Ella, Room 6, Makarewa School. Year 5. Teacher: Kylie Murcott.
The writing focus was to describe a place that they visited in the holidays using rich, descriptive language. They had to include a simile and use their senses to add detail and description.
The planning process included a senses chart, a circle map and a paragraph graphic organiser. Then a draft was written out, re-crafted and edited.
Then they completed a piece of artwork that represents their place.
The artwork was scanned into iPhoto, transferred into iMovie. They then recorded themselves reading their writing into iMovie, to create a digital story.
