This week we are reading...

 

 10 Things I Can Do To Help My World

 

Today we will be focusing on vocabulary.

There are lots of new and tricky words in our book this week .

Listen to the story again and write down any words that you don't understand. It is really important that we find out what new words mean. We should always try to learn as many new words as possible!

Here are some  tricky words that I found while reading the book. 

efficient 

valuable

nesting 

reduce

air pollution

replace

reuse 

When you have written your list, find out the meaning of the words you don't understand. You can use a dictionary if you have one or use the internet. 

Here is a great online dictionary for children. It also has a new 'Word of the Day' which you could use to learn new words every day! 

Britannica Kids

 

When you have found the meaning of your new word, use the worksheet below to help you to use the word in different ways.
