Stretching our sentences

For the last couple of weeks, room 22 have been learning to add details to our writing my adding in information about who, what, when, where, and why. We have also been focusing on adding adjectives, verbs and adverbs to hook our readers.

Here is what we have come up with so far:

New focus - Be Organised

We are focusing on being organised.

Room 22 are focusing on:
  • being prepared for learning with our Chromebooks ready in the morning
  • moving on the bell
  • being at the right place, right time and doing the right thing

The Telescopic Text

This term Room 22 have been learning to add details to our writing by stretching sentences. We do this by adding adjectives, verbs, adverbs, similes and metaphors. We discovered this new website called telescopic text.

Here is an example.

We were able to turn a BORING sentence into a DESCRIPTIVE sentence. You click on each word and it stretches out like a telescope. 

You should give it a go!

Blog ya later!
