Stories from other Cultures - Handa’s Surprise

Handa’s Surprise - the beginning using TFW

We have read the story Handa’s Surprise and have made a vocab wall on our English display describing all the different fruits in the story.

We then added our own adjectives after we tasted the fruit from Handa’s Surprise. 
We then completed some descriptive writing using the conjunction ‘because’.
