Watch for Ice - Creative Writing Prompt (Part 1 - Planning)

This is Part 1 of a 4 part activity - plan, write, edit and finally publish) Poor Scamper! "His legs kept sliding out from under him as he tried to stand on the ice. In the end he slid along on his back and the children had to haul him off the pond". We read this in Chapter 1 of The Secret Seven and that got me thinking of other animals and people having trouble in the snow and ice. Have a look at the pictures attached and have a think about any stories you might have about having trouble on the snow and ice. Using your story or one of the pictures as inspiration, plan your writing for the week. Just like in your writing books, draw a picture for the beginning, middle and end of your story. Remember to add lots of details. When you have finished the pictures in your plan, add some adjectives (the precise and specific words you are going to use). Finally, add some speech bubbles to your plan - you can record your voice here. Your plan is a space for you to gather all your ideas so duplicate the sheet if you need to but remember, we are not writing our story yet.
