Features of Persuasive Writing


My Reflection

We have been learning to identify the features of persuasive writing.  I found this tricky because I didn't really know what all the things were that we had to do and a friend help me.  Something I learnt was a rhetorical question because I did not know what one was. My next step is to write a persuasive speech.

We have been learning to compare and contrast different celebrations.  My group researched information about Chinese New Year.  Something I found interesting was when we looked at some things about Chinese new year their were some very funny things about Chinese new year.  Next we worked with another group and used a Venn diagram to compare our celebrations. Things that were the same were decorations, special food and friends and family. My next step is to put more detail and information in the Venn diagram.

Responding to a text



My Reflection

I have been learning to respond to a text using my prior knowledge and experience. We read a story called 'A Birthday Cake for Grandma.' I was able to make a connection in this text when they were talking about birthday cakes and that reminds me of my birthday cakes. I found this tricky because I couldn't really think of what some of the questions were. My next step is to try to think of even better answers.

Prefix Suffix and Root Words


My Refection

I have been learning to use my knowledge of prefixes, and suffixes ton read and understand the meaning of words. A prefix is a group of letters that come at the beginning of the word that can change the meaning of the word. A suffix is a letter or group of letters at the end of the word to form another word or new meaning. I found this tricky because some times I forgot what a prefix and suffix was. My next learning step is to understand how the suffix or prefix changes to word and it's meaning.

                                              My Reflection

I have been learning to write an antonym diamante poem.  An antonym is a word that means the opposite.  A diamante poem is a poem shaped as a diamond.   I found this easy because we have written it down in our books and all we had to do was copy it then try and make it make sense. My next step is to try a little bit harder so when I do another Antonym Diamante poem I can do even better by using more nouns and adjectives and verbs.
