I will be reading a text to you three different times. Make sure that you are listening carefully. Pay special attention to where you believe punctuation (full stops, commas, question marks, quotations) should go.
Reading #1: Just listen.
Reading #2: Take notes. Then, with a partner, use your notes to rewrite the text that was read to you.
Reading #3: Take notes again, but this time listen carefully for things you missed in your reconstruct.

Alone.Crash hello is anyone there?” I call into the darkness.When all of a sudden Mums spotted cat comes tearing across the kitchen floor into my arms.purr purr I'm glad I have someone is home to great me.
