Our Kidpix work

In reading time we had to use Kidpix and be creative with the stories "The Cat in the Hat" or "The Lorax" We could either compare and contrast the two stories, write facts that we knew about one of the stories or we could even turn The Lorax into The Cat.

Can you see from our last post which one was which?

Cat in the Hat and The Lorax

We are learning to compare the stories The Cat in the Hat and The Lorax.

Here is what we think:

THE CAT IN THE HAT

The Cat likes fun and is naughty (Tessa)
Tidy up yourself (Kaea)
He's bossy (Chelsea)
We need to tidy up when we have finished (Andrew)
Message is Respect other's property (Helena)
Make sure you listen to other peoples opinions (Jack)
The fish is mad at the cat - he is like our conscience (Peter)


THE LORAX

He's bossy (Chelsea)
Message: Respect the environment (Helena)
Message: Respect the planet (Jack)
Moral: Don't cut down too many trees then it will become polluted (Andrew)
Sometimes things aren't what they seem - he thinks it a big opportunity but ends up not being one (Tessa)
Made up words (Kaea)

What are the same in these stories? Please comment for us
