Oral Language and Draft Writing

The Learning Process
  • First, the children listened to the teacher describe a creature and they drew what they heard.
  • Then they wrote about their creature, using descriptive words.
  • Next, they shared their writing with a talking partner to "Give one -Take one"  - share words that they could add to their own descriptions.
  • Finally, they worked on their writing again to make it better.
Learning Intention

I am learning to:
  • Use words to build a picture in my own mind
  • Use descriptive words in my writing
  • Use talking and sharing my ideas as a way to make my own writing better.
Success Criteria
  • The words I use will put a detailed picture into the mind of the person reading my writing - my audience.
 Draft Writing
