My Learning Adventures
This term the Girls only Powerful Writing group have been working on some creative writing to enhance our learning. Some of the things we have learnt are: to use Read Write (on the computer), using different web sites and helping each other ideas, feedback and feedforward.
A creative piece of writing I did was my story called, “ The man in the book”. When I was creating this story the first thing I did was we looked at and talked about some beautiful illustrations and we brainstormed together. This helped me find tricky and interesting words to use. Some of the ways we got words were from the Read Write computer program, thesaurus.com, friends, adults and dictionary.com.
When I started writing I started to use Read write to help me edit and listen to my writing, this has helped me to hear if it makes sense.
When I had finished I got two friends to look at my writing and to read it so they could give me feedback and feedforward.
After I got that feedback and feedforward I used some of the advice to help me make my story more creative and more interesting. The thing I have found really hard has been working with new and different people that I have not worked with before. The thing that I liked was getting helpful feedforward from my class mates. I am really proud of my writing.
Here is an excerpt of some of my writing:
“ While Raj was walking on a big grassy hill he found a big humongous shiny blue book….”
