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.  
  • Now, write a review about your book and share with your class teacher.

   

 .......and remember, 'The more you READ, the more things you will know.'  Be awesome! Be a book nut!
