Today you are going to think a little more about the story. Read the story again and tell the story using your story map. Now think about the end of the story, when Tom finds the jet, black stone in his pocket. Why did he have the stone? Where did it come from? Did someone give it to him? What did the stone do? Did it have a power? The stone glowed and became warm, so this suggests it had a power. What could that power be? Create a table in your book with the 3 headings below. Copy the information and write what you think the power of the stone could be. Then complete 3 more objects. Think of simple things that he could have been given – maybe metals, crystals, gemstones or a curious gadget. Think about the special or magical powers they might have. Do they give the owner special powers and abilities or are they communication devices? Remember you will include this object in your story.
In your books:
Create this table and add 3 more objects.
Object description What does it do? What is its power?
Jet, black stone. It became warm and glowed. You decide?
