Captions and labels, own version narrative
Overview and Outcomes:
In this ten-session sequence, which we suggest will take 3 weeks to cover, the children find rhyming animal-object pairs. They investigate who should sit where through the reading of Oi Frog and use Sound-talk to re-tell a page of the text. They devise their own rhyming pairs of animals and objects and through using strategies such as Supported Sentences, they write their own version rhyming narrative, revising Phase 2-4 of Letter and Sounds and applying elements of Phase 5 where applicable. Phonics teaching is embedded throughout and suggestions for Continuous Provision are also made.
Synopsis of Text:
Cats sit on mats, hares sit on chairs, mules sit on stools and gofers sit on sofas, but Frog does not want to sit on a log! Jam-packed with animals and silliness, this original rhyming story will have young children in fits of laughter.
