For today's English activity, choose one of the writing activities to complete about the picture of the two mice below. The picture is called Bedtime Story.



Write a description of the picture and think about what may be happening. You may describe the two mice and the setting. Remember to include lots of adjectives for detail.

Use these questions to help you:

  • Who can you see? What do they look like?
  • Whose bedroom is it?
  • What does the bedroom look like? 
  • What are the mice doing?
  • How old do you think the small mouse is?
  • What can you tell about the small mouse's personality and interests?
  • How do they feel?
  • Do they read every night before bed? Why?


Fairy Tale Story

Write a fairy tale that the two mice could be reading. You could create your own fairy tale or write about one you know. You could change the story so the main character is a mouse.

For example, Little Red Riding Hood could be a mouse, who takes cheese to her grandma, and she meets a cat in the woods.



Write a diary entry as one of the mice. What did they do that day? Did they have a good day? How do they feel? Do they enjoy reading each night? What will they do tomorrow?



Write a story about the two mice in the picture.
