Win At The Fair

Win at the fair is a game that you would find at the fair. You roll the dice and what number you get determines where you go.

That board make you lose money. We were given the task of making a board that made money if we were charging a dollar a game. My first board wasn’t that enticing because I had a zero so I changed it drastically. This is my board that I changed it to.

I swapped the 50c and 20c because the place where the 20c is, is more often landed on.

This is the proof that it made money.

I got it right on my first try though I though I could do better. I made it better by switching the directions. This actually helped when I thought it would stay the same. I think it is enticing because there is no o dollars. Though there is 20c and 50c it still seems like you’re still winning something.

Myself As A Reader

When I read I like to get into the most comfortable position possible. I read anywhere, anytime I can. I like silence to read though sometimes I read in blaring music. When I read I go completely silent unless there is a funny part of the book. The most recent book I read is Carnage. I knew it was right because it hooked me in and I wanted to keep reading. When there is a book I don’t want to read I lose my focus. My favourite book is probably Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. This is because it is action packed and about a world of monster and magic.

Birke Baehr TED talk

Birke Baehr’s message in his TED talk was that the food system is wrong  and that we should try and change it. He used his hand gestures well though a bit too much. He moved around the stage at the right time well. He got the message across by backing himself with facts and engaging the audience by saying “Hi my name is Birke Baehr.” It is human nature to listen if someone introduces themselves. To improve, Burke should have not used as much hand gestures.

DC Cartoons

People would find this picture funny at first because the guy says he will go to bed though and he does that though he just plays his phone in bed.

A message in this is that people are to addicted to social media and there phones. Another one is that people aren’t getting enough sleep because of social media.

This is important because nobody can concentrate properly and people think that if they stay up late they can become more popular.

When you properly analyse this cartoon it I think it doesn’t seem as funny.

Richard Turere TED Talk

Richard Turere TED talk is about how his invention made peace with lions. Another message is to never give up.

The main way he got the message across is his words and pictures. He hooked us in with a very confronting picture. Richard didn’t use the space that well though his tone of voice matched what he said quite well.




Digital Etiquette

Netiquette(net-i-ket) is having etiquette online if you don’t have netiquette and you post mean comments you can lead to an argument.

Flaming is when you post a mean comment

Trolls are people who surf the internet to flame people

Being anonymous is when you never give people your personal information

Clearly Communicating is by not using secret codes to people who don’t know the code, not writing in caps and saying everything.

Permission is not posting something until you have it.

Think Online

In this class we were introduced to the THINK acronym. It is a acronym you should pay attention to before posting anything.

I believe that every interaction online must be:

  • True because everybody hates reading false information
  • Helpful because everybody will have better thoughts about you
  • Inspiring because other people will copy you so you can get new ideas
  • Necessary because otherwise there is no point posting it
  • Kind because you will get a lot of mean comments from people you offended

Passion Project #description

My passion project this term is of board riding and how I like to surf and skate. The message I want to include in the film is that I like doing these things and showing that they are fun. My audience is for pretty much anybody that needs to be encouraged to try. When I started surfing I found it hard to find a good video to learn how to stand up. I hope I can do a good job at this so more children will start surfing and skating. I’m looking forward to being able to surf and call it homework. Going sideways is fun!

PP Schedule Term 2


2 Handed Strike

I chose the 2 handed strike. I have played tee ball before though I want to get better at non-preferred side.


Skill Acquisition  


My Chosen Skill:


Three Teaching Points for my skill for today’s lesson. (Research if required)

Standing side on to the tee.

Swinging the bat through

Keeping my eyes focused on the ball.

Today, working in a group of three you are going to film a demonstration of your skill. You will attempt the skill 3 times and then review the footage.


Observing my skill from the iPad footage.


Am I successfully demonstrating the three teaching points in this footage?

I had a great shot and when I watched the footage, I realised that I did every focus point I chose. I still need to work on standing side on to the ball. I don’t just do it normally.


When we played a game based on the 2 handed strike. I performed really well because I wasn’t distracted by the desire to win. I waited until I was in the best position possible.
