Oral Language Activity – And then…

I use this simple strategy to develop oral language skills and encourage children to use their imagination. Children work in groups of 4/5 to create a story.

Child 1 starts with a simple sentence; Once upon a time two boys and their dog were walking in the woods and then…

Child 2; The dog ran off and the boys chased after him and then …

Child 3; The boys ran and ran and ran but they couldn’t see their dog anywhere and then …


The children really enjoy this simple activity – it helps with oral language skills, sequencing skills and  extending sentences. It’s great as a warm up activity too!
