Simon’s Cat & HOTS
This is the first of my new batch of exercises as part of my Reading Pictures Strategy for improving the reading comprehension skills of struggling learners.
What is different about this new batch is that I’ve placed more emphasis on the HOTS (higher order thinking skills) which is now a major issue in high-schools.
I’ve added a category and a tag called “HOTS” to make these exercises easy to locate. In addition, they can also be downloaded from the blog page titled “Downloadable Goodies!”
The Simon’s Cat short videos are perfect for discussing the skill of “identifying patterns of behavior”. This cat most certainly exhibits clear patterns of behavior!
Here is the worksheet. You are welcome to adapt it to suit your needs. I would be delighted to hear what you do with it!
