Talk to Write
Purpose is to understand how a story is sequenced and to remember it and write the story.
We will be using the story of the "The Day Louis Got Eaten" as a model to:
- Build a sequential memory of the story events
- Create Key points of writing which must be in their writing
- Create a "story-map" to visually plan out the key steps
- Create "story-actions" to physically plan out the key steps
- Act out and retell key points
- Re-tell the story using the key points
- Extend the story by including details and/or our own innovations
- Publish our version of the story for an audience

We will be working in two writing groups to cater for the needs of students:

The "Process of Writing" group will learn and practise:
- Mechanics of writing (using a pencil, letters, words, writing a sentence)
- Retelling and sequencing of the story (Making a sentence/story make sense)

Our higher group focus is;
- Using description to add interest
- Writing sequentially to tell the story, (beginning middle and end)
- Receiving and giving constructive feedback
- Editing/proof-reading own work.
- Innovating the story (making it our own)

To Do List: 
Share versions of our story with others
Identify key points as a group
Act out the story using actions to help us remember key points
Record the steps using iPad or other medium
Write the story using the sequence we identified.
