Hi there,
would it be possible to get this resource for other year levels? Like year 4 and 6.
Thanks Sarah

On page 1 aren’t there two possible answers for question 3 and 4? scattered and scatters are both correct depending on what tense the sentence is. Also question 4 flew and flies are both correct depending on past or present tense.

Hi Lara,
I’m so sorry for the delayed response. This resource is intended to be read as a whole story. So the first two sentence use words that give the students the idea that it should all be written using past tense. I hope that clears it up for you. Thanks for your comment.

The story is within the text on the worksheets.
The students select or insert the correct word to complete each sentence.
If you have any further questions, please contact us at [email protected].
