Watch/listen to the story

First of all up-level the phrases and adjectives in the story including:

lovely things to eat.  Mog dreamt about a big egg. But some big birds came. One of them wanted to eat Mog.

Stuck to her ___ tail.

And then it went into the ___ fire.

Saw her shoot past.

Horrible noise.

Sad. Happy. Thankful.

Additionally discuss how the Christmas tree looked before the fire and then once the fire had burnt it - pretty, christmassy, colourful, decorative, uplifting then bare, barren, dead, burnt to a crisp, not at all christmassy.

 

Then plan your retell.  Finally write your retell of the story.
