LI: To write a imaginative paragraph that makes sense.
Today, Santana and I took on a challenge called ‘quick write’. We would have to write a story in two minutes but there would be two words given to us that we needed to include in our paragraph. The story can be nonsense but the sentences had to make sence. Once two minutes is up, we checked our punctuation and made sure it made sense. Then we would count the amount of words we wrote. Next time, we would try to beat the amount of words we wrote the last time. This time we highlighted the vocabulary we used in the paragraphs.
The first two rounds were individual. The main challenge was two words and two minutes. The two words were nouns, for example: shoes, flour, bear, etc. We wrote these paragraphs in our writing book.
The next challenge was five words and five minutes. We completed this in pairs. This time we had to include three powerful words from Word Hippo, one adjective, one noun, one adverb, one verb, one compound sentence and one rhetorical question. We wrote these on a piece of paper so we could collaborate properly.
There was a super challenge which was twelve words and twelve minutes. The twelve words were three powerful words from Word Hippo, one adjective, one noun, one adverb, one verb, one compound sentence, one complex sentence, one transitional vocab and a rhetorical question.
What I found interesting during this task was learning how to write fast while using our imagination.
