Never Trust a Goat Workbook Dr Lillian Fawcett & Julie Myers

SAMPLEIns Instructions The Workbooks are designed to provide comprehension activities that compliment and build on the Learn to Read Books. It is envisaged that students will read 6 pages of the book each night and there are two comprehension/activity sheets that relate to those 6 pages. Outlined below are some recommended oral activities: 1. Read the title and look at the pictures. • Ask your child to predict what the story might be about. • Pages1-3: Why do you think Ben is looking angry? What do you think his mother is telling him to do? What do you think Ben does? • Pages 5-23: Remind your child that the coloured cloud indicates a dream sequence. • Pages 5-7: What has happened to Ben’s baseball? • Page 11: What do you think the goats might be eating? Encourage your child to generate several answers. Remember this is part of Ben’s dream so the answers don’t necessarily have to be logical. • Pages 13-17: What happens to the boat? Why do you think it sunk? • Page 27: What has Ben done now? What do you think his mum says? 2. Ask your child to read 6 pages each night. At the end of each set of six pages you can do the following activities or ask the questions. • Day 1: Ask your child to quickly find a different phrase on each page to help develop scanning skills. • Day 2: Draw parallels between Ben’s baseball and the pumpkin coach in Cinderella. Compare and contrast the two stories. Why was Tim upset and what did Ben do to help? t • Day 3: Why did the boat sink? What do you think will happen to Ben? Encourage your child to generate some different scenarios. • Day 4: How did Ben and Tim get back home? How would you describe the goats? Would you trust a goat? Why? t • Day 5: Why is Ben able to go to the baseball game? Why was he surprised t that he would be able to get to the game in time? Complete the activity sheets with your child and teach specific tcomprehension strategies such as going back into the story to check for the correct answer. © 2015 Dr Lillian Fawcett & Julie Myers
