Ask children to use words from the word lists to make up their own sentences and then illustrate and share these with the class. e.g. Fat cats sleep in the garden.

*Note: You may wish to expand the sentences further by asking: When?

e.g.

in the morning at night before midnight every night

e.g.

because they are hungry because they are happy to stay warm and cosy to keep clean

or Why?

Teaching Notes

• Read a story and ask for solutions:

Where’s Twinkle? Jessica’s foot caught in the plastic bag. She slid across the kitchen floor and the rice crispies spilled everywhere. “Jessica!“ her mum shouted, “Go to your room!“ Jessica stormed off to her room and flopped on her bed. Twinkle, who had been napping on the rug, lifted his chin and stared at Jessica, his eyes still half-closed. Something was wrong. He jumped up on to the bed and rubbed his head on her sleeve.

r o e t s Bo r e p ok u S

“It’s not fair Twinkle,“ Jessica sulked, “I didn’t know the bag was there.” Jessica stroked his back gently. Twinkle purred. His green eyes shone. He knew something was going on. The whole house was topsy-turvy and littered with boxes and paper.

Teac he r

ew i ev Pr

“Don’t worry Twinkle…we’ll be going to our new home tomorrow and then everything will be back to normal. Mum and dad won’t be so grouchy then, I hope!“ Jessica added quietly. She sat cross-legged on the bed. Her lap made a warm comfortable seat for Twinkle. Jessica loved Twinkle from the day he first came to her home on her fifth birthday. Mum had picked him because she loved the small ginger kitten with his white splotchy feet which looked like tiny socks. Early next morning, mum placed a folded towel in the cat box. She lifted Twinkle and carefully placed him inside. A quick drive to the vet where Twinkle would get a needle to make him drowsy for the long drive and they were off to their new home.

© ReadyEdPubl i cat i ons •f orr evi ew pur posesonl y•

The new home was different and exciting - the removal van arrived with the furniture and boxes. Twinkle was left outside in the basket on the front verandah. Jessica ran from room to room. “Wow, this is cool!“ thought Jessica. The whole day was spent opening boxes, cleaning and filling draws and cupboards.

w ww

m . u

It wasn’t till later that afternoon that Jessica remembered Twinkle. She skipped out to the verandah. The lid of the basket was open. “Twinkle… Twinkle… little star,“ sang Jessica. But Twinkle did not come running. “Twinkle!“ called Jessica. Mum and dad helped her look for him.

. te

“He’s probably just exploring the garden,“ mum said.

o c . che e r o t r s super

Morning came, but still no Twinkle. Jessica, her mum and dad, walked up and down the street looking under bushes and calling his name. Poor Twinkle was probably curled up asleep somewhere, sleeping off the effect of the needle. Would he be able to find his way back to Jessica?

Teaching Notes

• Missing Posters: Ask children for suggestions as to what else Jessica can do to find Twinkle, e.g. door knock, missing posters, continue searching the street. Suggest they make a Missing Cat poster which could be delivered to letterboxes in Jessica’s street. Discuss and draw up a sample format on the blackboard. Reread parts of the story if necessary to obtain information about colour, etc. Ask children to draw up their own poster with an illustration of Twinkle, e.g. LOST! H

1. Introductory Activities

w ww

• Good Fairy’s Message (scroll): Tell children you have found a scroll on your desk. Open and display scroll. Read together. Ask questions. “Who has written this?” “What does it mean?” “Shall we try and follow the message to see if it comes true?” “I’d love to have three wishes, wouldn’t you?”

