PURPOSE to describe
WALT show not tell in our writing

WILF
I will begin by describing what the characters body felt like.
I will describe what they were thinking
I will leave the audience hanging

His mouth went purple like a fresh grape, his skin was turning pale. His heart was frozen, his hands were rubbing against his arms, his teeth started to clatter, he started to shiver. His hands were quivering. He was wondering where he could get warm….

Can you guess what emotion he or she is having?

  1. Hi Kiri Its Kiana. I love your Writing it brings the life in to your blog. Question did you like doing and if you did why? I think what would be helpful for you would have to be changing the color of your writing. Great job so amazing. I have to go see you soon.

    2. Hi Kiana, I think your right I should change the colours of my writing. Could you guess what emotion/feeling I write about? If you know, why do you think that?

  2. "Hey Kirihiria".It's Hine here first of all awesome mahi I love the way you said his mouth went purple like a fresh grape. That is a great disruption. Like what Kiana said maybe next time you could leave your colours in one writing because it is a little bit hard to read. Other than that "Ka Mau Te Wehi Mahi" Keep it up.
