Learning to write descriptions

To begin Term Two’s writing program we are learning to write literary descriptions.  To be able to do this we have to learn about nouns, adjectives, adverbs, proper nouns and pronouns.  In week one we have practiced stretching out sentences to make them more descriptive.

When we are writing it is important to use adjectives and adverbs so that the people who read our writing can picture what we are writing about.

On Friday we read the book “The very cranky bear” by Nick Bland

This is a story that has lots of adjectives and introduced us to adverbs.  We then created out own character to describe using a template.

Who can tell me what an adjective is?  What are some examples of adverbs?

We will display the characters we wrote about in class on our gallery wall outside our classroom…
