We have started reading ‘Storm Boy‘ by Colin Thiele as our class novel this term within our CBL Big Idea of ‘Change’.
It has taken us a while (two and a bit weeks) to work our way through the first chapter of the book because of the different language and imagery that is being used. Despite this, we are all very interested in what is happening and really enjoy looking up different shells, plants and animals that are mentioned by the author as he sets up the setting using his words.
Once we had read over the first part of the story a few times and understood the vocabulary and what was going on, we had to verify the visual images that we were creating in our minds with evidence from the text.
Here are some of our images that we have of the setting and characters of ‘Storm Boy‘ so far and the vocabulary that is helping us create this.
Let us know what you thought of our images – we can’t wait to keep you updated with the novel!
