Literacy: We continue with the line of inquiry ‘The elements of narrative’.
Big idea: As writers, we can show not just tell. We acted out various emotions, and using our senses, made a list of of observations. The kids then practiced rewriting some ‘boring’ descriptions.
Big Idea: I can use figurative to make my writing more engaging. Using the color chart and picture prompts, we practiced using personification to add depth to our descriptions.
Big Idea: When I describe a character, I am creating an image for my reader. Mr David introduced us to ‘Eggula’ and modeling a detailed description, the kids created a portrait of the character. The similarity of the images created tells us that the written description is effective.
UOI: We had more visiting artists – Mr David (photography) and Ms Emma (pottery) sharing their experiences, reflections and creations as artists. Lots of tips, tricks and inspiration to carry us toward the final unit assessment.
Book Drive: The baskets are sitting in the classroom ready for donations.
Have a wonderful long weekend!
