A fun literacy lesson for F-6 in response to this year’s National Simultaneous Storytime text, Josh Pyke and Ronojoy Ghosh’s wonderful book, “Family Tree”. Students reflect on their ‘roots’ (people or things of importance) and ‘growing leaves’ (their dreams for the future). This lesson produces a gorgeous display for students to showcase their work, in the creation of a class family tree.

Great to match to NAPLAN criteria

You can easily search for a literary device that you are teaching, eg character, setting, along with any particular grammar/punctuation or text type. Great for programming, students engaged with the learning.
