OUR CORE VALUES @ SALC Making Connections INTEGRITY

Making Connections INTEGRITY

Integrity – ‘The Spirit of Honour’

“We aim to demonstrate integrity in our relationships with those in our own and wider community. We believe integrity is at the core of how others see us and as such, seek to be hold fast to what is good, by being honest, fair, trustworthy, respectful and ethical in everything we do. Integrity means we do the right thing and make the right choices, even when no one is watching. When we practise integrity, there is no difference between our behaviour and what we know to be right.”

Titus 2:7 – ‘In everything set them an example by doing what is good’

SEPTEMBER – SHARE A STORY -SWAP A STORY

SEPTEMBER – SWAP A STORY

For the month of September we are going to take a slightly different approach to the physical swapping of stories and instead swap stories by swapping the author and writer of the story in a Junior School progressive story writing attempt.

Progressive Story Writing in the JS Library

As each class comes to the library for their library session, they will add to the story prompt (one line per class). We are going to add to the story starter the “Blue Monster Story Starter”.

This story will be available via a collaborative document (and on the JS Library OPAC home page) and via a hard copy.

More ideas for Progressive Story Writing

 OTHER IDEAS

Use a stimulus such as photos as a prompt to start the story

Art and Visualisation

see the iPad Art Room – Cathy Hunt

Monster Stories

The first monster story that comes to mind is the classic Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak.

Use the following search

  • KEYWORD monster
  • TYPE picture book

 

APP SUGGESTION

There are many apps that allow to you create (and then swap stories). One of these is the Write About app.
