In Jan’s literacy class, everyone worked in teams to make videos using lyrics from different songs. My worked with two other friends and our songs were “Nothing’s Gonna Change My Love for You”, “Try Everything” and “Crarity”. We made a story about a triangle love. Please enjoy the story below.
One of a literacy program that is include in After School Extension is Advanced Reading. I was one of the advanced reader at Liger since the second year. The reason this is an extension because we don’t have enough time to read during literacy class. Currently, I am reading a book called “Unbroken”. It is about a man named Louie. It talks about how he survive on an ocean for 27 days.
My English has improved a lot from year one. In the notebook, I saw a project called N.V.A Story. In the writing, I found some mistakes that I would not make now like superlative adjective mistakes and possessive mistakes. Also, my reading level was around I and K, but now my reading level is around V and W. My comprehension checks for those books were short in year one and in year three, my comprehension checks were about three times longer. I think it is because the questions are harder. I also found one easy spelling mistake: I spelled “farther” and I meant “father”. In one comprehension check, I saw a sentence that’s missing a word. The sentence was “My father go to the that he work.” and I meant “My father went to the place that he worked”. I found one redundancy mistake: message it means idea. Verb tense mistakes were shown a lot in my notebook, examples: I was rang to him everyday, the picture look real. In my year one notebook, my handwriting was neat but by the time I get to the middle of the book my handwriting was messy.
The first assignment I got in Jan’s literacy class (writing literacy class) is to write about going to an Unusual School, which is Liger. My teacher said my writing was one of the best writing. Below is the link to the pdf file of my writing.
By Christmas, everyone at Liger has their own goal for literacy. I have two goals. The first goal is to write with more sensory information. That means write with more adjectives and feeling. Another is to read and speak with more expression. Caroline, my literacy teacher said that they are good goals for me.
One the June 11th, I took a big test on grammar bootcamp. There were four parts in the test. There were answering general questions about grammar, sorting words in the right part of speech, filling verb tenses, and paragraph editing. I got 98% percents on the test, and I am glad with my score!
