Writing adventure stories can be tricky! This pack takes apart adventure story writing in different ways. There are lots of options for different learning styles (story telling character templates and so on). Lots of scaffolded writing frames for children who need extra help with English. It is also carefully structured to help with the 'Boys and Writing' initiative. It can be linked to the Common Core and the British or International (PYP) curriculum. Where there are differences in spelling, a duplicate is included. There are photos from Egypt and a detailed story starter among many other resources. This pack is regularly updated. Feel free to ask any questions. Enjoy!
Suitable for the American, British and international curriculums.
