Term 1 Novel Study





Term 1 Novel Study

This term I have been reading and studying the novel Fat, four eyed and useless.

I found this novel interesting because it showed how Ben (the main character) went through bullying.

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 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.

Librarian- Merit #1

On Wednesday Charlotte and I had librarian duty at lunchtime. We started of by putting the returned books back to the shelf were they belong, it took quit a while to get it finished but that's okay it kept us busy. 
After that Mrs Ward took Charlotte in charge of the scanning while i put the rest of the books back to the shelf. We switched positions so I could also do the scanning, since it was a long line we had to show a lot of resilience in order to get this done. At the end of lunch time Charlotte and I straightened the books  Finally we are done!!

She strolled to her car and drove back to her house but suddenly Donnari hears three beeps on her digital watch Beep Beep Beep                                                                                                 she hurried to her closet, grabbed her superhero costume and rushed through her main door to the secret lab underneath her house.

Donna took her bag and went off to her private jet with fluffy. Inside the jet she see’s, two bathrooms, one bed, two tv’s and a mini kitchen she heard that her flight is 21hr long so she waited and waited and waited.
