This week we are going to enjoy the story
“Slowly, slowly, slowly,” said the Sloth
by Eric Carle.
First watch the story being read by following this link
Now you have enjoyed the story look more carefully at the part where Eric Carle uses some amazing adjectives to describe the Sloth. You may have to look up the meaning of some of the words he uses – I know I did!! Think about why Eric Carle used certain adjectives. How does it help you as the reader?
Here are some reminders of what adjectives are and how to use them!
Now we’d like you to show us how good you are at using adjectives by describing some of the other animals in the story.
We have also given you some helpful idea sheets which may help you with some adjective ideas!
Maybe after you have thought of lots of wonderfully descriptive adjectives you could use them to write a poem or a story about one of your chosen animals.
We have included lots of different sheets that you may want to record your work on. Or you may be happy to write on plain paper and do your own illustrations!!
Here are some fun activities for some of you who may find it helpful to be practising your phonics
There is also a reading comprehension about the rainforest if you’d like to give it a try. If you look carefully you may spot that they give the top layer of the Rainforest a different name! Again, choose which level you think is best for you!!
