    Learn the poem

    Slowly Slowly the tide creeps up the sand,
    Slowly the shadows cross the land.
    Slowly the cart-horse pulls his mile,
    Slowly the old man mounts his stile.
    Slowly the hands move round the clock,
    Slowly the dew dries on the dock.
    Slow is the snail – but slowest of all
    The green moss spreads on the old brick wall.

    This week’s focus:
    Lesson 3 Fable Refresher

    In preparation for Schole support class:

    * CONSIDER SHARING YOUR JACK THE GIANT STORY AT THE END OF OUR CLASS!! So far I’ve read some fabulous stories!*

    Fable-Review what a fable is, p 25 last paragraph

    Read through p 26. Ask your student to narrate back to you what they heard and work on order of events

    **An idea for fable reading could be in Morning time, if that is a practise in your home. IF you have other children, they too could practise narration, and this would be a great introduction, as well as opportunity for your student to be more ready for the lesson later

    To be completed this week:
    Complete P 28-34

    IF your student wishes, he or she can do either
    The summary of the fable
    Or
    The amplification

    Do not spend more than 20 minutes on this.

    We will look at the writing of the fable in class.
