Guided Reading

In your remote learning pack, you'll find 2 word power up sheets just like we do in guided reading in class.

Look through your new reading book from school - can you spot any interesting vocabulary that you might want to magpie?

E.g. from Gulliver's Travels I might pick navigation. Use to help.

Definition is what the word means; navigation means

"The process or activity of accurately ascertaining one's position and planning and following a route."

Word class means whether it's a noun, adjective, verb or adverb - I'd write noun, because navigation is a noun.

Synonyms is a word with very close or the same meaning, so I'd write words like exploration, passage, travel for mine.

Antonyms are words that mean the opposite, so I'd put lost, misguided.

Varied forms mean any words that are linked to it as past tense, present tense, different nouns - like navigator, navigates, navigated, navigating. 

Sentence means to use the word in a sentence, so I might write "A navigator called Juan Elcano was the first to sail his ship all the way around the world."

Draw it means just what it sounds like!

Good luck!
