This title presents 30 large format cards to stimulate narrative. Boost creative writing sessions with these wonderful cards which provide an image for the opening of a narrative and can be expressed as storytelling, drama, poetry or prose. The cards are grouped into genres including: Fantas, Real-life adventure, Travel, and Mystery. Suggestions are related to each genre. Some images link to more than one category, and, of course, cards can be employed in any way users wish.
This resource includes a CD-ROM to enable teachers to print off each card as required for individual pupils.
Each box comes with an instruction booklet and flashcards which are designed to:
- Improve attention, language and observation skills, including listening, understanding, vocabulary, writing skills, expressive language, auditory memory, sequencing, turn-taking, classification, logical thought and problem solving
- Encourage and inspire visual and kinaesthetic learners
- Develop emotional literacy
