Week 4 January 25th 2021
Before looking at this week's book, ask your child to recall the features and characteristics of dragons that we have discussed over the last few weeks. Then ask them to consider princesses. Princesses are pretty, wear beautiful dresses, have lovely manners etc.
Then read this week's book, Zog.
Literacy and Communication and Language
Monday - Read/watch the story of Zog. Listen to the fact that the story is written in rhyming pairs. Rhyming words sound the same at the end of the word. They don't need the same spelling pattern to rhyme. Can you spot the rhyming words in Zog? Below is an online game you can play to see if you can spot the rhyming words.
Below are two rhyming challenges. One a simple pairs game and the other a greater challenge of writing down the rhyming pairs from the story, the first pair has been done for you:
Madam Dragon ran a school many moons ago.She taught young dragons all the things that dragons need to know.
Wednesday - Now we have listened to the story of Zog for several days.
I would like you to write a review of the story.
- Draw a picture of Zog
- Write about what ‘Zog is…’ (Complete the description sheet to help you with some ideas)
- Write a sentence about or draw a picture of your favourite part
- Give it a star review out of 5.
Can you help Princess Pearl and complete her Medical Record for Zog? You will need to cut out the pictures and stick them into the correct place for skill, problem and medical help.
Challenge! Can you complete the missing sentences on the medical record? Use your phonics or the word bank to help you. Can you think of any more accidents that could have happened to poor Zog?
The Dragons got a gold star when they were the best in class. Can you make a medal that Zog would like to win? Maybe you can award it to yourself when you try a new skill.
