Title
What is your Explanation about?
Why We Need the Internet
Introduction
What are you going to explain?  Why is it important for us to pay attention to what you have to say?
We all use the internet, also known as ‘wifi’. Connecting to different social networks and using it as a research tool. People ask so many social questions about the internet, Why is the internet so important to us? How can it support us as we grow? The main question is, ‘Why do we need the internet’. I mean it’s such a simple answer. To find out more, read the following below.
Paragraph One
What is the first reason why we can’t live without your chosen invention?  Why?  How will that help us?
FIrst off,

Without the internet we wouldn’t be able to contact with family and friends. Luckily we do. Having the wifi with us means that we are able to connect with everyone around us and also building new memories and sharing thoughts online. Staying connected with others makes us feel comfortable and not lonely. Keeping in contact with family can help build your confidence and encouragement.
Paragraph Two
What is the second reason why we can’t live without your chosen invention?  Why?  How will that help us?
Secondly,

As a man made invention, the internet allows us to access social networks and online websites. For example: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Vine, Google and Gmail e.t.c. Being allowed to access these networks help us with our education, and online researching for information that is needed. I mean with out these networks, students and others from around the country would be struggling with work and education. The surrounding networks and websites that students and others use, help them build more confidence around others.
Paragraph Three
What is the third reason why we can’t live without your chosen invention?  Why?  How will that help us?
My Third Reason:

Doing work at school is sometimes hard, and when writing in book it is much easier to get distracted and daydream. It is much easier to do work on the internet. This is because it is faster and much easier to do work online, without any distraction. Since we can focus on our work, we can finish it in time. This means we can then have a choice of free time or share work on our blog. Having the internet also provides us work to finish on the self management checklist. So having the internet increases the amount of free time we get instead of the other times with books
Conclusion
The conclusion sums up all the ideas and repeats a key message to end.  This could be a recommendation or a personal connection.
As written above, you have finished reading my explanation about ‘Why we need the internet’. Here somethings to remember why we need the internet. One because we would need to contact family members who overseas. Two, because I do my work online using google drive, this helps me to finish off work I haven’t finished yet. Three it is because we need to express our feeling, meaning ourselves, which means being cybersmart online.

Just imagine the internet not existing in our world (The world wide web). That is not a world I would like to live in and I don’t think others would to.

What is your Explanation about?
How to be a Good Discoverer
Introduction
What are you going to explain?  Why is it important for us to pay attention to what you have to say?
“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” Quoted by Marcel Proust.
We were all born as a discoverer, discovering new things and unexpected objects. But as we grew older, we learnt more about the surroundings around us, how trees grew, how to plant a seed and why it rained. Here’s an explanation of how to be a good discoverer.
Paragraph One
What is the first thing a good discoverer needs to do or have?  Why?  How will that help us?
To be a good discoverer you have to experience an open mind. It seems to me that this means being able to accept or show new ideas to a group or to a person. Also you must be motivated and passionate about what you are doing. Without motivation, where would we get our inspiration from? Being motivated means moving towards your achievement and being eager to know and learning about the surroundings around us.  
Paragraph Two
What is the first thing a good discoverer needs to do or have?  Why?  How will that help us?
Taking risks. Taking a risk is a big deal, meaning taking challenges and opportunities. Taking risks is easily defined as doing something you haven't done before. I mean it’s awake up call for those who don’t do anything, who don’t take on challenges that are provided for them, Who don’t realise they are leaders who people look up to.

Paragraph Three
What is the first thing a good discoverer needs to do or have?  Why?  How will that help us?
Sacrifice. Discoverers begin with sacrifice, they take the future and let go of the past. This means you can’t always use sacrifice as letting go of your life trying to save someone else. Sacrifice  for a discoverer is taking out regular night outs. By this I mean having less time with friends and family and having more time to research.
Conclusion
The conclusion sums up all the ideas and repeats a key message to end.  This could be a recommendation or a personal connection.
As written above I have included these three points, following this I bet you’ll end up with a bright future in the world of discovery. Being a discoverer also means being curious, wanting to ask life questions and wanting to know more about the world around us. Also, being a discoverer could have others wanting to be a discoverer, and when they become discoverers, many more could become one as well! Happy discovering!


This is my Explanation that I did for writing... I re-crafted it so that every paragraph made sense and every correct punctuation was in the correct place. I hope you enjoy reading my explanation about 'How to be a good discoverer.'

Also the words that have been hightlighted and underlined, are a goal I have achieved. Before my goal was to reach R4, and now I have acheived that goal. My next step in spelling is to use my letter/sounds, spelling rules, and meaningful chunks i.e: prefix, suffix, root words.

In writing I would like to gain ideas that are complex and elaborated.

Please leave wonderful and caring comments. Thank you!!
