Dear Diary (Traveling)

Walt: think critically about what we read.

Task Description: This is my Dear Diary! This is kind of the same as my previous task, instead it shows how technology has changed. I had to read 3 texts in order for me to understand this activity. I had to write a diary about my trip on the plane to Samoa and a diary for Afu about his trip on the waka! ( PS: If you don't understand this please look a my previous blog-post). Overall I think this was a great task and I learned much about it! I hope you enjoy!

Travel Past vs Present!

Walt: think critically about what we read.
Task Description: For this task we are learning about how people have traveled changed through time. In order for me to understand this activity I had to read a text about sailing back in the days and try to make connections through it. In this activity it show's how me and Afu have the differences on traveling to a place. Example: I would use the plane and Afu would use like a waka to go to wherever he is voyaging to. I had to write about write about what kind vessel will I use for me and my family, How long will my journey will take, and what would I do during the trip. I had to write this down for each me and Afu on how it's going to be like. I think I learned lot's by reading just that reading but I will of course learn more from the others. Overall I think this was a great activity that I had done. Enjoy!

Ice-cream!

Have you ever eaten homemade ice cream before? Well this is our side of the story on how me made homemade ice-cream at school. We started off by writing down the ingredients and the equipment we needed to make our homemade ice-cream. Some of the ingredients included sugar, Milk, Ice Cubes and Biscuits. As we read and wrote down the things we needed to make our homemade ice-cream we felt so excited about how it is going to end up like! The whole of Room 7 participated into making our Ice-cream. After we gathered up our ingredients we started to shake the ice-cream inside two ziplock bag, It was hard work! After that Mrs Stickland said whoever is finished sit down and get ready for your biscuits. I made my ice-cream by making it look like a ice-cream sandwich. Then for the final step we opened our mouths CRUNCH!!! It was a no for me sorry! I think we messed up and somehow got the salt inside the ice-cream! But at least it was a great day.

Castaway!

Walt: Write from the 1st person.



Have you ever been stuck on a mysterious island? As you can see the image at the top looks like someone needs desperate help! If you like to see the story of how I got stuck, But managed to use some technology of my own! Please check this link out!

Task Description: Today the Room 7 literacy got to write a story of there own on how they survived in a island. But as part of this term's topic focus (technology) in our writing we had to include the kinds of technology we used to make homes or even eat food. We also had to include good vocab in our writing so it could stand out! We then buddy checked our writing with another in order to make our writing more sense. We then created out own DLO that goes with our story. You can see mine's on the very top below my WALT. If you would like to read my story please click the link in my writing on top. Enjoy!

WARNING: THIS IS NOT A REAL STORY!

Maths Problem Solving!

Walt: understand fractions. 

Task Description: This is a new maths problem from week one! This is overdue work but I will still be explaining how I created this. To start off we always read the problem on the side. Sometimes the problems that we have relates to the things that our teacher (Mr Goodwin) talks about. So we get the knowledge from when we have mat time with our teacher. Then I write down on my maths book how I solved it - How I got the answer. So I take a photo and place it on my presentation. After I re-write how I solved again but in letters. Overall I got the hang of it and was pretty "easy"!
