This** whole class guided reading** activity is used to support the story, Can’t You Sleep Little Bear? by Martin Waddell .
This is for using the strategy for whole class guided reading, explained here:
The book has a list of vocabulary with an attached powerpoint; a section retell; guided reading questions and answers and two extension activities.
It was aimed at Key Stage 1 children.
It covers the following National Curriculum learning objectives:
-develop pleasure in reading, motivation to read, vocabulary and understanding by:
listening to, discussing and expressing views about a wide range of contemporary and classic poetry, stories and non-fiction at a level beyond that at which they can read independently
-becoming increasingly familiar with and retelling a wider range of stories, fairy stories and traditional tales
-drawing on what they already know or on background information and vocabulary provided by the teacher
-making inferences on the basis of what is being said and done
-answering and asking questions
-predicting what might happen on the basis of what has been read so far
-using dictionaries to check the meaning of words that they have read
-checking that the text makes sense to them, discussing their understanding, and explaining the meaning of words in context.
