HOW TO USE THIS BOOK

M

P

Days 1, 2 and 3 follow a consistent format, with a short piece of text and four corresponding items. These pages can be used to assess children’s engagement, phonological and phonemic awareness, vocabulary and comprehension.

A longer text is used for Days 4 and 5. On Day 4, children answer more in-depth questions that assess understanding of purpose, genre and voice as well as comprehension strategies and fluency and selfcorrection.

S A

The activity provided for Day 5 is a writing task in which children respond to the text explored on Day 4. This is an open task, allowing teachers or parents to use their own discretion as to which writing skills will be assessed.

Using the marking guide

Use the marking guide at the side of each practice page to check answers and see at a glance which skills may need more reinforcement. Circle the appropriate icon for each item to indicate correct

Has there been an earthquake? Did a bad storm hit? Did a hiker get lost on a mountain? That is when some dogs go to work. They are called search and rescue dogs. Dogs have a much better sense of smell than people have. They have been trained to use those noses. Dogs have found people buried under snow or buildings. They are real heroes!

Sometimes pets run away and get lost. Sadly, some pets get hit by a car. You can help to keep your pet safe. You can get them a collar with their name and address on it. You can have the vet put a tiny chip in a dog or cat. That chip tells who the animal belongs to. But the best thing to do is to keep the pet in the house or the garden. It is important to make sure they get enough exercise, so they are happy to stay at home.
