by Margaret Mahy; illustrated by Philip Webb This text is levelled at Green 2.
In this humorous narrative, Mum asks the family to help her clean out the car. Mum’s frustration builds as one family member after another says they are too busy looking for their lost belongings. Finally, she manages to convince the family that this is important and, as they all work together on the car clean-out, they discover the items they have lost. The story has a theme of co-operation and the benefits of keeping things tidy. Much of the story is conveyed through dialogue, with the illustrations, layout, and punctuation supporting the meaning and adding to the humour.
Students are likely to be able to draw on their own similar experiences to make connections to the context and setting, providing opportunities for them to make simple inferences and form hypotheses. The following example highlights the sorts of reading behaviours teachers could expect to observe in students who are meeting the standard. Sometimes these behaviours will be in response to teacher prompts and questions, and sometimes they will be spontaneous as the students notice and respond to the ideas in the text. These behaviours may occur during the first or subsequent readings and discussions.
