We will listen to a reading of the story today. I will share my screen with you and you can listen afterwards by following this link.

Principal Read Aloud - "The Patchwork Path: A Quilt Map to Freedom" by Bettye Stroud Principal Charlie Jett from Two Rivers - Dos Rios Elementary School in Springfield, Oregon reads aloud, "The Patchwork Path: A Quilt Map to Freedom," written and illustrated by Bettye Stroud.


1.Read the page above from the book. Look up these words in a dictionary, either online or in paper dictionary.





2. Look at how commas are used on this page. Why are they placed where they are? What job are they doing in the sentences?

3. Why are they going to pretend that they are loading a wagon?

4. Why are they going to run away on a stormy night?


Can you remember what has happened in the story so far. Who have we met, which characters, what has happened? What has happened to Hannah so far? Can you remember the events so far in chronological order?


Here are eight muddled up sentences. Can you write the events out in an email or in your book in chronological order?


Mama died.


During a storm, Papa and Hannah ran!


One day in spring, Papa said that Hannah should get her quilt and wrap some bread up in it.


Mama told Hannah that the quilt patterns held a secret code that would help them run to freedom.


We are introduced to Hannah who is ten years old and who is a slave on a plantation.


Mary, Hannah's sister was sold to a different master who lived on a plantation many miles away.


Papa memorised the roads around the plantation and found places where slaves could hide.


Mama and Hannah made a quilt out of old cloth.


You can email me the answers or write them in your book.

I have set some 2dos on commas for you to do if you finish. Check Purple mash. I have also set some tasks on LBQ if you have time this morning. I will email you all the code during our English lesson tomorrow.


Stay in touch, stay safe.
