Perimeter maths

Walt : identify and use the perimeter rule to calculate the size of Auggie’s classroom

I was able to  understand my decimals if I am converting to metres. I found this a little hard because I couldn't understand at first but then I started to figure out and I got better at understanding. After I finished I tried to solve my problem, it took me a while to find the answer. But I re checked it and I got it right I was so proud of myself. Next time I'll try use more decimals.

Wonder - Reading

I was able to understand the meanings of different types of language features eg. personification, idioms.

I also used sticky notes to help me remember what each language feature meant. This was a bit confusing but I got the hang of it.

Next time I'll try and use these language features in my writing.

Speech 2017

Walt : deliberately choose words to create an effect on the audience

I was able to use persuade and emotive words.

Walt : use a variety of strategies to solve addition problems that involve decimal numbers.

I was able to add the hundredths first eg. right to left - hundredths, tenths, ones, tens and so on.

I found some thing hard like add the whole number and decimal number together and convert decimal numbers to fractions.
Next time I need more work on adding the whole number and decimal number together and convert decimal numbers to fractions.

Usain Bolt

Walt: Locate and evaluate information about Usain Bolt, on the internet.

Today the class had to find information about Usain Bolt.

I found this easy because I had a buddy with me and because we did a lot of research about Usain Bolt and it was really interesting learning about him.
Next time I would like to get more information about him.
I really hope you could do this again because it was really interesting.

Ghost - Making a Prediction

Walt : Make a prediction based on the cover and blurb of Ghost by Jason Reynolds.

My Reflection
I able to look carefully at the picture, we had think about the front cover and why we think it's yellow,we also had to found out why is there is a boy running on the front cover of ghost.

I found this easy and hard at the same time because doing research is kinda easy because I could understand it and there were a lot of facts about him, and I also found it hard because I didn't understand some of the questions.
Next time I would like to found more information about Jason Reynolds because I found it interesting.

Matariki Celebration - Phases of the Moon

My Refection:
I learnt that there are eight phases of the moon and I learnt what waning (it means getting smaller) and waxing meant (getting bigger).
I found this confusing because I am still learning how to figure which moon is which and I also found this amazing because I really liked learning about moons.
I hope we do this again because I really loved doing this.
Next time I will love to finish this on my first try and I would like to learn more about it.

Next time I think that I should work a little bit harder on my reading.

The Queen's Secret

I think the author wanted me to understand that it is important to listen when people tell you things, especially when it comes to secrets.  Telling secrets is maybe not okay because in the story the queen's secret got past on but it was the wrong message.
Next time i will try harder to understand my WALT.

10 Thing About Me

Walt : use advanced punctuation

We have learning how to use bullet points correctly in my 10 Things About Me slideshow.  I learnt you need to :
  • Place the bullet point in the margin.
  • Use a capital letter after the bullet point.
  • If you have written a sentence, end it with a punctuation eg. fullstop.
  • Bullet points are used to create lists.
  • Find the bullet points icon on the right hand side at top of the tool bar called bullet lists.

Next time I will try and use bullet points in more of writing.

Can you guess which of my information is true and which is a lie ?
