    I have an interview next week and this is my vague plan so far, I would appreciate any tips and honest feedback. (lesson is 30 mins)

    Introduction Gruffalo puppet book (they have already studied the story so they should remember it hopefully). (5 mins max)
    Activities (20) they can choose from:

    textures trays with letters they can practise forming (rice crispies, sand, glitter)
    playdough with cocoa in, make a 3D gruffalo adding buttons and purple spikes
    writing activity - writing on wall paper (I have done this before in my class and the kids loved it, but using wall paper at tables is less easy to do. Am I shooting myself in the foot, allowing them to write on the floor?? Want to inspire writing, drawing, mark making and labeling. Anything from the story. Thoughts????? (I was going to stay at this station.)
    TA - retelling the story, with the orig. book to help and hopefully characters or pictures of characters from the book.

    Should I have an activity on the white board for them? or using ipads?

    Plenary is simply what have we done and had a go at? max 4-5 mins

    Please be honest, if you think it is terrible, let me know!
    Thank you!
