Greedy!

Greedy!

Question time!

What do you think the rat is thinking at this exact moment?

Imagine you are the rat. What would you do next?

Who do you think the fruit is for?

Who do you think it is that has discovered the rat? If you discovered him, what would you do?

What is the best way for the rat to carry the fruit back to his home?

If the rat had a son and a daughter, do you think he should let them go with him when he is gathering food?

Perfect picture!

Imagine what the rat’s home looks like. Can you draw or describe what you have imagined?

Story starter!

He just couldn’t help himself: he had always been greedy.

Up until this moment he had lived his life without ever been noticed by a human. Now, that was about to change…

Sentence challenge!

Can you write a compound sentence, where a colon separates two independent clauses?

The first independent clause describes something and the second gives extra detail.

E.g. The rat was greedy: he had never been able to control himself when it came to eating.

Sick sentences!

These sentences are ‘sick’ and need help to get better. Can you help?

The rat put his paws on the fruit. He looked up with his eyes and whiskers.
