Literacy Activity

Story Treasure Hunt

Ask your grown-up to write 4-6 clues about a story you know well and hide the words around the house. For example, if they were leaving clues about Jack and the Beanstalk they might write ‘beanstalk’, ‘giant’, ‘cow’ and ‘Magic Beans’. Try and read the clues by yourself. Can you make a story map re-telling the story from the clues you have discovered?


Was your child able to draw a story map? Please email photos or comments to:


Here is an example of what your child’s story map may look like.
