Thursday 10/06 – Reading

Goal: I can identify and find the meaning of different nouns

First, press play to hear the book “A Mink, A Fink, A Skating Rink: What is a noun?”

Link:  A mink a fink a skating rink

Next, write down what you think the author’s purpose is for this text. Remember, sometimes an author wants to persuade, inform or entertain. Sometimes they might want to do a combination of these!

Then, Write down some of the interesting nouns from the book (in the table below), and write down what you think they mean.

Finally, Once you have completed this, use a dictionary to find the definition of the work and add it to your table! You might have a dictionary at home, or you can use this online dictionary here:

http://wordcentral.com/cgi-bin/student

When you look up a word in the dictionary, there might be more than one definition. Make sure today that you are looking at the ‘noun’ definition.

Noun I think it means… The dictionary definition says…
Example:

mill

 

A place where they make  flour

 

a building with machinery for grinding grain into flour

a machine used in treating (as by grinding, crushing, stamping, cutting, or finishing) raw material

mink
gown
mayor
chandelier

 

If you would like to, you could choose some different nouns from the book to record in your table.

Wednesday 09/06 – Writing

Goal: I can write a creative procedural text.

Today your task will be to create a procedural text, or set of instructions, that are a little unusual.

First, think about the features of a procedural text or set of instructions.

They usually tell you:

  • What you will learn to do
  • The materials or things you need
  • The steps to completing the task

In the example from today’s reading lesson, the writer also started with an introduction that tried to convince you why you would want to do that task.

Next, choose a task or activity to write your instructions for. You might choose a really boring or unpleasant task, and then write about it in a way that makes it sound like it’s exciting or fun!

Here are some options (or you can come up with your own):

  • How to unload the dishwasher
  • How to clean up after your dog/cat/pet/sibling
  • How to tidy your bedroom
  • How to make your bed
  • How to clean the sink
  • How to take out the bins
  • How to fold a fitted sheet

Then, write a set of instruction for why you would do it, the things you need, and what the steps are to completing the task. There is an example of how you might lay it out here: How to… example

Finally, if you are up for a challenge – make a video of yourself or someone in your house (if you can convince them) doing you oh so boring task, but convincing us that it is really fun!

(I know I would love for someone to make me a video about how to fold a fitted sheet)
