You can listen to me read, read along with me or turn off the sound and read yourself. You choose your challenge.

English activities:

Today I would like you to read the chapter (either listen to me read, read with me or turn the sound off so you can read).  Then I would like you to do three different activities:

  • Inference.  How do the children feel?  How do you know?  You could do what we've done in class and draw an outline picture of them and write their feelings inside and the evidence (what they do and say) outside.
  • Grammar.  Look at all the punctuation.  I can see ""!.,;'- all on the first page.  You could read the page and use kung fu punctuation moves while you read.
  • Writing.  You should write their conversation on the way home where they talk about silly pub names.  "Don't forget your speech punctuation," said Mr. Cuthbert.

e.g. As they walked home the children laughed and joked.  Zac laughed and said, "The best name for a pub would be________________."
