I can make links across texts by recognising connectives or adverbial clauses

In this unit learnt what an adverbial clause is and also what a connective is.

A connective is a word that connects a sentence or an idea.

An adverbial clause is a sentence that is before or after the comma.

Here is a link to a compare and contrast map of an adverbial clause and a connective

Home Learning Challenge, A2- Use a creative ICT tool to make a present for someone.

On Saturday the 6th of May 2017
I made a Collage for my Nanna as a present. I think she will like it because it has photos of her and my family. It also has photos of her favorite flowers and some of things that will remind her that we love her.

My Favourite book from Term 1

Thirteen Candles 
Thirteen candles is about a girl who's name is Julia. Julia is just turning thirteen and to her surprise when she goes to blow out her birthday candles (thirteen of them, hence the title) that they blow out on there own. As they are watching the video of her family and her best friend singing 'Happy Birthday' their seems to be a shadow behind Julia it looks exactly the same as her. She thinks it is just her shadow but after the shadow saves her life she is starting to get suspicious. I think it is a really good book and recommend it to people that like graphic novels.

Home Learning Challenge-R2

On the Monday of Week 10 I made cupcakes for my neighbor for the Home Learning Challenge so I can achieve my merit badge.
The Challenge I did was bake some cookies for your neighbor so I assumed that I could bake some cupcakes instead of cookies.
First I set the oven to the right temperature then I got the ingredients out and ready. Flour, Sugar, Cocoa Powder, Butter, Egg and some chopped up chunks of a Chocolate Bar.
So I made the cupcakes and they turned out great! I let them cool then I made the icing. Water, Icing Sugar, Food Colouring and some Peppermint Essence.17841866_10154363167937823_387232230_n.jpg
Then I grated the rest of the Chocolate Bar and it turned out to look like chocolate crumbs so I put it in a bowl and left it to the side for later.
Once the cakes had cooled I put the icing on and then sprinkled some chocolate crumbs on top. Don’t they look delicious!

I delivered them to my neighbor and she was very pleased!
