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

                                   writing goals for term 2

IALT: improve my writing by learning to;

* organise my writing into paragraph.

* use a variety of sentence starters

* use the correct language features of a narrative - dialogue

Use a variety of sentence starters

to help me with this goal I am using a 'sentence starter menu'

It will help my writing to be more interesting and to hook the reader in more.
