Tim and the Fish 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. Look at the cover page and read the title. Ask your child who Tim might be and what the story might be about. This helps develop prediction skills and encourages the child to connect with the text. 2. Introduce the story by looking at all the pictures and discussing. There is not necessarily a correct answer for these questions. It is about helping your child develop prediction skills. • Pages 1 & 2: What do you think is the relationship between Pam and Ben? • Pages 3-6: What pet would you like? What would you buy for your pet? • Pages 7-10: What animals could you buy at a pet shop? What animals wouldn’t you be able to buy at a pet shop? Why? • Pages 11 & 12: Ben and Pam ask for their pets, but the way they ask is not very polite. How could they have they been more polite? • Pages 13 & 14: What would you have called the dog and the cat? Why? • Page 18: Why wouldn’t Ben get his dog a fish? What food would you buy for a dog? • Pages 21 & 22: Could you give a cat the fish whole like this? Why? • Pages 23-28: How would you describe Tim? How would you get Tim to give you the fish? 3. 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. t • Day 1: As your child to flip through the 6 pages and quickly point out the word ‘Pam’ every time it occurs. This activity is great for developing scanning skills to locate information quickly. • Day 2: What did Pam buy? Where in the text does it say that? t • Day 3: Why wouldn’t it be good to give fish to a dog? t • Day 4: How do you think Pam is feeling? Why? Discuss a range of emotions that Pam might be feeling (e.g., angry, upset, mad, sad…). • Day 5: Why do you think Tim wouldn’t give the fish back? Encourage your child to provide several answers. t Complete the activity sheets with your child and teach specific comprehension strategies such as going back into the story to check for the correct answer. © 2015 Dr Lillian Fawcett & Julie Myers
