This book here "Once upon a slime" is awesome! There are (as the title suggests) 45 really fun ways to get writing... FAST! You can find out about the author (Andy Griffiths) and the other really funny books he has written here.
Today we took the first lesson and tried our hand at writing funny comics titled "Bad mummy and the..."
The idea is to think about the opposite of what your mum or dad might say if you asked to do something bad (like feed a lion your chips, or jump off a cliff into shark infested water).
We tried our hand at some of these comics. They are in pencil, so might be slightly hard to read. Our Success Criteria was rather long (we like to stick to about 3), but it couldn't really be helped in this task.
1 - Use 7-9 boxes
2 - Think of a Dangerous/Silly thing to ask
3 - Discussion between parent and child
4 - Parent says yes
5 - Show us what happens
6 - Parent says "oops"
7 - Must be funny, but not rude/gross
Here are a couple that managed to finish their drafts today. We might publish these if we get time over the next two weeks.
|Part 1 - Bad mummy and the whirlpool|
|Part 2 - Bad mummy and the whirlpool|
|Bad mummy and the jellyfish infested water at the bottom of the cliff.|
|Bad mummy and the market|
It was a fun activity that definitely got us talking and telling stories! We will have to make sure we do another one of the 44 activities that are left in this book in term 3.
Writing and oral language made E-Z!
