For reading homework today, children will be completing simplified double bubble maps -which, as the children quickly recognised, are similar to Venn Diagrams. A double bubble map is a thinking map which helps children to visually consider similarities and differences between two things (in this case characters from books). As children become more able, they can use more complex thinking maps; these can be translated into writing and further work.
In the first thinking map, children should find three/four differences between themselves and the main character in their book.They should also find two to three similarities.
In the second thinking map, children should find three/four differences between Cassie (ROTHMC) OR Zoe (Floodland) and the main character in their book.They should also find two to three similarities.
Please find below my completed map for the first task as an example. The task is quite an interesting one and may need parents to discuss with their children. It should promote deeper thinking-skills and self-awareness Insha’Allah
Have fun with this thought-provoking and challenging activity!
