The Funny Cake 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. Discuss 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 Ben is doing? Why? • Pages 3 -4: What time of the day do you think it is? Why? • Page 7: What do you think Pam is looking for in the box? • Pages 8-10: Describe your favourite hat. • Pages 11-20: Discuss the steps in making a cake. • Pages 21-24: Do you think they like the cake? What is your favourite cake? • Page 25: What do you think Pam and Ben are going to make now? Encourage your child to generate several ideas. 3. To help your child to connect with this text, you could also make a cake together and construct pictures using shapes cut out of coloured paper or using coloured shape stickers. 4. 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: As your child to flip through the 6 pages and quickly point out the word t ‘look’ every time it occurs. This activity is great for developing scanning skills to locate information quickly. • Day 2: What did Pam find in the toy box? Describe Pam’s hat. Describe Ben’s hat. t • Day 3: What do you think Mum is cutting up? What do you think they shake t onto the cake? • Day 4: Do you think Mum and Pam like the cake? How do you know? • Day 5: What is the problem with Pam’s plane? How does she get it to work? 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

A sentence is one idea. Every sentence starts with a capital letter. A full stop is used to show the end of the sentence. Read the story and put in the full stops and capital letters.

‘e’ goes away when ‘ing’ comes to stay or any other suffix beginning with a vowel (a, e, i, o, u and sometimes y). Add the suffixes to these words. SAMPLE + =wakeing + =cakes + =bakeer + =makeing + =shakeer + =planes • Note: When the suffix begins with ‘e’ (e.g., er, est, ed), the ‘e’ goes away and then comes back again. © 2015 Dr Lillian Fawcett & Julie Myers
