Word Study - Blog 1 term 3

I am learning to understand how words are formed using roots, prefixes and suffixes.

So What?

I have learned that words that have the root spect- mean look / see. For example spectator is a person that watches someone or something.

Now what?

This week I am reflecting on one of my writing goals

IALT: Improve my writing by learning how to:

* use a variety of sentence starters

This week I have been focusing on how to write a drop-in clause

Here is an example of a drop-in clause

Mr Forman is our teacher.
He loves his red car.
Mr Forman, who is our teacher, loves his red car.

Mr Forman is the subject of the sentence.
We change ‘He’ to ‘who’
We place commas around the clause we ‘drop-in’

Here are two examples of a drop-in clause that I have created.
[1] Blake, who has a fluffy yellow chicken, is awesome.

I rate my understanding level at 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
My confidence level with using these types of sentences independently in my writing is

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Life Education


We have been learning ' What does your body need to stay happy and heathy?'. As part of this the Life Education truck came to school.


I learned that there are many different names for sugar and that many foods and drink added like sugar. Mint treat biscuits has a high amount of sugar.

It is important to have a balanced diet.


I am going to start looking at the nutritional information guide to see if a food has less that 10gm of sugar. Because I would like to have a healthy diet.

My Reading blog

Boys V Beast


This is the book I have just finished reading as part of my reading goal which  is to be able to read for longer periods of time and retain meaning.


I liked how there were every kind of land. Some would be fire, water, ice and wind. Sometimes the beast would rise up out of the volcano and the volcano pieces would burst everywhere. I like it how sometimes they have special abilities.


My goal is also to read a variety of genre. This book was a science fiction / fantasy genre. The next genre I am going to read is non-fiction.


Welcome to my learning blog for 2016.

Here you will be able to read about the things I have been learning in Room 24.

It would be great if you could post a comment about my learning.
