Turning A Short Text Into Your Own Words

Step 1: Read the text –

‘The Macedonian recipes are very diverse. Thanks to the enormous number of ingredients that are found in this country. In Macedonian cusine we use everything, from fruits, vegetables and dairy products to the various types of meats. The originality of the Macedonian dishes is assured by the development of the cooking techniques and by the use of the local ingredients. The Macedonian cuisine contains recipes for each course of a meal: appetizers, soups, meat dishes, salads, vegetarian dishes, desserts and snacks.’

Step 2: clarify any unknown words –

  • diverse – Showing a great deal of variety; very different.
  • enormous – Very large in size, quantity, or extent
  • ingredients – Any of the foods or substances that are combined to make a particular dish.
  • cusine – a style of cooking characterized by distinctive ingredients, techniques and dishes

Step 3: (this is what not to do) replace any unknown words with my new understandings. If you do this you have not changed everything you have read into your own words –

‘The Macedonian recipes are very different. Thanks to the very large number of the foods or substances that are combined to make a particular dish that are found in this country. In Macedonian style of cooking characterized by distinctive ingredients, techniques and dishes we use everything, from fruits, vegetables and dairy products to the various types of meats. The originality of the Macedonian dishes is assured by the development of the cooking techniques and by the use of the local ingredients. The Macedonian cuisine contains recipes for each course of a meal: appetizers, soups, meat dishes, salads, vegetarian dishes, desserts and snacks.

Step 3: (this is what you should do) write down some key points you remember from what you read (imagine you are telling someone what you read) –

  • big variety of foods
  • lots of different imgedients
  • many different recipes

Step 4: turn these main points into your own flowing paragraph, this is now in your own words –

The are a big variety of foods in Macedonia that you can make with lots of different ingredients which you can use to make lots of different recipes.

Today’s Reading Task

(Still images can be found here)

Work in pairs and choose a double page opening to complete the following response activities.

Analyze a picture and share your thinking about:

  • what you noticed
  • the effect the picture has on the viewer/story
  • how the illustrator achieved the effects

 

Next pretend you are a ‘fly on the wall’. Examine the facial expressions shown in the book and imagine what the frogs or other characters are thinking or saying to one another. Record the conversation or the thinking in an interesting way, e.g. using speech/thought bubbles in a comic strip
