2 Words 1 minute - Winter Olympics


This year the winter Olympics was held in Pyeongchang which is in south Korea.
This happened in February the 9th to February the 25th. There were teams
contributing in this event from other countries. They were showing respect,
excellence and good sportsmanship. There were lot of teams wearing equipment for many
different types of winter sports. Most of the sport were on ice and snow. I saw that there
was lot of practice put into the sport. The countries taking part in this event were
Canada, China, Africa, Japan, South Korea, North Korea, Russia including New Zealand and
other countries coming to compete. The theme was passion connected. There were
winners and there were athletes losing. Each team tried hard and put in lots of effort.
There was lots cheering and enthusiasm from the audience. The sports that was played was
ice hockey, figure skating, the luge, skiing, freestyle skiing, snowboarding and the skeleton.
My favorite sports that  was played were figure skating and ice hockey. My least favorite sport
(because it is dangerous looking) was the luge…

179 words written down...

Today we used the ‘2 words 1 minute’ challenge to write a description about the Winter Olympics. After talking in pairs about the things we knew about the winter Olympics we created a list of words (vocabulary) that would help us write our description. We chose the words ‘equipment’ and ‘respect’ to help us think about what we were going to write.

We talked about ideas with a partner, then we had 1 minute to put those ideas into sentences.
We had to try our best to use all the words on our vocab list. After the minute was up we had 2 minutes
to reread what we had written and make changes if anything didn’t make sense or if we had words
and punctuation in the wrong place. When we finished checking we had 2 more minutes to carry
on writing our descriptions.

The highlighted words are the words I used from my word list. I did well in making sure my sentences made sense. I need to remember to focus on using the words on the list that describes the Pyeong Chang Olympics.
