    Things to think about:

    • What were the instructions for? A thing, a location, an action?
    • What problem does not understanding bring?
    • what be the perfect result be?

5. Comment on at least 2 other blogs- remember to be relevant, constructive and appropriate. There’s hints for leaving comments here: http://antsclass.global2.vic.edu.au/student-blogs-and-email/

Holidays

Image result for holiday homework

Over the holidays you have a couple of things to complete.

Firstly, please complete your post about your infographic. It should show your infographic and talk a little about what you achieved- how did you incorporate infographic features and how did you develop your paragraphing structure?

 

Secondly, please write your buddy a letter to read to them on our first session together. You should think about ‘audience’ and ‘purpose’. Who will be reading it and what do you hope to achieve by them reading it?

What do Preps like finding out about? What might be their interests? (Remember the sorts of things you liked at that age) What language will you choose so that they understand?

The purpose of this letter is to begin building a caring and trusting relationship, so what things can you include that will make them feel excited, comfortable and cared about? Inform them, entertain them and ask about them.

How might you decorate your letter so that they are excited and find the experience fun?

It’s important that you put your heart into the task so that you are showing that you care about your buddy and about building a positive relationship with them.

 

Finally,  READ A BOOK! Maybe from start to finish….

See if you can set yourself the challenge of reading more these holidays than you have in any other (after all, you’re older and more capable than you have ever been before!)

But at the very least, read most days, and come back to school ready to discuss what you have read.

 

And relax & have fun!

  1. Reading log signed 5 times for the week
  2. Hotmaths-Addition Strategies
  3. 100 Word Challenge (try to set yourself a writing goal at the start, and remember at least once a month to add an audacity file of you reading this)

  6.  Find out who your representatives are in the Federal House of Representatives & the Senate. You can use these sites: House of Representatives membersSenators  .  You’ll notice that 12 senators come up. This is because our senators are elected by our whole state, not by our electorate.  You may need your parents’ help to identify your postcode or your electorate, or you can use this site: Find My Electorate
