I can make links across texts by recognising connectives or adverbial clause

I can make links across texts by recognising connectives or adverbial clauses

In this unit learnt what an adverbial clause and conjunction are

A connective is when you add an extra word to connect two simple sentences into one

An adverbial clause is when you add a subject and and it is longer than an adverbial phrase

Here is a link to a compare and contrast map of an adverbial clause and a connective

Term 1 novel study

Term 1 Novel Study

This term I have been reading and studying the novel dragon keeper.

I found this novel (interesting, ok etc)  because it was full of action and adventurous.

During the novel I had to complete two major assessment tasks. The first is an Explain Map which shows the consequences of a major event in the book. The second was a Describe++ Map (Inference map) which shows I how I have connected prior knowledge and other experiences to what I have been reading to make an inference.

National Standard this covers (delete the ones that are not appropriate)

  • Year 7/8  Standard
    • using several pieces of information to make inferences
      using their prior knowledge, along with information in the text, to interpret abstract ideas, complex plots, and sophisticated themes
    • I can use a range of strategies, such as inferring, to work out more complex words

term 1 book review

                        term 1 book review 

The book I enjoyed in term 1 was Ranger's Apprentice. It's about a boy named Will and his teacher Halt and they are both rangers
( Halt is, anyway, otherwise it would called something else like The Rangers or something like that.) People were a little scared of rangers because they think they have arcane powers and they mostly believed that because of their cloaks since they had a pattern that let them blend in with the background. This is a fantasy and adventure book series.
