Reading

  • What is your plan of action for next week? What one thing will you focus on in your writing next week? Why have you chosen what you did? How does it relate to what you’ve done this week?
My plan of action for next week is to read more. Reading is really not my thing. I don't really like reading but I don't hate it.  When I read the cuckoos nest it's sometimes really hard for me to understand or remember what happened the chapter before. One thing that I will focus on while I'm reading is to picture what is happening while I'm reading along so it helps me understand what's going on. I have chosen to talk about this because I want to improve my grade on the tests and quizzes and I actually want to get into this book because it's really interesting. This all relates to what we have done this week because we have been reading the cuckoos nest for a while now and we are about half way through it if not more.

Skating

I think I have made some progress on reaching my writing goals this year. One of my goals this year was to improve on my vocabulary. In the writers craft that was due last week I think I put a reasonable amount of good vocabulary in it. I also wanted to get good with punctuation, in my writers craft I think I could improve on punctuation. A way I think I progress in punctuation is to bring my writing to the writing center and get it revised. The goal I progressed most on was probably coming up with ideas because in the writers craft I talked about skating, which I have a passion for and I know what I am talking about. I hope on advancing in my goals as the year goes by.

2nd blog post

   My plan of action for next week is to get better at wording and to be more creative in my writings. I plan on improving my wording and creativity by looking in the thesaurus. I plan on focussing a lot in my vocabulary also. I chose this topic because lately I have been having trouble writing about stories in English  and it's really hard to think of ideas to come up with. It relates to what I have done this week in the writers notebook in English.

One of my goals this year is to get better at explaining my thoughts in my writing this year. To accomplish this goal I am also going get better at my vocabulary. My second goal this year is to get better in punctuation or grammar in general because I tend to place them in unneeded areas. To do this I will check over my work and improve. My last goal this year is to get into reading books so I can understand the stories betters.
