Room 28/29 Class Korowai

My Reflection:

In Term 1 of 2015, our class make a Korowai (cloak). First we got a strip of paper, then we got some markers and writ our names and some school values on them. When we were finished we put them in a pile, the next day we got a paper leaf, colored it, and put our name on it. When we finished our leafs, the strips of paper were weaved together and looked really cool, and our leafs went on the top. I enjoyed this activity, and it was fun to write and draw on the strips of paper and the leafs. The next step could be making a cloak someone can actually wear! That would be cool.

Term 4 Week 6

On Wednesday I was sick. I have no idea what happened to me, but when I woke up I was very pail and had a bit of a temperature, so I was just reading a book in bed.

When I had finished my story I watched movies on the couch. I had a realllllly big headache and I got my blanket that has a hoodie over me while I was lying down, but it was in a type of angel which made me get a reallllly sore neck, so I had to sit up.

After I watched my first movie, I watched another, and I had my hoodie on, but it made my head hurt even more, it was because my head was getting really hot, so I got some juice to have while I watched the movies. I kept going back for more, but then I got a sore stomach and I kept going to the bathroom.

I watched 4 movies and went onto the computer to do some school work and play Minecraft, also with my pet "Pou" (computer game thing).

So that was what I did when I was sick. I missed out on swimming and bike skills, but I would have rather stayed home in that condition.

My Reflection:
I have been learning to find adjectives, adverbs and similes in stories. I read  Thumbelina. Then I made a list of all the similes, adjectives and adverbs. This was a reading activity. It took a while to read the whole story and stop to write down the words onto my list, but it was the story wasn’t that bad, I guess. My next step is to add adjectives to my own stories.

Te Tuhi Trip-Making a Callage

My Reflection:
I have been learning about collages. I went on a trip with Room 29 to Te Tuhi to learn about them and make one. The picture above is my collage, but I didn't have enough time to finish it. For my collage, I used paint, colored paper and pictures from old calendars, just like everyone else. 

We started with a piece of paper, then we got some smaller and colored pieces to stick on our page, but we could only use about 3 or 4 pieces. 

After that we got given pictures from calendars and a ink pad kind of thing. Then we all got a pencil and but the calendar piece on top of the ink pad, then traced the pencil around what we wanted on our collage.
When we had done tracing, there was ink on our paper from the tracing.

After that we cut out the picture we traced before and stuck it on our paper, we were expose to put it over where we traced but I accidentally moved mine half way through tracing it, so you would be able to see ink on around my picture and it would look strange, so I put my lizard on top of the ink in a type of angle so you could see the ink but I also put it in a way so you couldn't see that the ink was a little out of shape. 

My next step is to use different materials to make my collage.

Term 4 Week 5

This week I'm going to talk about a really boring subject:

Reading :l

On Monday I went to the library, I issued 2 books, both by Andy Griffiths. I got "Just Shocking" and "Just Doomed". I really like those books, the "Just" series. There's Just Crazy, Stupid, Tricking, Shocking, Doomed, Annoying, Disgusting and more! There are also lots of other books by him and they are all really cool and funny! In fact, I red a book to my step-cousin and she was cracking up laughing through it!

My personal favourite is in Just Stupid or Just Crazy, I think it's Just Stupid, yea, it is, I'm 99.9% sure it is, anyway, it's called "Expel Me!" and "Dum-dum" they are soooooooo funny :D

They are all filled with funny stories, right now I'm reading Just Shocking and Just Doomed, I read 1 story from 1 book, then change around. (I'm so smart!)

By the way, I've read all the books in the "Just" series if I didn't say that already.

My Fractured Fairytale

Term 4 Week 4

On the weekend, it was very boring. So maybe this recount should be boring.

On Saturday, I went to my friend's Halloween Party. We arrived late so it was a little boring because most of the kids left. But there were a few people I knew there. I was really bored, I was just eating stuff from the table, but then I started playing on my friend's scooter.

I was going around the little circle at the bottom of their street with my scooter while some other kids were playing tag. I was really close to crashing, like, saved by 5 centimeters. I was being really careful about where I was riding.

After a while my friend's little brother starting casing me around on this really small bike. He fell of every 5 seconds because it was so small. Eventually he started chasing me down the street but he stopped almost instantly, I was too fast.

While I was just scooting around on the scooter, a boy came up to me and asked if we could have a race going in a circle, but I said that wasn't fair because the person in the middle would be going on a shorter track. So we just decided to go straight, I told him he would properly win because I was in these sandals and they were a bit too big for me, so he said I could have a head start, but I said I didn't need it.

So we started racing, he was on his feet, but I was on the scooter, and I won. I didn't brag or anything, I wasn't planning on winning, but he was pretty fast. So that was the end of that.

After a while all the kids went inside and watched TV except me, I played on the scooter a little more, it was pretty dark. There were these caramel popcorn things inside a muffin rapper thing, and they were SOOOOOOOOO nice! I had about 8 of them, but my stomach was hurting so much! So I just went inside and watched TV.

After a while, we went home, and when we went home, I went to bed.

The End
