|the finished story map poster|
today i was inspired to start creating things for the third term of our schooling (primary schools in new zealand begin their school holidays at the end of next week), we have two weeks left of our current themes before we change into some new themes for the new term. story telling is going to be a major writing focus for my two peeps next term so the story map poster i repinned onto my home school projects was the perfect thing to create for the classroom. the poster originated from growing kinders. this is a lovely website mainly for kindergarten kids but i felt i could adapt if for use with ben and polly.

understanding of the categories
outcome: well i love the poster, it brightens up the classroom, and while i won't be using it for a couple of weeks i am really encouraged by my plan behind it and the fact i can help guide them through the story writing process with a lot more structure now.
it is wonderful websites like growing kinders that provide home schooling mums, like me, with such wonderful inspiration that makes their job easier, more empowered, and so happy to have the opportunity to teach their children well :)
