Many children love story time in Prep 4.3. This week the children have demonstrated a greater interest in creating and telling stories in our classroom writer’s area. To support the children, we are spending more time focusing on the components of books and how writers use stories to express their ideas and creativity. The children are becoming more aware of the role of the author, titles, characters, sequence, illustrations and words in a story. The idea is that by understanding the parts of a book and story the children will have a set of concepts to include in their own work.
