A BIG thank you to everyone for all their hard work and contributions to the blog over the last couple of months.

English- Keep reading as often as you can – your child reading to you and you sharing picture books with your child – discussing the storyline, characters and language used. Can you spot and talk about new words? Can you use these in your own sentences?
Continuing with the theme of plants Frog Belly Rat Bone is a great book to use as a stimulus for writing. You can find someone online reading it if you don’t have your own copy.
Ideas to then do and these can be applied to any story you may choose –
Read the story. Really get to know the story by acting it out or making stick puppets of the characters and using these to perform parts of the story.
Recite a part of the story – can you add expression or actions to your speaking.
Draw a map of the story – Story Map
Write the story
Look at a picture of cement land/or the setting of your story think of adjectives to describe it.
Write sentences about Cement Land/setting
Describe a character in the story.
Look at the picture of the boy finding the treasure box. What might he say? Write this in a speech bubble.
Imagine the boy and Frog Belly Rat Bone meeting. What might they say to each other? Write in speech bubbles.
Can you write a story about when you visit Cementland – Can you change it?? How??
All of these ideas you can use with any story.
