Read your available BUG CLUB BOOK and answer the comprehension questions.

 

Remember to use your reading skills:

 

  • Fred Talk unfamiliar words. E.g- f-r-o-g
  • Slide the syllables together. E.g fr og becomes frog.
  • Chunk new words before putting them together to read. E.g book-let becomes booklet
  • Refer to the illustrations (pictures) for clues
  • Use the Read to me function to listen to the pronunciation of difficult words.
  • Re-read words and sentences you’re unsure of to grasp the meaning.
  • Most of all, write down new vocabulary and search for their meaning in dictionaries.
  • Make sure you answer all the comprehension questions (quiz questions). This will help you to interpret the meaning of what you have read and also to practise your decoding skills.  

 

Reading and writing-Book Making

 

Encourage your child to complete any of the activities below, during the holidays.

 

1.Read, Read, Read! (also on Bug Club!)

Read their favourite book or books, make props, draw pictures and write simple sentences about what they have read or heard. Your child can also make mini books, zig zag books using the pictures drawn or retell the story they’ve read or heard orally. You can take pictures of your child’s activity or record their story and share with their class teacher.

 

2. Do you love baking or planting? Help your child to bake or plant some seeds. Discuss the activity in-depth with your child. Then, encourage your child to sequence the activity by drawing, writing labels or sentences. Put the pictures together as a book and take photos to share with your child’s class teacher.

 

3. Children love to hear stories retold by their generations. Do you know of any folktales, traditional tales and legends and trickster tales? You can read or tell your child any of these stories and encourage them to retell the story through the creation of pictures or making zig-zag books.

 

4. Have you heard about the story of baby Jesus? You can watch the video online

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9mLipX3xuIw or read the story to your child encouraging them to retell the events in the story.

 

        

 

 

Please remember to share your mini books, zig-zag books, photos and pictures with your child’s class teacher on seesaw.
