Leadership article writing

In writing I have been learning to:
  • use all basic punctuation independently
  • attempt more complex punctuation (e.g semicolons, colons, parentheses)

I have been especially focusing on using parentheses 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.

The table below shows my understanding of games with minimal or no equipment.



Examples of Games that need minimal or no equipment.
What equipment would we usually need to play these games.  
Why do we play games with minimal or no equipment?
cat n mouse
invisible touch
simon says
duck, duck, goose
drip,drip,drop
capture the flag
cones
bibs
flags
So that we can play these games at morning tea or lunch, we can also play these outside of school e.g at home.


My Strengths.  
Some things that I have done well during this unit of learning are……knowing how to play these games……..because… I have played them before


My Next Steps.

Some things I could improve on when playing games with minimal or no equipment are…….finding out more games that I can play with my friends  Because… then I have a range of ideas/ games to play with a range of ages.
