For the past few weeks we’ve been studying poems. We looked at some and then wrote down what is included in poems and what isn’t. Then we wrote our own poem but it had to be on a subject. My subject was gymnastics. Here’s my poem.
Next year I’m going to be a grade six and in grade six we get prep buddies. Over the past month or so we’ve been drafting, writing, illustrating and publishing picture story books for our new buddies. My book is called The Lunch Time Problem.
It was really challenging and fun doing our picture books. I wrote all the words and drew all the pictures. I put heaps of detail into the pictures and didn’t draw stick figures so my buddy will be able to enjoy listening to the words as well as looking deep into the pictures.
I really liked writing and illustrating my book because it was a chance for me to let my drawing skills out (which aren’t the best) and using simple words that are for a prep aged audience.
If I wrote my book again I would probably add some more action into it to make it more exciting.
This is my book in a video. It goes really fast so feel free to pause and play it. If you like my picture book leave a comment.
