The Christmas Story Machine (by Alan Peat Ltd)
The Christmas Story Machine helps both pupils and busy classroom teachers to plan Christmas Stories (over a million combinations are possible...and that's no exaggeration!).
The machine has eight parts:
2 Main character/s
3 Other character/s
6 Random Language Feature
Pupils 'spin' each of the eight parts of the machine (up to three times) to reveal a HUGE range of genre-appropriate ideas.
When ALL eight parts have been 'spun' the story machine collates all of the ideas into one printable sheet which can be used as a stimulus for a Christmas Story.
It's NOT prescriptive - pupils can include as many of the ideas as they wish but they don't have to include all of them. Whether they include a few or every one they certainly will be learning a great deal about the genre.
This is the third in a series of Story machines which will cover all narrative genres. Check out our Science Fiction Story Machine and Fairytale Story Machine!
