The Legend Of Paikea Retelling

My Reflection
I was learning to retell a legend in a new way. I decided to retell it from Ruatapu's point of view. I found this tricky because it was difficult to translate the story into my own words. This version was different from the draft because I wanted it to be more from Ruatapu's point of view, not just a story that gave him a little bit of slack. My next step is to retell a story from another culture, not Maori.

First day of school description

My Reflection

I was learning to use my senses to add detail to my writing. I found this difficultish (That's a word now) because I had to do it twice AND I had to remember to skip lines in the draft. My next step is to take a better picture (Curse you Chromebook camera!).
