In the holidays I went to my Aunty Maude’s house.  We layed in the soft warm blankets and watched movie’s.  “Oooh a long pink snake” I said describing my lollie.  “Mmm a crunchy chewy pebble”I said.  “Ahh a sour pineapple and chewing gum.  Boom Bang was the funny movie we were watching.”Look my favourite parts on”. I yelled while shaking my Aunty.  “Ohhh I’m tired”.I said slowly going to sleep.

Show don't tell.

A few days ago Room 17 had to write a story in a third person about going into a scary forest.I think I done well at using my imagination.But I think I need to work on using more describing words.

As he  was walking through the misty fog he could see lots of tree’s swaying side to side and the sticks were crackling like someone was standing on it. He could feel trancherlers  crawling up his legs,he could see zombies coming out of their graves.  Witch's flying up in the sky.  As he was walking over a slippery bridge blood was  squirted on the trees.  Skeletons  scattered on the ground. Vampires leaping from tree to tree.  Shadows circling around him.  Little girls running like crazy.  People walking around with no eyeballs.  He could hear clowns laughing in the distance.As he was walking he could hear giants snoring.  Then suddenly...

The girl who changed faces.

add detail to our narrative writing to make it interesting to our reader

Success Criteria

- use descriptive details (use story web)

- use different sentence beginnings and types

- use expressive vocabulary

- describe the event so the reader feels as though they are there

- create a narrative

A few weeks ago Room 17 got to do their own narrative writing about a girl who goes into a foresst and she turns into a witch.I think a done well at describing the forest.I think I need to work on trying to be more imaginative in my story.

One hot and sunny day there was a little girl named Christy she was very nice and beautiful with long blond straight hair and blue eyes as blue as the ocean.Christy was playing hiding go seek with some other children so Christy ran into a mysterious forest with streaming waterfalls and pink blossoms.”Tweet tweet”she heard as birds chirping and a beautiful spider web shining in the sun She ran around looking for a hiding spot when she spotted a light red shiny apple, she took a bite. Suddenly her face started bubbling and she turned into a green hideous witch. As she sat on a rock she started to weep then and old woman came along, her name was Mary she had long gray hair and a dark black cloak that is camoflauge at night. Mary whispered. “Here child, wear this tiara and you will transform back into a little girl again” So Christy put on the tiara and she transformed back into a girl again.”I found you” as the children yelled. In the end no one had found the apple ever again and Christy never saw Mary again either.

Show don't tell

Today in writing I wrote a story about hiding.

We had to try to show it not tell it.I think I done well in using describing words and i think i need to get better at putting more information about were I was.

“Please don’t find me please don’t find me”I thought to myself.My hands were shaking my heart was pounding I could see pitch black.”Ready or not here I come”.I heard near by.”You cant find me you cant find me”I whispered to myself a ray of light was coming in as I was peeping through the light.I could hear big footsteps getting closer and closer. I was trying not to move standing there as straight as a statue I thought I was safe behind lots of clothes.It felt like hours had  gone past “Lets get this over and done with”I said with a big frown on my face.”Here I am come and get me” I could here lots of children racing down the hallway.I found you”.

Success Criteria  
- have you used a hook?
- included the main parts (just stated no detail YET!)
- great words used (powerful verbs, specific nouns, great adjectives)

Go wider Go wider”!!!Miss Wihongi yelled.It was Tuesday afternoon and I was at fire brigade cup when we were practising 3’s and up, and to touch people with two hands. We got in a group of three or four when I was running behind Daniel he yelled. “Hine catch”. So ran up and he passed me the ball when I ran Keishana tried to touch me but I ran away when I was close to the try line I heard everyone cheering for me. I ran with a big smile on my face and I scored. When I ran past the finish line and all my friends came to me and hugged me or patted me on the back I had a little smile but I didn't show it. That was the time I felt successful.

The Bully.

This week we were making a dvolver movie to show people how to be hurt-free.  I think I done well at being the bully and I think I need to use more nicer words.

Fundraising for my cousin’s trip to Italy.

WALT recount an exciting event so that our reader knows what happened and how we felt.

It was 6.00 on Saturday morning I woke and got dressed.   “Nana,nana is the cake ready yet?”I yelled sitting on the seat.  I could smell the delicious smell from out of the oven. the cake was ready. “Can I make the icing?”I asked.  
"Yes”replied nana. I put all the ingredients in and started to mix. it was fun.

Me and my cousin,Te Awe and Haki dashed to the van and hopped in. I was bursting for air while nana was walking  slowly down the veranda with the cake. we drove to the market in Kawakawa.

“Hine come and help put up the store”yelled nana.  I felt giggly and silly because the gazebo leg hit my shoulder .

“Mum aunty” I screamed.  I felt surprised when my mum and aunty had arrived  I cuddled them both. Before the market had started we had to take out the bbq. It was really heavy, when we finished my hands felt numb.

When the market had finished I slowly walked to the van when everyone hopped in. I felt tired on our way home and we listened to some soft music.

My learning reflection.

Today in Room 17 my teacher Miss Newton told us to do a reflection on how we've been doing this year because this is the end of the term .

What was your best moment in term one? Why?
The best moment in term one  was when I got given my chrome book.
Because I could learn new things in a different way.
What was the most important thing you learnt?
The most important thing I learnt was how
to use my chrome book.
What subject do you do the best in this term and why?
The subject I did best in term one was in maths because
I could understand what I had to do.  

What subject did you not do so well in and why?
The subject I didn't do so well in was using my chrome book
it was because I had to ask someone how do I do things.

Did I manage my time wisely this term? How? e.g. finishing most tasks, working independently.
I didn't manage to finish all my work wisely but I finished some of my task
sometimes I worked independently but sometimes I was being a little lazy.

What can I do differently next term to improve? Why?
Next term I think I should do  better in finishing of my work much more quicker and try not to ask anyone for help.
Give yourself smiley faces out of 10 to show how well you have done this term:

☺/10 ☺/4
