2 words 1 minute winter Olympics

Equipment & Respect

This year in the Winter Olympics. There are 43 different countries competing in the winter olympics. There will be lots of different teams using different equipment while participating in the different events that are going on. While they are in the event they will have to show lots of respect to the rules and values, also to the people competing against them in the event like bobsledding and skiing. If you come first you win a gold medal, 2nd silver medal and 3rd a bronze medal. There are also amazing mascots you can win this years mascot is a white tiger.
(99 words)

Today we used the ‘2 words 1 minute’ challenge to write a description about the Winter Olympics. After talking in pairs about the things we knew about the Winter Olympics we created a list of words (vocabulary) that would help us write our description. We chose the words ‘equipment’ and ‘respect’ to help us think about what we were going to write.

We talked about ideas with a partner, then we had 1 minute to put those ideas into sentences. We had to try our best to use all the words on our vocab list. After the minute was up we had 2 minutes to reread what we had written and make changes if anything didn’t make sense, or if we had words and punctuation in the wrong place. When we finished checking we had 2 more minutes to carry on writing our descriptions.

Then all of the words that I highlighted on my paragraph are on my word list. I did well on putting capital letters after a full stop. I need to remember to use my word list.
