Idea for an ongoing class story

February 22, 2008 at 7:21 pm Leave a comment

This is inspired by the Big Issue article I blogged about here.

“I’m going to tell you a story about a group of wonderful people. When I say they’re wonderful, I don’t just mean they’re special, although they are each precious and unique like a diamond. I don’t just mean they’re capable of great things, although they are, each and every one. I don’t just mean they’re magical, though their magic is wonderful. They’re wonderful because they are full of wonder. They are curious, and interested, and learn all day every day in every way they can. Shall I tell you their names? [get out aged-looking scroll and read class names]

Today they are… lots of opportunities for magical and real settings, could relate to current project.

Today they met… dragons, whatever

Today they found… magical objects, gained magical powers…

Tell at end of day, perhaps end of week. Possibly best not to mix magic with real events especially with younger children and those with language difficulties as it could cause confusion. Perhaps best to set and keep in fantasy world. Always positive about all the children, no matter their behaviour through the rest of the day! It could be particularly good for helping to integrate new members of the class and those who are more isolated.
