I found this activity easy because I knew all the ingredients already from making the drink and seeing the ingredients with my own eyes. I am proud of how I typed out my work. My next steps with instructions is to make my work more fancy.

I enjoyed using the paperclips in between my giraffes mane to make sure I didn't paint over the black lines. I am proud of how I used the pastels to shade the neck of my giraffe.

I have been learning to use adjectives to add detail and expression to my writing. I found this activity easy because I thought of everything before I wrote it in my head. I enjoyed writing my poem because there is lots of adjectives you can think of and include in your writing. My next step with using adjectives is to use the thesaurus and dictionary to find better words.

WALT: retell a story.
This is about the story 'The Lonely Tiger' by Tatiana Sharpe. I tried to retell the story using Puppet Pals. My characters are the troll, myself, my dojo minion, Harold, and Kahlan's bag. My favourite part was setting up the people and taking photos and putting different bodies onto the photos. I am proud of how similar my retell was to the story. My next step with retelling is to use character traits to make it more like the story.

I use different language features in my writing so people go wow and want to read my story. For my story about my lava lamp. I used onomatopoeia to make my story more interesting.
I thought it was hard because it was hard to remember what I did
my next step is to make it more interesting.
We have been learning about character traits. This is my poster of the crocodile from 'the crocodile in the library' by Margaret Mahy.
