Who’s ready to get creative and collaborate on a short story?

  • Students get together in small groups and perhaps come up with a team name.
  • The group comes up with one key word from The Dot story that was written or inferred.
  • They then come up with a set of 4 other words (that don’t have to be from the story).
  • The children write each of their 5 words on a circular ‘dot’ and have a photo taken of the words.
  • These photo story prompts are posted on the blog.
  • Individuals/pairs/groups from the other class then come up with a short story that includes each of the words.

Need a circle to write your word on? Feel free to use this …
