Guided Reading Sample Text:
Zeus: So, what happened to the tapestries you both created in this competition? I’d like to see them!
Arachne: Oops! I don’t think so!
Zeus: Athene! What does she mean?
Spider: Oh dear! This is where it could get messy! I think I might just scuttle off now before things get too heated!
Zeus: What does he mean? Why should these tapestries upset me?
Arachne’s mum: Just when I thought things couldn’t get any worse! Oh daughter, what have you done?
Arachne: Seemed like a good idea at the time! How was I to know Zeus would turn up?
Zeus: Enough! You women test my patience to its limits! I demand to see the tapestries … or one of these thunderbolts will be heading in your direction!
Spiderboy: Time to take cover! Even us superheroes of the big screen are no match for the big daddy of the gods!
Zeus: You’d do well to heed my warning! So come on! Let me see what you two have been up to!
Athene: Tell you what. Let’s start with mine!
Arachne: Good idea. (Aside) This could buy me enough time to make a speedy exit!
Zeus: Not so fast, you! Stay exactly where you are! You’re next!
Arachne: Of course, sir! As if I’d want to miss my turn … on the barbeque!
Spider: She’s got that part right! I’ve heard barbequed spiders is one of Zeus’s favourites!
Athene: Here, father. This is my tapestry entitled ‘The Power of the Gods’.
Zeus: Ah! There’s me! Looking very regal, if I might say so
