Recently, in literacy, S. America, have been learning about explanation texts about how astronauts stay fit in space. We studied different extracts on the following: how to brush your teeth, washing your hair/hands and how to get to sleep in space. Eventually, we wrote our own and peer edited them.
This week we have been planning to write our own stories about discovering a lost ancient Mayan cities. So far we have planned our characters and story line. Our main goal was to write a character description using subtle detail such as explaining how our characters move and talk.
This week, we were given the task to guess 20 Mayan glyphs. We then copied 3 of them into our books and then described what they were to us and why. After that, we created our own, making sure it wasn’t too obvious (using circles, straight lines).
