Term 3 Week 6

This week we carried on our SDL. (Student Directed Learning) But this time, the Year 4s had to write their speeches so us Year 5s had to write a poem called a "Haiku Poem" and it was really fun, I liked it because of course, it was part of writing. For our poem we had to choose a season an I chose Spring, the poem has 3 lines, the lines described the season, the 1st line had to be only 5 syllables, the next line had to be 7, and then the last line was 5 again, I really enjoyed this activity and it is on my blog, it should be the post below this one, anyway, I hope I can do it again and I think it was a really good writing activity.

T3 W4 100 Word Challenge

My Reflection:
I have just made a weekly 100 Word Challenge. The topic was about a strange animal. The example was the time traveling elephant, I really like elephants so I tried using that twice but it always ended up about 300 words long, I really like the 100 Word Challenge because it's writing.  :)
This time, we had to watch a video on a sight called Vimeo.

My Explanation Writing

My Reflection:
I have been learning about explanation writing. I have made a piece of writing about how to make a piece of writing about how to make a windchime. This was really enjoyable, to make the windchimes and to write this all down. My next step is to describe any special features in my explanation

Term 3 Week 3

This week was quite different, normally the teachers would be running the recounts but this time, I got to run one! I got to run a recount workshop because of my writing skills! Not many people came like usual but I'm pretty sure they learnt something! I might do some more in the next few weeks but I'm not sure.

I think this is a good experience to have while you are small so you know better in the future! I really enjoyed doing this because I love to help others, and it just so happened to be that I made this blog post while I was running the workshop! I had no help from anyone else to run this and for a first time, I think I did a really good job!

I hope I can do this again sometime soon and maybe I can become a pro or something! I hope I can do it again and I really think I could become really good at this soon.

Explanation Writing

My Reflection:
 I have been learning about explanation writing. I watched a video from NZGetThru-What to do if there is an earthquake. After we had listened to it we had to fill in the brainstorm at the top then write our Explanation writing, I really enjoyed this activity, I wonder if we'll be doing more on Explanation Writing next week, til then I'll need to finish all my other weekly tasks.

Kensuke's Kingdom, Chapter 2: Water, Water Everywhere

My Reflection:
I have been learning about the book Kensuke's Kingdom, this week I have read Chapter 2. Along with reading it there are activities to do. Above are my activities that we had to fill out. I think this activity was really fun but I loved the activity about the turtle facts the most! That was REALLY fun!!! :)
I really enjoyed this, next week I think we are doing Chapter 3 since last week we did Chapter 1. I'm really looking forward to it and it will go right here on my blog as soon as I have finished it!
