We are story tellers.





20140624-095823.jpg We made story maps using pictures from You Choose. We love this book as it helps us to use our imagination to make up our own stories.
Can you use one of these story maps to make up your own story? You can either be an author and write your own story or you can be a story teller and tell someone else your story using different voices for different characters. I would love to see and hear some of your stories…

To help us understand what Florence and her nurses had to do when they got to the hospital in Scutari, we created an old hospital in our barn outside. We had to clean it up just like the nurses (we were glad there was no mouldy food or maggots!)
