My superhero narrative

WHAT? I have been writing a superhero narrative

SO WHAT? It's about a mysterious superhero named Ancient Knight and his pets, Alpha the magic wolf and Kay the magic stallion.

We use past tense words unless it's inside speech marks, and new speaker, new line

NOW WHAT? I want it to sound more exciting so I need to use better vocabulary

When the year 5's were on camp

When the year 5's were on camp, we had Mrs Casey until they came back.We made plans, but I think I was the only one that made a plan by themselves. I followed my plan, well, most of it.

I planned to do art, SSW, crosswords, word searches, superhero stuff, reading, PP making and other stuff. I also put in specific times, like superhero, 09:25 - 09:50, etc. Not everything went to plan and I changed some stuff, but it was OK.

I really enjoyed doing the Kahoots and sand art. I also enjoyed doing a crossword and word searches. For free time we did Kahoots, puzzles, superhero stuff and passion projects. We had a good time.

Week 2 -  Writing Goal update

Copy and paste the following into your blog. When you have pasted it in, you need to add your 2 examples and also your 1 - 10 rating.
This week I am reflecting on one of my writing goals

IALT: Improve my writing by learning how to:

* use a variety of sentence starters

This week I have been focusing on how to write a drop-in clause

Here is an example of a drop-in clause

Mr Forman is our teacher.
He loves his red car.
Mr Forman, who is our teacher, loves his red car.

Mr Forman is the subject of the sentence.
We change ‘He’ to ‘who’
We place commas around the clause we ‘drop-in’

Here are two examples of a drop-in clause that I have created.
[1]Daniel B, who likes soccer, is turning 11.
[2]The girl on the beach, who had bulging biceps and a hairy chest, decided to go for a swim.

I rate my understanding level at 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
My confidence level with using these types of sentences independently in my writing is
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

This is the book I have just finished reading as part of my reading goal which is to be able to read for
longer periods of  time and retain mean.

So What?

I enjoyed how Geronimo's phone, cell phone, fax machine and computer gone crazy.
I also enjoyed how Geronimo had to sleep in a room made completely out of stone.
Also I enjoyed how how Geronimo had to survive a boiling hot pool, a freezing cold pool, mud pool,
a really strong waterfall, a steaming cave and a dragon style back rub.
