This is a complete Literacy unit for Year 1 based on the beautiful book ‘Grandad’s Island’ written by Benji Davies.
This free download is a detailed 16 day unit of work that drives towards a genre outcome. Within this unit there are 10 Sentence Stacking lessons which will help you to clearly teach the Year 1 National Curriculum requirements for writing. This planning integrates the three zones of writing: The FANTASTICs (ideas), The Grammaristics (tools), The Boomtastics (techniques).
This planning has been created ‘live’ with teachers during a Planning Day workshop. These workshops are hands on experiences for teachers where they are guided through the process of creating a Sentence Stacking unit. Teachers end the day with a complete unit and the skills to plan their own unit in the future. To see when our next Planning Day workshops are taking place, click on the conferences tab above.
