Task 2. Choose one of the above as a character for your story. Think about what you have read/watched this week regarding Auggie. See the tables below for a way to plan your story. After you have planned your story, write your first chapter. Think about all the writing techniques that you have been taught in Year 6 and see how many you can use in your chapter. Read back your chapter out loud and check back over your spelling and punctuation.

Character First Impression Evidence from the text
Auggie I think Auggie is compassionate.

I think this because in the text it says ‘I wanted her to see how mad I was at her. But then I saw her face and just nodded. She seemed more scared than I was.’

Questioning – How does it feel to massage my partner’s back? Enjoying – the fact that you can help them relx and enjoy your massage. Wondering – how it will feel to receive a massage? Asking – what do I like bast about my massage?
