DOWN THE RABBIT’S HOLE … AND INTO FANTASY

AFTER weeks to reading, of having quiet classes and watching your children disappear down the rabbit hole of imagination and fantasy, it’s time to explain what we have read and learned from our books. Some will write essays, some will write book reviews. All will re-tell, explain and prove.

ORGANIZING OUR THOUGHTS & OUR IDEAS:

POST-IT NOTES:

We can use colour coding, and post-it notes to sort our ideas. Then we can move them around if needed!

FLOW CHARTS AND VENN DIAGRAMS:

Flow charts and venn diagrams are excellent ways to sort information. This helps us get a clear structur later on when we write. Comparing two characters or figuring out how an author built their story is much easier this way! And, it’s great for all subjects: imagine comparing two religions or countries!

MINDMAPS

 

Mindmaps are great ways to get all your ideas in one place, and start to sort them into categories. If you have a good mindmap then you’re definitely ready to get writing!

LINEAR PLANNING

Sometimes you’ve done all the brainstorming and mind mapping in your head! Linear planning is a good way to get make sure you get structure before you write. The above is an excellent example of an essay outline!

Tellus is really starting to analyze, compare, prove and explain their ideas in clear ways. They’re taking the messages of English writers and turning them into their own opinions. And all in English!

Keep blooming this spring!
