Term1 Week8

This week was the last week for the pepeha art, slideshow, and typing the pepeha.  I doubt everyone will be done though, because a lot of people were still doing the art, last time I checked.  My next step is to the piece of art we're doing.

100 word challenge (Suddenly I saw)

                     ...suddenly I saw...

The glasses kid
One day I got up and looked around my neighborhood. It was a beautiful day. Suddenly I saw the cat. Now this may sound normal, but this was a cartoon cat, and it got much weirder when I touched it, and was teleported to another land. Ron, Ron! You have to save my beautiful face!  Said a voice. Then saw the glasses kid, and the bald guy chasing him. I did the only thing I could think of, I threw a rock at the bald guy. Yay I defeated Voldemort! Said the glasses kid. No I did!
Lies! Was the reply.

My pepeha

My reflection
I was learning to say where I come from and other stuff in art. This is called a pepeha. I found this work easy. My next step is to make another pepeha...?

Charlotte's web expression challenge

My Reflection
I was learning to read with proper expression, not that silly sing-song voice you learn to do in year 1. I found this tricky, because it is hard to maintain reading with expression. My next step is to use this when I  read normally.

Charlotte's web vocab challenge

My Reflection
I was learning to define certain words. I found this easy, because I already know a lot of words. My next step is to use these when writing, or talking.

Charlotte's web diagram challenge

My Reflection
I was learning to use a diagram to  get information. I found this tricky because the diagrams were saying different things. My next step is to interpret  a more complicated diagram.

This week we did The Charlotte's Web Challenge. Again. I'm almost finished.   We also did a 100 word challenge, which is going to be fun, because Mrs Melville postponed it. My next step is to do the other parts of the challenge (And do the 100 word challenge). :D

Charlotte's web stereotypes challenge

Place value L4.5

I was learning to read numbers up to decimals and millions and to say which is bigger or smaller.
The thing that helped me most was using my basic facts to help with bigger numbers
My next step is to:

- try the same activity suing bigger numbers
- use this information to move problems

Place value L4

T1 W7 :D

This week we started a challenge similar to the Blue whale challenge. This is a challenge for the novel readers, named The Charlotte's Web Challenge. Like the last one it is a range of challenges, each different to the other challenges.  The only differences are that 1) It's only for the novel readers and 2) A spider  is slightly smaller than a whale.*

*Who would've known?

Blue whale
This week we did-and still are doing-a blue whale challenge. This challenge contains 10 challenges. We were put into pairs and two pairs could work together.I am finding this challenge hard and fun.  My  next step is to do...   erm...   the parts I haven't done?
