We have been reading the book "Nothing" by Mike Inkpen.
The children have been being super readers this week. They have tried really hard at building up a picture in their mind. They have begun to visualize what the character "Nothing" might be. Some children thought "Nothing" might be a Tiger. Some though he might be a cat.
The children then looked at pieces of the text and together we found words they were not sure of and found the definitions. Just like super readers would!
The children have started to ask questions e.g. "I wonder where the cat in the story has come from, or is he lost?".
We have made a great start on becoming super readers!
We have been reading Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.
A visualisation of:
“Suddenly, Scrooge’s bed curtains were drawn aside, and he found himself staring at a strange figure. It had the hair of an old man, and the face of a young child. It was wearing a white tunic decorated with summer flowers. A bright jet of light shone from its head. The figure held a cone-shaped cap.”
