Cloze activity

Cloze activity

I am learning how to do a cloze activity to help me with my reading
Being able to make logical predictions about what word would fit correctly into a sentence is a successful reader strategy.

So What?
We use the following procedures:
  1. Read the whole text so that we can get an overall picture of the text.
  2. Re-read the text and think of words that would fit into the gaps. Write them down
  3. Look at the word list for this activity and see if I am correct / make changes

P = I need a little help. I prefer to look at the word list rather than have a go to predict the missing words. I have some confidence

Keeping Ourslelves Safe

What? I am learning to make safe decisions.

So what? it will help me and others keep safe.

Now what? if you don't like actions people are doing to you tell them you don't like it.
