This term, we have been exploring the process of Bookmaking in Year 4 and have all become authors! We have been looking at different books and naming and noticing the features that make us want to read them. We have then used these techniques to create our very own books. Within the 3 homegroups, we have a vast variety of books such as comics, fairytales, information texts and thrillers!
Using mentor texts, we have been exploring features such as onomatopoeia, font size and direction, adjectives and the use of color and size. Students have then been invited to use these techniques and features in their own texts. As such, we have created texts that not only have our fantastic words in them, but also have illustrations, blurbs and lots of creativity included inspired by other authors we have explored.
