Today we will be working on our comprehension strategies; making predictions, making connections and questioning. I have attached a short story called ‘The Cautious Caterpillar’ for the children to read aloud. Encourage the children to use their comprehension strategies while reading using the following language:
Predictions: I have a prediction/ I predict that_______
Connections: I connect with this story because________
Questioning: I wonder who/ what/ where/ when/ why/ how_______
Each strategy has a different hand gesture and I’ve attached a sheet showing each one so the children can practice using them.
In maths, we will be building on our skip counting work from last week. I have attached a worksheet below for the children to complete. If you get stuck, revisit the songs from last week to practice!
Here is a song that the children love to sing as Gaeilge in school. Ask them to teach you the moves! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wzfixw77FzQ
Have an incredible day!
