Student Instructions

View the story from the video to the left - Joe and the Stars by Phil Cummings and Connah Brecon add label Phil Cummings has used many similes in the story to describe parts of Joe's life. Add a simile in each star that describes parts of your own life at the moment. mic Record yourself reading your similes if you would like to. Use the arrow if you like! check Activity 2: (Optional and fun for SCREEN FEE WEDNESDAY) Joe and his grandpa made a wind chime from tin and twine. Create a wind chime of your own using found items from around your home or school. Ask your parents to help you find metal or glass objects you can wash and use in your chimes from the recycling (be careful!!). Old keys, cutlery, and nuts and bolts all make lovely chiming sounds when assembled in a wind chime. Be sure to ask an adult to help you with anything that might have sharp edges, and clean your found objects well before using them! Hang your finished wind chime in a tree, or by your front door.
