Continuing from yesterday's guided reading, today you are going to do the same activities but with a different book.
I would like you to pick a new book, story or text that you are interested in reading.
This can be a book, a magazine, online, anything. (just make sure it has enough text in it)
Read one page of your text and then try to do the following activities:
- Answer these questions:
- Who are characters?
- Where is it set?
- What are the 3 key events?
- Now have a go at summarising the text. Tell me what the whole page is about in 2 sentences or less. (Use the 3 key events to help you)
- Pick 3 words you find hard and look up the definitions
- Predict what happens on the next page (if you know what happens because you have already read this book before, make up your own ending).
I would love to see a picture of the book you are reading and your answers above. Put these on the blog so we can see what interesting books and texts you love to read and are reading at home.
In this lesson, we will be learning how to identify and use fronted adverbials.
We have used adverbials before to tell how an action is happening.
Can you remember any adverbs?
This will help us when we come to write own own action scenes on Friday.
Follow the link below to take you to the activity.
Now, you should be really good at finding half and quarter. Today we are going to look at thirds.
When we split something into thirds, the denominator is a 3 and so we split the shape or quantity into 3 equal groups.
The chocolate bar has 6 pieces. If we share 6 into 3 equal groups we would get 2 2 2
so we have cut the chocolate bar into thirds and each third (each equal part) has got 2 pieces of chocolate.
Now try some of the questions below:
