Today you will write a DRAFT COPY of a reflection on G3. This will go to your G4 teacher to show them how you create sentences, paragraphs, spell, use punctuation and edit when writing. Please do the best you can.
As a class, brainstorm things we did and what we learned in Grade 3. Your teacher to display these somewhere in the classroom.
1. Write your reflection using your best spelling, punctuation, past tense, grammar, sentences and paragraphs. You can use the guided questions below to help organize your ideas into paragraphs.
- What were your favorite moments? What did you have to do? What made this moment so cool for you? (Click HERE for ideas!)
- What did you enjoy learning about this year? Why?
- What are you most proud of this year? Why?
- What advice would you give to a Grade 2 student who is coming to Grade 3 next year?
2. Take your time to read over your writing and edit any errors or add details using a red or pink pencil.
3. Hand it into your teacher – you are done.
Yes! We are going to write another report!
But first, click on this link to see an example of a G3 report written by someone in another school. (or see below)
You should never race a cheetah. Do you know why? Because you’ll always lose. That’s because cheetahs are very fast runners. They can run up to 75 miles per hour.
The cheetah gets its food by running. But sometimes the lion takes over and grabs the food. That’s mean!
Cheetahs are carnivores. That means they eat meat. Their prey are gazelles and rodents. The cheetah lives and finds food in Africa.
The cheetah and the lion eat each other. If the cheetah is weaker, the lion eats the cheetah, and it’s the same with the other.
The cheetah has up to three to five babies. The cheetah has larger litters than other cats, but on average only two cubs live into adulthood.
Cheetahs are amazing. I hope you like cheetahs. I know I do!’
Let’s make a note of what you notice about this report example.
