Mrs Beal’s Grade 3 class in Cape Town has been having such a lot of fun preparing for International Dot Day. If you take a peek you will see that one of the activities on this blog is Connect the Dot stories. My class has done a variation of this activity and we have called it ‘What happens next?’
This is how we went about the lesson.
- We all listened to Peter Reynolds reading the DOT STORY (we, unfortunately, do not have the book yet). As we listened to the story we wrote, on a piece of paper, some of the words that had caught our attention during the reading of the story.
- After that we chose 3 or 4 of our words, plus we added 2 random words that were not in the story, and we swapped papers.
- Whoever received the new set of words needed to write a story using those words. The story needed to end with ‘What happens next’.
- We did this lesson using a collaborative Google slides presentation. We used two slides from the Slides Carnival free template, Eglamour, because the template contained two lovely dot slides.
We had fun reading each other’s stories. However we would like to ask you to add to the stories! If you would like to help us in this way, just add the name of the story in the comment box along with another few sentences showing what happens next. We would love that!
Here are our stories:
Can you add an ending to any of our stories?
