Week 2 - Writing Goal update


WHAT?
This week I am reflecting on one of my writing goals

IALT: Improve my writing by learning how to:

* use a variety of sentence starters

This week I have been focusing on how to write a drop-in clause

SO WHAT?
Here is an example of a drop-in clause

Mr Forman is our teacher.
He loves his red car.
Mr Forman, who is our teacher, loves his red car.

Mr Forman is the subject of the sentence.
We change ‘He’ to ‘who’
We place commas around the clause we ‘drop-in’

MY EXAMPLES:
Here are two examples of a drop-in clause that I have created.
[1]
[2]

NOW WHAT?
I rate my understanding level at 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
My confidence level with using these types of sentences independently in my writing is

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

My Writing Goals for term 2

IALT: Improve my writing by learning how to:

* organise my writing into paragraphs
* use a variety of sentence starters
* use the correct language features of a narrative - dialogue

Use a variety of sentence starters
To help me with this goal I am using a 'Sentence Starter Menu'

It will help my writing to be more interesting and to hook the reader in more.