. te

o c . che e r o t r s super

• Magic Wand sheet (Page 27): Use the sheet to make a wand. Refer children back to the good fairy’s message. “The message says we need a magic wand. Let’s make one.” Ask children to colour the stars and wand using rainbow colours. Glue stars back to back. Roll the wand into a tight scroll and glue. Staple star to wand and then decorate with glitter. • Abra-ca-dabra game: “Let’s try our wands to see if they really work.” Children stand in a circle with their wands. Choose one child (IT) to stand in the centre. As children walk/ skip/hop/jump around in the circle, IT calls out a rhyme: Abra-ca-dabra, Kal-a-mazoo. I’m turning you all into lions at the zoo. Everyone assumes the shape, movement and sound of a lion. The best lion is then chosen to be IT and so on, choosing a different animal each time. Page 24

Teaching Notes

2. Application Activities

• Verse - Starlight, Starbright (Page 28): Refer back to the fair y ’s message. “We have our wands. Next we’ll have to learn the special verse.” Children recite the rhyme. If using as a worksheet, children also colour the star, adding glitter to make it sparkle. • Whole Class Discussion: Discuss the sorts of wishes they would like to make and how it is also kind to make wishes for others. List some of these wishes on the blackboard in three groups, e.g.

r o e t s Bo r e p ok u S

Wishes for Myself I could fly. Have a puppy. Have a cubby house.

Wishes for my Friend Can sleep over. Can get better. Have a bike too.

Wishes for my Family Go on holiday. Have a new car. Grandparents will visit.

Teac he r

ew i ev Pr

• Three Wishes (Page 29): Children write in their wishes, colour around them, cut them out and glue them to ‘The Secret Wishing Tree’ (without writing their name).

3. Consolidation Activities

• Secret Wishing Tree: Read some of the wishes on the tree aloud to the class.

• Make a Wish: Refer back to the fairy’s message. “We’ve made our wands. We know the verse. We’ve written our wishes. Let’s wave our wands and say the verse. Then close your eyes and if we really believe it, maybe they’ll come true. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.” • Extension: 1. Draw what you think the good fairy looks like. 2. Write a story and draw a picture about your wishes coming true.

Materials

• I Saw a Ship a-Sailing (Page 42) • Parts of a Ship (Page 43) • Captain Duckfoot’s Orders (Page 44)

r o e t s Bo r e 1. Introductory Activities p ok u S

• Brown paper lunchbags (one per two children) or drawing paper, pencils, felt pens, coloured pencils, glue, scissors, string or ribbon.

ew i ev Pr

Teac he r

• I Saw a Ship a-Sailing (Page 42) Nursery rhyme: Read aloud and recite the nursery rhyme. Discuss the meaning of key words, e.g. sails, mast, hold, four and twenty. Locate rhyming words. Check comprehension by asking questions such as “What sorts of ‘pretty things’ might the ship be carrying?”, “What sort of ship do you think it is?”, “Where do you think the ship is sailing to?” Ask children to colour the ship and draw more sailors on board.

• Parts of a Ship (Page 43) Labelling: Discuss parts of a ship already mentioned in the nursery rhyme. Discuss new words, e.g. bow, stern. Children complete the sheet by cutting out and gluing words to correct parts. Children can then draw in the pirate captain and some of his crew.

© ReadyEdPubl i cat i ons 2. Application Activities f orr ev ew puchildren r postand seins oown nl y• • Game• - Captain’s Crew: Toi play the game, their space, then listen to and follow the pirate commands given randomly:

“Climb the rigging.” (climbing action); “Scrub the deck.” (on hands and knees and scrubbing);

. te

“Man overboard.” (one hand at forehead and step forward);

m . u

“Captain’s coming.” (stand to attention and salute);

o c . che e r o t r s super

“Walk the plank.” (eyes closed and hands behind back); “Man the lifeboats.“ (rowing action).

• Captain Duckfoot’s Orders (Page 44): Using the symbols at the top of the sheet, children decode Captain Duckfoot’s secret message: Answer: “Ahoy Matey. Hand over the treasure map or walk the plank!”

• Treasure Map: On the blackboard model the making of a treasure map with the whole class. See next page for example.

Teaching Notes

3. Consolidation Activities

• Treasure Map Lucky Dip: Once their maps are completed, ask children to roll them into a scroll and tie with string or ribbon. All children are to place scrolls into a large basket, then each pair pulls out a scroll to open, read and follow in order to find the treasure. Be sure to tell the children that Captain Duckfoot will not require them to walk the plank, as they have provided him with enough treasure maps to keep him sailing and treasure hunting for the rest of his pirate life.
