Spring haiku poem

My Reflection
I was learning how to make a haiku poem. We had to write it about a season. I did spring. I found this tricky because I did not know how to find the number of syllables. My next step is to write a haiku without using an online syllable dictionary.

The Pelisodopholus
 It has been sighted all round the southern hemisphere. The pelisodopholus is a mythological creature, which up until now has never been caught. It is now held in the Night Zoo.
16/9 3037
THE PELISODOPHOLUS HAS ESCAPED! There seem to be no signs of escape, oh wait he's just sleeping in a corner.  Oh no, gerbils! The gerbils are in the pelisodopholus cage! Why does the Night Zoo even have gerbils anyway!
Description Of The Pelisodopholus:
It looks remarkably like a penguin, but it has a tail, antennae and a sign that says either I am not a penguin or I am an unsuspecting pelisodopholus. The predator of the pelisodopholus is the gerbil.

How to make a wind chime explanation writing

I am going to explain how to make a clay wind chime. Do you like hanging ornaments ( *cough* wind chime.)?         
Wind chimes are hanging ornaments which make a sound when the wind blows.
Wind chimes can be made from many things, clay, metal, glass even shell!
For a clay wind chime, you need clay, string, scissors, cardboard, paper and a pencil.
Firstly, draw your design onto paper. Secondly, copy that design to a piece of cardboard and then cut out the cardboard to make a stencil. Next, cut out the shape on the clay. Finally, leave the clay to dry for a week or more.
Use your new wind chime anywhere with wind and a thing to hang it on. It could be in your garden, on a balcony, Anywhere!
Now you know how to make an wind chime. Special things about a wind chime are:  Different shapes and sizes, nice sound and lots of possible materials.

Term 2 Week 3

This week we had the speech finals. Unfortunately none of the people from our class got into the final finals ( I wonder if there will be a final final finals). My next step is to get into the finals ( but not the final finals or the final final finals, unless mangoes fall from the sky and if that happens there won't be a finals,final finals or a final final finals). Speeches are really complicated!

Kensuke's Kingdom Chapter 2

My reflection 1
I was learning to use labels and diagrams to describe one of the animals that Michael saw in the book Kensuke's Kingdom. I found this easy because TURTLES ARE AWESOME. I found the facts at wikipedia. My next step is to do this again but about dolphins
My Reflection 2
I was learning to read some text and answer questions about it. I found this hard because it was tricky to find the text I needed. My next step is to answer more!

My reflection
