Reading: Determining Importance

When we read it is very important we find and understand the most important parts of a text…

To do this we must:

  • Think about what you are reading
  • Think about what you want to learn about
  • Sound out and clarify unknown words
  • Re-word the important facts in our own words

KEY OBSERVATIONS AND MY OWN WORDS

 

 

Synthesising: Hurricane Irma

Over the last 2 weeks we have been synthesising from non-fiction and fiction texts. This week we are going to watch a video from Behind the News to synthesise from. Remember when we synthesise we add to our thinking or change our thoughts about a topic, character or storyline.

The video from Behind the News is based on Hurricane Irma.

You will need to write down your before, during and after thinking. We will then put our thinking into a synthesising response.

Leigh Hobbs Author Study – Venn Diagram

Today you are going to make inferences about two Leigh Hobbs books and create a Venn diagram. You will need to infer what is different and similar about Old Tom and Fiona the Pig’s Big Day.

Watch and listen to the stories from the Story Box Library. You may want to track your thinking on a notepad while watching.

When you complete a Venn diagram you need to write what is different about both books on the outside and what is similar on the inside.
