Read another version of the story and compare.
Recap the story map and draw a picture for the next part of the story, the ending. These are usually happy endings, so today you will choose how you want your story to end. Think about all the endings we have heard and which one you liked best and why.
In my story I might write:The shepherd hooked the wolf around the neck with his crook and amazingly granny jumped out whole and unharmed. The wolf was very cross because he was so hungry and he chased one of the shepherd’s sheep into the deep dark forest, never to be seen again. Red Riding Hood and granny thanked the shepherd and invited him to tea to share the cakes. They all lived happily every after.
Draw pictures for this part of the story.
Ask the children to tell you sentences to tell the story for their pictures. As you write what the children are 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.
This is so exciting! Well done you have become an author and written a whole story and you have used your ideas for the ending.
What super hard work!
I can't wait to read your stories.
