A resource helping children to start expressing themselves verbally and in writing on the basis of multiple picture prompts.
Generating Narratives – Set 1 is designed for Year 1 through to Year 6 students and supports the generation of oral and written narratives. Through picture sequences, this teacher resource contains 10 storylines and 30 x A4 picture cards which illustrate the structure of narratives. For example, each storyline consists of an introduction picture, a picture of a problem (or complication) and a picture of how the characters are feeling.
This pack contains the following story themes in A4 narrative structure card format:
- Pet Dog On The Loose
- Surprise Hatch
- Late For School
- Car Accident
- Flooded Town
- Escape Rabbit
- Campsite Danger
- Bolting Horse
- Baby Bird Falling
The picture sets illustrate the core initial components of narratives (i.e. introductions, problems and character’s thoughts and feelings.) The card sets have been designed to support student’s understanding of narratives and to assist students in the process of generating the content of narratives. The card sets provide multiple opportunities for students to rehearse narrative composition in a supported and structured manner.
