Shared Reading/ Writer’s Workshop Mini Lesson
Today we had a look at a writing strategy that Nick Bland uses a lot in his books… Big and Bold!
What is Big and Bold?
Can you point it out in the text?
Why does Nick Bland use it?
I am Special
I declare, I am special and extraordinary. I am not average! I have been custom-made. I am one of a kind. Of all the things God create, what he is most proud of is me. I am his masterpiece, his most prized possession. I will keep my head held high, knowing I am a child of the most high God, made in his very image.
What do you think it means to be made in the image of God?
Nickolas – ‘it means you could be really old, the image is probably because if you are the same age as god you are old.’
Viraj – ‘like helpful people who help people.’
Elijah – ‘a child of God! and then it means you believe God.’
Richard – ‘you are helpful and you are special.’
Alexandros – ‘I am different.’
Oliver – ‘in the image of God is being kind to people.’
Layla – ‘ you are kind to people and you are a special child.’
Mithra – ‘I am dad’s girl.’
Mary K – ‘I miss my people who died. I used to feel sad.’
Angelo – ‘I am special.’
What ‘ue’ words do we know?
Mary K – ‘true’
Alexandros – ‘blue’
Viraj – ‘rescue’
naomi – ‘argue’
Monique – ‘blue’
Oliver – ‘rescue’
