Week 6, Term 4
That's right....this week it's free choice writing!
Week 3, Term 4
I was searching the internet when I came across this classroom blog. These children wrote "Awesome Alliteration Sentences". Alliteration is when you use lots of words in a sentence that begin with the same letter sound.
Can you write your own Awesome Alliteration Sentence? Maybe you could include your name. Here's my one....
"Helen the happy hippo hopped on her heels through the humid desert. All the hopping gave her the most horrible hiccups!"
When you have written your Awesome Alliteration Sentence, publish it in the comments section below. You might also like to draw a picture to match your sentence, just like the other children did on their blog. I have attached a link to a paint programme you could use, if you don't already have one on your computer. If you're feeling really fancy, you could ask your parents to "take a screenshot" of your picture and email it to me. If you do, I'll be sure to put it on our blog!
Week 2, Term 4
This week for home fun you need to write a recount about a time you were EXHAUSTED! what were you doing? How did you feel? If someone were to look at you, how would they know you were exhausted?
Week 1, Term 4
Welcome back to school, Room 15! This term we will be spending a lot of time learning how to write really interest recount stories. Your first writing task this term is to write about the...
So...when was your best day ever? This week we will be focussing on writing a good introduction. It's really important to include information about all 4Ws in the first few sentences - who? what? where? when? Remember to type up your story in the comment section below!
Week 9, Term 3
We have used the above story starter machine a few times in Room 15 - it's always a favourite! This week your writing task is to come up with your own story starter by pressing the buttons on the machine. I can't wait to read a few of them in the comments section!
Week 7, Term 3
This week we are learning how to grab the reader’s attention in the very first sentence. There are lots of different ways of doing this….
1. Use a simile (When he moved he was as loud as booming thunder)
2. Ask a question (How fast would you run if you saw this mythical creature?)
3. Include onomatopoeia (Crash! Whoosh! I heard a strange sound….)
Week 6, Term 3
Woah! Check out this Ninja Spy Mouse! What do you suppose he is up to? Where is he breaking into? How can you describe the setting? What is he trying to steal? Who set the trap? Is the mouse a goodie or a baddie?
Week 4, Term 3
This week you have two picture prompts to choose from (unless you get super excited and want to write two stories!) Option 1 - Haunted House; Option 2 - Leaping Frog
What words can you use to describe this haunted house? Who are the characters? Don't just write "The Zombie..." (I know you boys, I'm sure there'll be a zombie somewhere!) ...make sure you use adjectives to describe the characters! What events happen in the haunted house? What's the problem going to be, and how will you solve the problem?
This is such a funny little frog. Where do you suppose he is off to? Is he running from something? Or is he running to get somewhere? What other characters are in this story? What adjectives will you use to describe the setting and characters? How will you introduce the story in an exciting way? (onomatopoeia maybe??)
Week 3, Term 3
We were playing in the snow building a snowman. I was putting the final touches on when all of a sudden he started to move! He laughed and said….
Week 2, Term 3
This week we are learning more about how to write a narrative. Remember, a narrative is a made-up, fictional story. At the beginning it is important to describe the setting and characters. Use this picture prompt to make up your own story. Who do you think lives in the little tree house? What do you think is behind the door? Are your characters sweet, funny, scary, weird or magical? Use your imagination!
