Description: We read the poem “My Remarkable Journey” which inspired us to write our own remarkable journeys about why our homework wasn’t at school today.
We decided that a quality piece of writing has the following things. Reflect on whether these things are in your story:
Introduction: It hooks the reader in the first few lines making them want to read more
Punctuation: Is your writing ready for a reader? Does your punctuation make it easy for them to read?
Short sentences: Do you create suspense by using these in your writing?
Onomatopoeia: Are these in your writing to create impact?
Alliteration: Are these in your writing to create impact?
Similes/Metaphors: Are these in your writing to create impact?
1. What do you think is the best part of your story?
The part where I said I came back from Australia
2. What was the hardest part about completing this portfolio sample?
Copying the story from the book onto my device
3. Next time, what is a goal you can work towards?
I did my sample quite slowly, so next time I want to be quicker.
Feedback/Feedforward: You did well on the description.
Next time work on the size of the writing of the story. #Josh
