The EL3 students have been creating story maps at home to learn traditional tales, as well as other well-known children’s stories. This is a wonderful way for the children to internalise and learn the stories and helps in developing many areas of literacy.
The children have used symbols or pictures as prompts to retell the story to family members and teachers. The children then practice the stories by retelling the story through the map, incorporating drama, and some even creating their versions of the story.
We are so pleased to see what great language, creativity and imagination has emerged from creating story maps at home.
