I know I can do it when I can write sentences containing facts about myself.
You now know so much about Information Texts now and how to tell a fact from an opinion.
A fact is something that is true. For example: A Dog has a tail.
An opinion is how you feel about something. For example: I love dogs, they are my favourite animal.
Now that you are an expert on facts, today you are going to write some facts about yourself.
Using the example below as a guide, write some facts about yourself. You can do it in full sentences or dot points.
Draw a picture of yourself once you have finished your writing.
