Not a Stick - December 2020

We read the story ‘Not a Stick’ by Antoinette Portis. We completed a variety of activities based around sticks both inside and outside the classroom. After sharing the story a few times we described how sticks feel, developing our vocabulary. We then thought of our own ideas for using a stick and drew pictures in the style of the book. Some of us were able to record our idea underneath the picture. We turned our ideas into a class book to share.
