Term 1 Novel Study

Term 1 Novel Study

This term I have been reading and studying the novel See Ya Simon by David Hill

I found this novel interesting because you follow siamons last moments in life and along the way you learn about the disease siamon had which is Muscular Dystrophy.

During the novel I had to complete two major assessment tasks. The first is an Explain Map which shows the consequences of a major event in the book. The second was a Describe++ Map (Inference map) which shows I how I have connected prior knowledge and other experiences to what I have been reading to make an inference.

National Standard this covers

  • Year 7/8  Standard
    • using several pieces of information to make inferences
      using their prior knowledge, along with information in the text, to interpret abstract ideas, complex plots, and sophisticated themes
    • I can use a range of strategies, such as inferring, to work out more complex words.

Key leadership-earning my merit-Excellence blog post #2

7/4/17
In assembly on Monday I was sitting down waiting for the Miss Trotter to call my name for my merit badge my mum had come along to see me get it. When I got it I was very happy because it is actually kinda hard to get you merit badge. First you need to blog about your key leadership role (that's what this one is) 5 times then you need to blog about two things you have done around the school to show leadership 5 times and lastly you need to do 5 home learning challenges and blog about those so in all total you are only allowed to blog three times a week.

I think I showed great active thinking because I had to actively think up a new topic for each blog post, I also showed goal focused by working towards my goal of getting my merit badge.
