Tuesday Week 8 (2nd June)

Reading fluency (15-30 mins): Read to self, read together OR read to me (Book Club text, another good fit book or Epic! https://www.getepic.com/)

Mrs Kenwright’s Epic! Code: ize9902

Tune in: Watch Mrs Buckle’s lesson – http://mrsbuckle.global2.vic.edu.au/2020/05/01/character-profiler-activity/

Learning Intention:

  • We are learning to find character traits using evidence from the text.

Success Criteria:

  • I can draw a detailed picture of my character.
  • I can find character traits of this character.
  • I can give evidence of this character trait by using the conjunction “because”

Character Profiler: Draw a picture of one character from your Book Club text. Write 3-5 character traits with evidence. (e.g. Auggie is brave because he goes to school even though he looks different.) Remember that character traits are NOT emotions – they are the personality of the character.

These character traits should be evident in the current assigned chapters. Complete this task on the Book Club sheet in your Remote Learning pack.
