‘The Something’ by Rebecca Cobb 

You would never believe what we found on the playground. A great big hole! We have spent time trying to figure out what on earth has happened. Boy did we have a lot of theories, from aliens to secret passageways.

We received a letter from a little boy called Joey who was terribly upset. He has lost his red toy car and he can’t find it anywhere! We have spent time trying to help him find it but unfortunately it was nowhere to be found.

Wowee! Today we created  text map and some actions for our new model text – ‘Joey and the Deep, Dark Hole’. Can you use it to retell the story?
