                                   Abandon Ship                               

I enjoyed how they made it so it's  major when it did not need to be . I enjoyed how it was so good at getting people right in to it because ones your in to it you are suck because its so good . The person who write it was Debbie Atherton . They never tried to give up so they are pretty brave to face a storm on a ship . The ship is was big lots of people but  they made it off tho . The Wahine disaster happen in 1968 it is the most dangers bout disaster it is not good to think when your on a bout .

Abandon Ship

Blog Title: Term 1 Novel Study

Term 1 Novel Study

This term I have been reading and studying the novel … Book is Abandon Ship  The Writer is Debbie Atherton

I found this novel (interesting, ok etc)  because…I like this book because the way how there were so many disasters and how it was so interesting .

During the novel I had to complete two major assessment tasks. The first is an Explain Map which shows the consequences of a major event in the book. The second was a Describe++ Map (Inference map) which shows I how I have connected prior knowledge and other experiences to what I have been reading to make an inference.

National Standard this covers (delete the ones that are not appropriate)

Year 7/8  Standard
using several pieces of information to make inferences
using their prior knowledge, along with information in the text, to interpret abstract ideas, complex plots, and sophisticated themes
I can use a range of strategies, such as inferring, to work out more complex words.

Leadership Article

In writing I have been learning to use basic punctuation that is mostly correct;
- use capital letters, full stops and commas,
- use question marks and exclamation marks,
- use apostrophes,
- use speech marks

I have been especially focussing on using exclamation marks and commas. I have highlighted these in green where I have used them as well as other punctuation that I changed because it was used incorrectly. Here is a piece of my writing that shows this.
