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.
Recap the story map you have already drawn and draw a picture for the next part of the story, the problem. This is part of the story where something changes, a difficulty happens. What is the problem?
Red Riding Hood went off the path and trod on the wolf’s tail. She told the wolf where she was going – oh no!
Draw a picture and write sentences for the picture.
Look at the pictures I have drawn and think about the words you would use to tell this part of the story.
I might say:
Little Red Riding Hood saw some pretty flowers and went off the path. Suddenly she trod on the wolf's tail. He woke up very cross and asked where she was going.
What you need to do now is to draw pictures for the problem part 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.
