Honey, I Shrunk the Kids!

Honey, I Shrunk the Kids!

Question time!

What noise do you think the rock might be making as it rolls?

How will the children escape?

What else will the tiny children encounter?

If you could have any super-power that could help people in some way, what would it be?

Think about the giant pebble chasing the children. Have you ever been faced with a dangerous situation or a big problem?

If so, how did you deal with it?

What advice would you give to people when dealing with their problems?

Perfect picture!

Imagine you are one of the children. Can you draw what you might be able to see? Perhaps you are in the garden, or on the kitchen table, or inside somebody's lunch box! Remember: you're really small!

Story starter!

Dad’s home science experiment had gone horribly wrong! He had zapped the kids in the garden with his new ELECTROZORBTASTICLASERJETBRAIN-GUN, which was supposed to make his three children the smartest children in the entire world. Instead, the zap had back-fired, making Dad even more brainy, but the children…Extremely tiny!

Stood in the middle of the garden path, they suddenly found themselves running as fast as they could away from a rolling pebble (which was actually tiny, but now seemed as big as a house).

Sentence challenge!

When you finish your writing can you make a tally chart showing how many times you have used the following word classes: noun, adjective, verb, adverb.

A noun is an object or thing. An adjective is a describing word. A verb is an action, and an adverb describes the verb.

Sick sentences!

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

The stone started to go. The children ran. They felt scared.
