Start by typing your first name then write about how you helped someone.

Spring has Sprung and we have been busy bees!

Our class has been busy learning about 
2D shapes and 3D figures. 

Here are some photos of the "positive/negative" space art we created.  Try and find some polygons and quadrilaterals in this art.  Which shapes are neither? 
 Can you explain why or why not?

Narratives...story telling with online inspiration

Storybird is a creative tool that can inspire students to write!  The beautiful and often fanciful artwork promotes the expression of endless ideas.

Our class has recently produced a variety of stories - enjoy!

Now...of course with all writing, authors must look at their work and notice what could be added or changed to make improvements.  As you read these stories boys and girls, remember to notice what you could change and improve next time!

**Remember order for your "Storybird" to be posted on our blog you need to "publish it" first. Before publishing, please edit spelling and punctuation.  Too many errors and your story will not be posted!

HOW TO....writing procedural texts

After reading many procedural texts by other authors our class was finally ready to write their own.  The best topic an author can choose is something they know about - this will make the writing process feel so much easier!

Students also incorporated the non-fiction features they learned about to make their "how to" text easy to understand and interesting to read.  

We hope you enjoy our procedures and maybe even try writing one yourself!

Have you ever had something go missing?

Our class has been working hard on some 
adventure stories!  
Each story tells a tale about something that has 
gone missing.  
Some endings are happy, others are not...but all these stories are enjoyable to read!

What did these authors do well?

How could they improve their stories?
You can leave a comment to let us know.
