Writing to describe

In High5 we have been practising writing to describe. That means we are trying to get the reader to see what we see, we are using our words to create a picture. We have been adding details to our writing to help make the picture clearer.

Task:
Our job is to do this planning and write our own story about a person in our family that is special to us.

Success Criteria:
  • I planned my writing 
  • I added details (what I can seehow my person moveswhat I might hear from my person)
  • I did some fixing by myself
  • My writing:

How I am going

Reflection

My favourite part was: planning because kerri helped me and it helped me get my ideas.

It was really hard when: I needed to do some fixing because sometimes I didn't know if it was right or wrong.

Something that really helped me was: my plan helped me to add details to my writing.

Something new I learned was: adding details means giving lots of information to the reader.

You have added lots of details to your writing about your sister, this helps the reader to get to know her. Working together helps you to learn the skills of planning so next time you can have a go by yourself.
Remember to reread your writing to make sure it makes sense. Fixing your writing so it does make sense it your next learning step. It might help if your ideas are in order.
