Literacy – skills lesson

 

We are using a new book to help our home learning this week called ‘Just Ducks’ by Nicola Davies.

Here is a video of her reading her book, we hope you will practise making your best duck noises as you listen!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tqC18_bVTnk

 

Our skill today is going to be putting words in alphabetical order and also we will be using dictionaries. Don’t worry if you don’t have a dictionary at home, we are going to be using an online children’s dictionary which sometimes has pictures to help!

 

Task number one 

Can you put these words into alphabetical order? Remember alphabetical order is the order the letters come in the alphabet e.g. a b c d e f g h … so ‘cat’ is before ‘dog’ in the alphabet.

waddling

preening

drake

nesting

 

Below is the link for the online dictionary that we will be using to find out what different duck words mean. You only ever need ‘Definition 1’ which is the first explanation of what it means. You need to type your word in the box on the left and press the blue ‘go’ button when you are done.
