I am still reading To love a sunburnt country, by Jackie FreBook Titles:
‘Developing Characters’: Think about a book character. How has the author developed the character? Has the author made the character ‘real’ with positive, negative and interesting personality and physical traits? Complete the PMI on the character’s traits to find out!
I am doing mien on a girl named Mrs Hughendorn who ended up a prisoner of war with Nancy (the main character).
- she is very generous
- she is kind
- she is helpful
she is a very kind and thoughtful person but she hasn’t really opened up much to the group
she is an Interesting or mysteries with her background but other than that I think I have gotten to know her very well.
Hey guys hear is my learning post this week,
This week in maths we started a new unit called Problem solving. We have each have a problem solving book witch we must bring in on every Thursday when we get 1 hour to work on the last weeks problem, it is also time we can work together and compare answerers.
In English this week I have really just been working on seeds. this week when I got spare time this week I was working on my TED stuff.
In inquiry this week we had our TED evening. It was lots of work to get myself ready to present. I first had to make a few changes to my script. Then I just read it over and over till I had it memorized. I also made a slideshow to go with it. on the night I was very nerves and at the start I forgot to click the clicker and my slideshow was behind 🙁 but other than that it kind of went well.
My reading log this week is based on ‘The girl from snowy river’ By Jackie French. I find this book inspirational because its about a girl who goes thru rough times but just pushes thru and keeps a smile on her face. plus there’s an awesome ghost from the future 🙂
Theme: Choose a recently read book. What morals or messages do you think the author was trying to impart to the reader? Explain, giving examples from the book.
I think the main message was to keep going and think of good things. This book is set in 1919 world war 1 still casts its shadows across the valley in Australia, Flintily (the main character) at 16 is to look after her younger siblings. Her older brother Andy is droving for the year to clear his head from the war.
This weeks reading log
This term I would like to finish the book I am reading at the moment and read the next book in the saga. I am enjoying the history books at the moment but when I finish this saga I think I will start a book a friend recommended to me from Family and friends. I don’t really think that I have any other goals or new routines so I guess that’s all.
This team I think I am just going to make bracelets but instead of making the same one every time I am going to be trying heaps of different designs because last time that got a bit boring. I think I would also like to make my own bracelet. I already know the basis to making a bracelet but would like to extend my knowledge.
In maths this week we started a new project called building views. in this project you get the front and side view of a “building” that you have to try and make on a 4 by 4 grid with as little and most blocks.
In English this week we have been working on seeds. I have started a new seed flood, it is sort of similar to the one I did last term called Fire but also sort of the opposite.
in inquiry I have decided to do my ted script live. I have changed my script a little but not much. I think I will be working on my slide show then my actual performance.
For my iproject presentation I had a picture of a bracelet that I made, for my iproject I made some bracelets and I will sell them tomorrow. the expo went pretty well, everyone who came said they like the idea. Lots of people said they would like to buy one. unfortunately Mrs Russell didn’t reply to my email so there will not be a pink day. ???
Hello, this is my learning this week
well we didn’t really do maths this week but in maths groups time we are doing crowd investigation on Excel. mine sort of worked but I think I may have got the number wrong for one of the places. I am studying the crowds of the Taylor swift world tour 🙂
in English I have been working on a peace of writing called ‘Fire’ its about a fire. I am also waiting for a conference, I was also working on a TED script
In inquiry we have been doing TED scripts. I have just finished recording but I would like to re record the first session of it.
I have decided I would like to extend my iproject so I will still sell the bracelets but I would also like to have a pink day were all middle school will dress in pink and bring a gold coin donation (for breast cancer). I have emailed Mr Panckridge and Mrs Russell, so at the moment I am just waiting for a response. I have also made some more bracelets. I think I will also sell some hexa-flexagons (witch are hexagon shaped peace of paper that switches colour when you flex it) because they were poplour when I brought some I made to school.
hello, this is my learning post this week
in maths groups this week I learnt that chance also flows with fractions decimals and percentages. We also filled in a sheet with some activity’s but right when I finished and was going to go and ask Ms Stafford for another sheet there was a fire drill alarm, so we all evacuated to the oval.
in inquiry this week we did our first draft conference. These conferences are just like writers workshop conferences, but for our TED scripts. some of the feedback I got was:
I needed to add a sortie as an egsample of all the stories, I also need to read it louder.
in masterclass this week I went to the guru session, we had a photography scavenger hunt. we had to take a photo of different things. the only thing I didn’t get was the thing with a shadow because it was misty all day today, the sun was behind a cloud so there was no shadows. 🙁
