Concept Cartoon for Evaporation

Have a look at this cartoon and read the speech bubbles carefully.

Why do you think that?

Show, Not Tell

Show, Not Tell is a technique that helps create a picture in the readers mind.

For example,

Martin was angry. (This tells the reader that person  is angry.)

Sitting at his desk, his jaw tightened. His eyes flashed heat waves at me. The words erupted from his mouth, “I want to talk to you after class.” The final hiss in his voice warned me about his feelings. (This  shows that the person is  angry.)

Remember, we love work that oozes lots of green, gooey SNOT!

4H's Goal Scorer of the Week!

Suddenly, my pencil started to blink while I was writing in my writing book. I poked the eye and BOOM! I was on another planet, the one from my story.

I woke up and I saw a waterfall that was as clear as a completely rare diamond. The bottom of the water full was as soft as a huge cloud. The trees were as red as fire. I could hear the birds cheeping like high notes on a piano. I felt confused because I didn’t know where I was.

4P's Goal Scorer of the week.

Well done to Abhiraj for describing his setting using metaphors, similes and adjectives. See if you can steal some ideas for your own writing.

It was an extra ordinary place. I could see vines as green as grass. I could hear water splashing as loud as a dinosaur howling. The sun made the orangy, yellow leaves glow brightly. I felt like my heart was going to stop beating right at that moment. I could hear a helicopter hovering above me like there was something wrong. I walked over the bridge. The bright, shiny, sparkly and silvery water steaming under the bridge .The crazy monkeys were swinging and screaming. The wind howled and whispered in the trees around my ears. The helicopter was unlike the ones back at home. The clouds were as white as whiteboards. The sea creatures were jumping around crazily. The birds tweeted as they flew by in the bright, shiny, sparkly sky unlike at home. I felt like I was going to faint because the place was so MAGNIFICENT! What was going to happen next… How will I get back home?

 

Also congratulations to Brandon and Shoaib for being goal scorers and using descriptive language too. Keep it up!
