding Hood. Then, you are going to tell the story using our own words as you draw a story map and then at the end of the week you are going to create a new ending to the story.
After listening to the different version of the story, think about and discuss some of the features that are the same and those that are different. We will find that many of the stories are slightly different in some way but the main storyline stays the same.
To start our story we need to think about the characters in the story today and the setting for the story.
Look at the pictures I have drawn and think about the words you would use to tell this part of the story.
For these pictures I might say:
Once upon a time there was silly girl called Red Riding Hood. She always wore a red cape. One day her Mum asked her to take a basket of delicious cakes to her granny in the woods.
Red Riding Hood took the twisty turny path through the deep dark forest.
What you need to do now is to draw pictures for the first 2 parts of the story.
Ask your child to tell you sentences to tell the story for their pictures. As you write what your child is telling you, encourage them to write some of the words that they could sound out and spell independently, using their ‘fred fingers’. Remember also to have a go at writing the red words that the children are able to read.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
