Holidays...Why Do Schools Have Them?

A writing focus for our classroom has been writing to explain. Writing to explain has a specific structure which we have had to learn. Over time, with practice and feedback we have all made progress in our writing. We used this success criteria to help us follow the structure and give feedback to ourselves and others. 

As we all love holidays, we had to write to explain why we need them. After completing our writing we chose different ways to present our writing, instead of simply just adding a google docs with our writing. Here is an example of one way we chose to share our writing with others...

  1. Your presentation is a great idea, Hayley; it really made me want to read what you've written because you've broken the text up into chunks. I also wanted to see what you'd written on the next slide; it made me want to read on because I couldn't see it all at once.

    This isn't a reason why schools have holidays, but it is often convenient for schools to have maintenance, such as painting, done in the holidays when there is no one around.
