Year 2 News - Online Literature Festival

On Friday 30th August Year 2 participated in the Online Literature Festival. Presented in partnership between Education Queensland and the State Library of Queensland, the Online Literature Festival offers the opportunity for teachers and students to meet and work with their favourite authors and illustrators. Year 2 participated with several other schools in an online web chat with author Meredith Costain.  Meredith’s book ‘Doodledum Dancing’ was one of our C2C texts in Term 1. Meredith took us through the process of writing short poems about pets. We got the chance to build up word lists together to use in our poems. We also had a chance to chat about our own pets and what makes them special. We had on online discussion about Meredith's own books about pets: Bed Tails and Doodledum Dancing. It was a great experience.
Here are some cinquain poems about our pets that we wrote during our web chat. We hope you enjoy them!
