Handa’s Surprise


This classroom display was used in Year 2. It acts as a reminder of the essential elements of a story.
It was adapted from an idea found in Hands on Literacy. The original used The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch. I think it works very well, making a lively and interesting display. I know the teacher well and she’s always careful to actually refer children to displays like this when they are writing stories. In this way it becomes a useable resource rather than just decorative.
