Grade 4

Books, for the mind

Module 3

A book display

Activity 1

To discuss and compare different opinions [lo 2.1.7]

To respond with and show respect to others [lo 2.2.5, 2.2.8]

What you need to do

  • As a group, decide on a theme. You could, for example, choose an author like Beatrix Potter and display a number of her books or you could choose a cartoon character like Garfield and display a variety of comic strips and annuals about him. You could even choose a topic like gardening and display books to encourage gardening as a hobby .
  • Collect your books/magazines/comics and plan your display.
  • Supply information cards so that the viewer can be guided to note special details of your display. Your teacher will supply the paper for the information cards.

The quiz

  • Set up the questions that your viewer will be able to answer from the information supplied on your display.

Activity 2

To treat others with respect in group work [lo 2.2.8]

To speak clearly and at a good pace [lo 2.3.3]

Speaking

FEED YOUR MIND AND SHARE YOUR SNACK WITH YOUR FRIENDS

What you will need

  • Your favourite book or story or character from a story
  • A two-minute presentation - no costumes at this stage (you will be timed, so practise this at home!)

What you will do

  • Bravely present your two minute “snack” to your group
  • Be creative and original – WOW your audience!
  • Sell your product!

What the group will do

  • Look and listen
  • Adjudicate - make a grid, like the example below, for each presenter.

1 = boring 2 = so-so 3 = good 4 = Oscar performance!

NAME:
  • Creativity and originality
1 2 3 4
  • WOW
1 2 3 4
  • Audibility
1 2 3 4
  • Audience contact
1 2 3 4

After every actor has had a chance to perform, vote for the Oscar Award Winner from your group. Cast your votes NOW. These actors then perform for the whole class to round off the “show”.

NEXT UP - You’ll have to do some homework.

Now don’t panic. All actors get to go home and study their script for the next day. Your teacher will supply the script (an Aesop’s Fable) and all you have to do is read it thoroughly. Be sure you know the storyline and characters. Imagine how you would stage the story. Practise some moves.For tomorrow you will have to discuss the scene with your group and pool your ideas. Yes, you are going to make the Fable come alive!

Tips

  • Make use of a storyteller (narrator).
  • Give every group member a part.
  • There is a two-minute time limit.
  • Energy and enthusiasm are vitally important.
