Term 1 Novel Study

This term I have been reading and studying the novel castaway

I found this novel boring because the book was not very Interesting

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

  • 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 word

Examples of Games that need minimal or no equipment.
What equipment would we usually need to play these games.  
Why do we play games with minimal or no equipment?
invisible tag cones and bibs becuase if we want to play a game at school there could be not be any more equipment left

My Strengths.  
Some things that I have done well during this unit of learning are following the rules because i followed the rules in evey game

My Next Steps.
Some things I could improve on when playing games with minimal or no equipment are getting involved completely Because i did not get involved completely

Leadership article

In writing I have been learning to:
  • use all basic punctuation independently
  • attempt more complex punctuation (eg semicolons, colons, parentheses)

I have been especially focussing on using parentheses and commas. I have highlighted these in green where I have used them as well as other punctuation that I changed because it was used incorrectly. Here is a piece of my writing that shows this.Leadership article
