This week we are going to focus on making inference from fables (traditional stories). When we make inferences we must use clues in the text to think deeper and gain a greater understanding about characters, setting and the plot.
We will begin the week by completing a response together and finish the week by completing an independent response to one of the fables.
As we read, we will also try to clarify the meaning of any words that we do not understand.
Monday Read Aloud (The Frogs and the Ox)
Wednesday Read Aloud (The Town Mouse & the Country Mouse)\
Thursday Read Aloud (The Fox and the Grapes)
Next week we are lucky enough to have illustrator Mitch Vane visit our school. She is going to talk to the Middle Unit on Monday.
Before she comes, it is important that we learn a little bit about her. Mitch has written a little autobiography about herself. We will read it and think about the writing structure she has used, along with any powerful words.
For reading today you will need to read your selected text. Read the text carefully and use the comprehension strategies to help you understand the text and any words you find challenging.
Once you have completed the text, write a title and SL1S in your book and answer the questions.
Today we are going to use a non fiction text to use our comprehension strategies to understand what we read.
The text is about a famous Australian athlete, Cathy Freeman.
Even though ANZAC Day was this time last week, today we are going to learn about why ANZAC biscuits are quite popular around this time of year. We may even make some!
