PM Reader Challenge – The Trip to Rocky Ridge

For this task you need to do some reading out loud.

You will record a video of yourself reading the first page of your PM Reader.
At the SAME TIME you will use the Voice Typing feature on this Google Doc.

This will give you an opportunity to hear how you read, and to see how accurate your pronunciation is.

Start your Voice Typing here: The trip to Rocky Ridge I love going to visit Aunt Bonnie.

What would have lived in a salt lake millions of years ago?
Probably dinosaurs and lots of extinct animals.

Why would train drivers have to be careful in dust storms?
Because the windows might get covered in dust making the train drivers can’t see.

Why would a cow have wandered onto the rail track?
Because of the dust storm, The cow was probably in the farm and then the wind unlocked the gate making the cow can’t see and making it wander onto the rail track.

Because Clare told the twins what time they would arrive and then Nate rang Aunt Bonnie and told her what happened.

My Photopea GIF for literacy

Malo E Lelei, this is my photopea gif for literacy.
How I made it: So, I drew it on photopea separately and then took screenshots of it, after that I used a GIF converter and inserted the screenshots into it. (GIF converter is where you can insert videos or images to make it a GIF)
