LC: I can build a wide vocabulary.
Draw a small picture of the funnybones town in the middle of your paper.
Today we are thinking of words that have a similar meaning to ‘dark’ or ‘scary’ but are more interesting and descriptive.
Think of words that could be used to describe the funnybones town and write them around your picture.
If you would like a challenge, you could google ‘scary thesaurus’ and this will show you a range of interesting descriptive words you could use in your writing which have a similar meaning to the word ‘scary’.
Miss Brooks explains what to do in the video below.

LC: I can ask questions.
Listen to the story of Funnybones and then ask some questions about the story. Use the deeper questioning grid to help you.
Ask your questions aloud to someone else in your house, or have a go at writing some of them down if you would like a challenge.

LC: I can clarify vocabulary.
Today we are going to talk about what some of the words in Funnybones mean. Write down each word below one at a time, think about what it might mean, then draw a picture.
If you are unsure what any of the words mean, you can use the story of Funnybones to help you clarify them.
Watch the video below of Miss Brooks demonstrating what to do.
