Week beginning 7.12.20

This week you will be looking at Mog's Christmas Calamity by Judith Kerr. 

Monday - Today your skill is prediction

Has anyone heard of Mog before or read any of the books?

Can you make a prediction based on the front cover?

What do you think Mog might do?


Tuesday - Today your skill is sequencing 

We would like you to watch the story via the link below and then create a story map to sequence the story. 


Wednesday - Today your skill is comparing 

Today we would like you to watch this video of Mog's adventure. It is the same story just made in a different way. 

Can you tell me;

What is the same?

What is different?

Can you think of a different story that has been turned from a book into a film or video?
