  28. 3-100 Read the passage. Use a brief sentence to summarize what the passage is saying. 1 - 100 I love the first page of a new notebook. I write the date crisply. My whole name marches exactly along the line. The spaces are always even. The commas curl just so. I never have to erase on the first page. Never! $100

  29. 3-100A 1 - 100 The main idea is someone who like to keep their new notebook very clean. $100

  30. 3-200 Read the passage. Use a brief sentence to summarize what the passage is saying. When I get to the middle, there are lots of eraser holes. The corners are dog-eared. Whole paragraphs have been crossed out. My words slide off the lines and crowd together. I wish it was done. $200

  34. 3-400 Read the passage. Use a brief sentence to summarize what the passage is saying. Did you know that there is more than one spoken Chinese language? For thousands of years, someone who spoke only Cantonese (a dialect, or variation, of Chinese) could not understand someone who spoke Mandarin (a different dialect). Yet both could read the same writing. But if each read the same writing aloud, it sounded like two different languages. Puzzling, isn’t it? This happened because the Chinese language has evolved to include hundreds of dialects. These dialects sound as different from each other as English sounds from German. Yet written, they are all the same. $400

  35. 3-400A 1 - 100 There is more than one spoken Chinese language, yet they are all written the same. The variations which have evolved into hundreds of dialects make it so they are difficult to understand when they are spoken, but not when they are read. $400

  36. 3-500 Looking at the graph, write a brief summary. Australian Unemployment Rate % $500 Year

  37. 3-500A 1 - 100 1. Only over 10% twice in 25 years. 2. Unemployment highest from 1992 - 1994 3. The uneployment rate has been going down steadily since 2001 $500

  38. 4-100 1 - 100 One Saturday morning Abby's Mum came upstairs to see Abby in her bedroom. Or tried to. There was so much mess on the floor she could only poke her head around the door. Abby sat in the middle of it all reading a book.      "What a tip," Mum said. "You need to have a clear up in here."      "Why?" Abby asked.      "Why?" Mum repeated. "Because things get broken or lost when they're all willy-nilly like this. Come on, have a tidy up now."      "But I'm very busy," Abby argued, "and it's boring on my own. Can't you help me?"      "No I can't, I'm busy too. But I'll give you extra pocket money if you do a good job." On the next slide will be a connection. What kind of a connection do you see? $100

  39. 4-100A 1 - 100 In the story, the mom is very busy and can’t help her daughter clean up her messy room. It reminds me of my own daughters. I get so busy that I usually don’t have time to help them clean, and they don’t like to do it without me. When I think about the character in the story, I really feel sorry for her because I know how my daughters must feel when I tell them I am too busy. $100

  40. 4-200 Outside, yellow, gold, and red leaves were leaping from swaying trees, landing on the roof, jumping off the roof, and then chasing one another down the street in tiny whirlwinds of merriment.      Tommy watched in fascination.      "If I was a leaf, I would fly clear across the world," Tommy thought and then ran out into the yard among the swirl of colors.      Mrs. Pennington came to the front porch.      "Tommy, I have your jacket. Please put it on."      However, there was no Tommy in the front yard.      "Tommy?"      Tommy was a leaf. He was blowing down the street with the rest of his play-mates. On the next slide will be a connection. What kind of a connection do you see? $200

  41. 4-200A 1 - 100 In the story about Tommy and the leaves, I thought about the story we read when the girl imagined she was flying over the houses on her rope swing. Both stories used imagination. It helped me to become part of the story and imagine myself flying. $200

  42. 4-300 What three parts are needed in written response to text in order to receive full credit for a written connection? $300

  43. 4-300A 1 - 100 • What the story says – specific details. • What it makes me think of (another story, my life, the world) specifically. • How the two go together. $300

  44. 4-400 Often times children get confused when they try to write connections. They write __________ instead. What do they write instead of connections? $400

  45. 4-400A 1 - 100 Coincidences! Children write coincidences and think they are making connections! $400

  46. 4-500 Give three examples of coincidences and explain how they are different from connections. $500

  48. 5-100 1 - 100 A Fox once saw a Crow fly off with a piece of cheese in its beak and settle on a branch of a tree.      "That's for me, as I am a Fox," said Master Reynard, and he walked up to the foot of the tree.      "Good day, Mistress Crow," he cried. "How well you are looking today: how glossy your feathers; how bright your eye. I feel sure your voice must surpass that of other birds, just as your figure does; let me hear but one song from you that I may greet you as the Queen of Birds."      The Crow lifted up her head and began to caw her best, but the moment she opened her mouth the piece of cheese fell to the ground, only to be snapped up by Master Fox.      "That will do," said he. "That was all I wanted. In exchange for your cheese I will give you a piece of advice for the future: "Do not trust flatterers." $100

  49. 5-100A 1 - 100 "Do not trust flatterers." $100
