Linking NAPLaN Reading with Teaching Strategies
5 Sentence Challenge
Stage 3 classes can use the 100wc (100 word challenge) site to showcase their students writing each week.
There is a second site called the 5 sentence challenge for children starting their journey.
5SC is a "fortnightly creative writing challenge for children under 16....aimed at the younger end or those children who may struggle with 100 words. The prompts are thematic and the link is open for two weeks giving more time for discussion and posting. The children should create 5 sentences about the theme. These can be as a list of 5 or as a piece of prose."
This may be more suitable for Stage 2 classes. Years 1 and 2 may like to use this in class or it could be used as a G&T activity.
