Knowledge of Vocabulary

Walt: Have a large vocabulary that is connected to my own knowledge about the world. 

Here is an activity I did about Vocabulary. We did about four of these and each text we learnt something new about the world. Some of the texts we read were:

Here is my Vocabulary activity for Underground explorers

Example/Non Example
Is a void messy? Why or why not?
Void is not messy because it is a empty space and it wouldn’t have anything in it to mess it up.
Which color is the most fluorescent at night? Why?
Yellow and white road are fluorescent at night because they can be seen easily in the dark.
Why are elderly people more vulnerable than children? Why?
Because they are less stable and older, also children are younger and more flexible and full of energy.
Which is more interconnected; a vine or a dandelion? Why?
A vine because they are connected to the plants and a Dandelion is just in the ground and isn’t connected to anything.
Which is more seldom; the Olympics or an election in NZ? Why?
The Olympics because it happens every four years and NZ elections happen every three years.

Word Relationships

How might each pair of words be connected?
They are similar because people that are Vulnerable can be easily hurt which means if something is Fluorescent then it would light up to help them not get injured. If it is dark when they are driving and there is a  road sign that is Fluorescent they would be able to see.
They are similar because void means an empty space and interconnected means connected together so an empty space could be connected to something.

Extended Writing
Think of a time when you felt as though you were in a void or when you saw something that happens seldom. Write a paragraph about this.
A time when I thought something was seldom was when I was shooting a netball goal was a far distance and I got it in and the position was long distance and people rarely got it in from that location. Then when I tried it again I didn’t get it in. It was kind of luck.
My next step is to set a new reading goal.
