Today I have been learning how to analyse texts and also we have summarized the text using the five finger words, (also known as the 5 W).
Five finger words:
Who is in the text? Granddaughter, Grandfather, Grandmother, Teacher, Neighbour
What is in the text? A story about the butterflies.
When did it happen? After school/The afternoon
Where did it happen?House/home
Why it happened?Suspicious that butterflies will kill.
How it happened? Sadly
This story is about a granddaughter that lives with her grandmother and grandfather. In the morning she goes to school and writes a story and comes back home in the afternoon. She soon explains to them about the story that she’d written at school about killing butterflies. She tells them that her teacher told her “Butterflies are beautiful creatures that fly through the sky and then die after the laying of their eggs.”
After a while of silence still in the garden, her grandfather tells her “Because you see your teacher, she buys all her cabbages from the supermarket and that’s why”.
