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!!
