Discuss: Are the predictions the same as the story? What's different? What's the same?
Can they remember the title of the story? Can they talk about some of the events in the story?
Purpose: To use their phonics knowledge to write words.
Vocabulary: food, labels, sweet, chilli, red, hot
Have some food items or use food items from the story, encouraging your child to name them. Tell your child that you are going to write labels for some of the foods in the story.
Ask your child to choose their favourite food. Say its name and model using sounds to write the name.
For example, food: f-oo-d; food, chilli: ch-i-ll-i; chilli.
Ask your child to repeat this process after you.
Activity: Go through the other food names using the same strategy to help your child write labels for the selected foods. First they name the food, fred talk the sounds in the word. Then write the word.
Extension: Encourage your child to add adjectives to describe the food items.
