Reading week  2 Term 1 2018
This week’s goals:
Learn: How to recognise, ask and answer literal questions.
Success criteria:
Read texts and be able to think of a literal question based on that text.
Use the key words What, Where, Who and When as sentence starters for your literal questions.
Answer literal questions posed by other people.
Create:   DLOs on which to record answers to questions/activities based on the Treaty of Waitangi. (from several sources).
Scroll down for more information and links
On Monday of this week you will be working independently. Go to this document and follow the instructions. You need to read texts attached to the page so that you can answer the questions and create your own DLO to show your learning.
Tuesday: Waitangi Day-You will not be at school.
Wednesday:  You will have a workshop with your teacher.

In order to show that you have met the learning goals above you need to do 2 things with this sheet.

Step 1. Find your named box and write a literal question that could be answered by someone who has just read your text about the Treaty of Waitangi. Step 1 will be completed while you are with the teacher.

Ronan - When was the treaty signed? Feb 6 1840
Lawrence - Who was the first Maori to sign the treaty ? Hone Heke

2. Once all of you have written a literal question in your own box, you each need to make a copy of this document.  Put your copy into your Reading folder in your Google drive. Using your new document, you need to answer each literal question until every box on your new document includes a literal question and its answer.  You will complete Step 2 independently after you have left the teacher. Tomorrow you will have another session with your teacher and your work will be marked.

                My Waitangi Day
              
“Aaa Ggghh, I’m boooored!” I moaned as the car came to a stop. It was Waitangi day and as always it was busy. Lucy, Ngaz, Nana, Mum and me were in the car sweating like pigs while we waited in an ENORMOUS line on the road to get to the shuttle. Finally, we made it to the car park after an HOUR probably. The car come to a stop for the last time and we all came racing out of the car to get some fresh air. My feet touched the lush green grass in the paddock  “Ahhhh” I said in relief as the breeze passed through my body. “Grubby!” I laughed as I pointed to the back of a car that had the word grubby on it. We all laughed and made our way towards the gate. “ANOTHER LINE! THIS ONE IS EVEN BIGGER!” I shouted as we walked across the road to the shuttle line. “Waitangi day better be worth all my walkin today” I said in an annoying way. We made it to the bus and jumped in and surprisingly Jodey was driving our bus. We got to the bus stop and came out, it was even hotter. We watched the Navy people play and we watched 21 guns salute which was so exciting for me since I have never seen it before. We were all puffed out after getting some fresh baked fry bread for lunch and so we headed home. “I enjoyed my day thanks mum and nana,” I said smiling.
