Why It's Great To Be Me?

It great to be me because I am young and free. I have different opportunities than others do. We all have a bright future ahead of us and all of us are capable doing something new each day. I like exploring at new limits because you never know what you will see at the end of the rainbow until you go for it. I was working with Brooklyn to complete this word cloud. My favourite word in this would have to be dreams. Because they tell you what might happen in the future.

Our main focus was capitalisation for writing.  This was  a really easy task to complete because I had an Idea already on what to do. This has been one of my favourite DLO's to complete so far this year. What we had to do was fix all the sentences on the right and answer them correctly.  This is example of what capitalisation looks like. So in that case this might help you in the future if you ever do something like this.  High possibility's it will.

Complete The Contraction

Today we had writing. For this task we had to complete the contraction. This was a really easy task to complete because all we had to do was write the contract word. My favourite word that I contracted was it. An example of an contraction is I will. The contraction to this word is I'll. My layout has a lot of room but that is OK. Here are some other contractions that you might like.

Dancer - Career DLO


 Yesterday I started a DLO about what I want to do in the future. When I grow up I might choose to be a dancer. Why? Because when I was about 5 years old I loved dancing. In this half detailed DLO I have put in the opportunity you will have getting a job as a dancer and more. This was really easy to complete but it was semi hard as well. One tip I would have to tell you is make sure you turn up with the right gear at all times. But dancing is not my favourite. Yeah. It is actually painting. I am not a very good artist and have no idea on what to do but I enjoy it a lot. This is my so called future. Hopefully it all goes well.

Through out the day I was finishing my hexaflexagon. I enjoyed crating my own designs and using my own colours. A hexaflexagon is a three sided shape that has different patterns on each side. Something I found hard about this was tring to put it together and something I found easy was choosing the colours to use. This was part of a maths project that turned out to be quite fun. My favourite side on my hexaflexagon is the on in the photo.  I hope we do this again sometime in the future.

Digi Tech

This morning we went to tech. We were finishing our digital story about healthy living in the Tamaki area. I am nearly finish this task and soon I will be moving on. We had a reviler teacher. Her name was Miss Rose. This was not an hard task to complete because I already knew what to do. Mine is based off exercise because it is important to get exercise to keep fit. I liked working on the animated story because I could create it how I wanted to.

Kate Sheppard - Sketchnote

Yesterday Mishaan and I created this Sketchnote about Kate Sheppard and the suffrage movement.  We shared information with each other to help us with our learning. This was an easy task to complete because the Kate Sheppard DLO we did gave us an idea of what to write. Mishaan and I did four boxes each. I did the top ones and she did the bottom ones including the picture. The   answers and the questions are all based on the suffrage movement.

Rewindable Learning For Dance

Today we were practising our dance for the end of the term dance production. Our dance coach was Zoe. We were split into three groups A, B and C. In our three groups we have different moves and songs. Those songs are Staying alive, I see red and Footloose. The song we are doing is Staying alive. We have practised over and over this is called rewindable . Rewindable learning is when you can watch or practice something over and over. This was really fun in every way possible. We had our very first dance practice yesterday and we have already picked up on a lot.


On Monday I started an illustration about idiom. Idiom is a group of words known by how much its has been used. I have put in different examples about idiom. An example of idiom is "Fish out of water". Meaning you are somewhere where you don't belong. This has been one of my favourite illustrations to do so far.  I have enjoyed creating my own illustration using my own words. This was not hard to do but it was not easy trying to find the right idioms. The site I used to find my idioms is from Your dictionary

Kate Sheppard

Yesterday afternoon Mishaan and I started this DLO about Kate Sheppard the leader of the suffrage movement. In our DLO you will find out different information about this powerful women. We have made this to the best of or ability. With the help of our teacher we got this done. We didn't know anything about this lady until we had a group conversation about who she is and what she did. Coming into this group as a newbie I think I have learnt a lot about this one person who changed the world with just her voice. The suffrage movement was a group of women that wanted the right to vote in the elections. This a sudden success. This is what we have done so far. Because you never know you might learn something yourself.

Digi Tech

Today at tech we went at Tamaki college. We have one more week of digi tech until we move on to our next activity. Our main focus was on healthy living in the Tamaki community. We had to make a movie on scratch to explain what healthy living is. I chose to do laziness. I am making a movie on why being lazy is not a good idea. I am still working on getting my movie done but I am almost finish. I have learnt the different parts and things I can do on scratch. The easy thing to do was pick the characters because I already knew what to choose. The hard thing to do was to choose the right background to fit my theme. This was a fun task to do.

During this block I did maths. We were learning a new topic called using coordinates to do our maths work. This was an easy task to complete. This was fun to complete because I had never done something like this before.
