Success Criteria: I can read the text to extract greater meaning which we will display in our follow up activities.

Answer the following questions in red:

What types of ideas is dad always getting? Is that dad is always getting old ideas like odd Ball and he is telling his family about the Blowing your own Trumpet.

What do you think an ‘odd-ball idea is’? A odd ball idea is when you come up with something old that you can remember like how dad came up with the odd ball so that what odd ideas mean to me.

Where were ‘simple trumpets’ originally found? Simple trumpet like these were found in Tutankh - mens Tomb.

Why was dads trumpet making no noise to begin with? Because he pressed his lips tightly together and puffed out his cheeks.

Why is dad making a trumpet? The reason dad is making a trumpet is because he has came back from work and found in magazine that he can make a early trumpet because it is really easy. Who is he trying to ‘show what trumpeting is all about? He is trying to show his family how easy trumpet is made out of because it only needs 2 things just to make a trumpet.

For what reason did dad decide to use a balloon to blow his trumpet? Because if he uses a balloon he can easily blow it and it makes a really loud noise when he blows the trumpet into the balloon.

What are your predictions for dads new materials he’s using to make his trumpet? Is that I will never work because when he goes to blow his trumpet it won’t be that loud like a normal trumpet and it will be hard for him to blow his trumpet.

It seems that dad is doing a trial and error of different ways he could make a trumpet, do you agree with this statement? Why/why not? I will agree  because he won’t be able to make it because his trumpet will be really small because his hands won’t fit when he blows it.
