Read this story at least two days in a row. By the third day, you should be very accurate and sound very fluent (reading smoothly, like talking). Click on the picture of the title page to begin to read the book. Read each page to your parent, babysitter, or an older sibling - if you get stuck on a word, try to make the sounds in the word - if you can’t work it out, your helper can tell you the word after you’ve had a try at it. After you read each page, your helper can ask you the questions at the bottom of each page and talk about those with you. When you have read the book two or three times, do the activity template (with a recording ) so I can hear how you sound as you read! OPTIONAL: follow-up: Choose one: 1. The methods that Dad, Mum and Grandad talk about using are known as ‘old wives’ tales’, meaning that people thought they would work but it wasn’t always true. Can you make up your own ‘recipe’ for getting rid of warts? Write it as a Note or record a video telling me your ‘recipe’. It can be as imaginative as you like - but just write or say it (I do not want you to go and try to make it!) 🥴 OR 2. How many ways can potatoes be eaten or used? Make a list and share as a Note or a video or a photo (as per the instructions for number 1).
😊Record yourself reading this page once you think you are sounding fluent (smooth and accurate) and expressive (making your voice interesting).
