Integrating Spelling and Comprehension
The key word in our Smart Spelling lessons this week is ‘Shark’. To assist the children’s learning of this word as a whole group we read the picture storybook Shark in the Park.
In the book Shark in the Park a young boy called Timothy Pope looks through his telescope while at the park. This is when he discovers many different objects that look like a sharks fin. He then calls out to everyone Shark in the Park!
After reading the story the children made their own telescopes and used them to see what they could find in our school playground. They also tried to find a shark in our park. After spending time using their telescopes the children then wrote about their discoveries.
