In Prep/One LO we have been practicing our writing skills. We have been looking at pictures and identifying interesting words to help us create a text about a topic we are interested in.
Some writing topics we have written about are different habitats, a variety of animals, Lego creations, monsters and aliens, birthday cards, favorite books, procedure texts, postcards, and letter writing.
Students have had the time and opportunity to explore and chose an area of their learning that they want to write about. As a process for gaining feedback, the students reflected on their writing pieces and shared what they enjoyed most about choosing a text type and topic to write about.
Nelson – I like writing about something I enjoy doing, like making a Lego creation and using blocks to build a bridge.
Mikayla – I liked reading my writing to a friend and my teacher.
Louis – it was fun to listen to a story and write about it.
Max – the best part of writing is writing about things I like, I wrote a letter to my mum and watched a video about penguins, I now know penguins swim away from seals.
Linh-Anh – I made an alien with googly eyes. I like this learning because the alien had two, big, crazy eyes.
As a way to ensure we are doing our best writing the students have developed some goals for all writing pieces, they are listed below:
All writing has to have our name on it.
All writing has to have finger spaces.
All writing has to have capital letters.
All writing has to have full-stops when we have finished our idea.
