What is Talk for Writing?
Basically, it's storytelling. (And non-fiction telling!)
Children 'learn' a series of texts throughout each year through story-mapping, games and role-play.)
To motivate children and teachers as writers
To become familiar with language rhythms and patterns of different text types.
To internalise a ‘living library’ so children have a bank of stories/texts to draw from when writing their own.
To help build children’s imaginative world
To internalise vocabulary, the flow of sentences and text patterns needed for writing
1. Preparation
2. Cold task
3. Imitation
4. Innovation
5. Invention
(& Hot Task)
6. Evaluation
Learning texts orally to internalise language.
Story maps (visual representation)
Actions (kinaesthetic)
Drama, role play, props
Retelling in groups, pairs
What could we do to support imitation?
Once in Kenya, there lived a girl called Jamina. One morning, she went for a walk with her grandfather.

Jamina pretended to hunt an elephant and heard a sad sound. She followed it and got lost in the jungle.
