Te taiao o tamaki

Walt: make connections across multiple texts.
This year we are learning about Te Taiao Tamaki. I am really excited because I have never learnt about this, and I really want to know more about it. I also have this thing called Quad blogging if you don't know what quad blogging is well let me tell you. Quad blogging is when someone picks 3 people for you to comment on their blogs so it is like your buddy's with someone you don't know. So yeah I am really looking forward to that.

The Race!

Walt: We are learning how to write a recount.

Have you ever raced your class on a field before? Well our lesson was to race on our school field. I thought we were just going to do normal work on our chromebooks, but I was wrong. It was just a normal day until our teacher told us to line up outside and put our shoes on.

Surprisingly we had to line up he told us to be quiet while walking i was so confused, but excited at the same time. After walking and walking we stopped at the field. He told us to line up under the goal post now that’s when I was confused. In a serious way he told us that we were to run down to the end of the field where the other goal post was and back to this one.

I wasn’t actually that worried about coming last because he told us it wasn’t a race after all. He told us to not make a noise because there were other classes. When I heard that we weren’t even allowed to scream I wasn’t that worried because who would scream when they're running.

Go! Our teacher said Sprinting down to the other goal post I bursted out with laughter even though I thought I wouldn’t be screaming like that. I was only laughing because my friend Amelia tripped over, well yeah she is our class clown. Running back I didn’t care what was happening I was just so happy that I got to sit down.

Finally we finished the run well more like 100 meter run anyway I was so happy we were done. Later on our teacher put us into two groups so we could have a drink. Feeling the water come into my mouth I felt like I was going up to heaven. Just so you know I am never ever doing that again.

Task Description: Well believe it or not we didn't really know what wee were going to to do today we were just so confused. but we knew that we were going to do a recount well I knew. We had discuss about what a recount iss what you need to write in a recount. Hope you enjoy my family.

Newspaper Towers

Walt: write a recount about our experience.
Have you ever made a tall tower out of newspaper before? Well my teacher might be crazy, but today our lesson was to make the tallest newspaper tower. Funny thing to say it was actually kind of hard.

When my teacher said that we had to make the tallest towers we could make out of newspaper. I was like yeah I am cool with that, but in the inside I was kind of nervous. He told us we only got to have 7 newspapers we could use to make a tower. Then that's when I thought are you out of your mind we need more paper than that. Yes I was kind of nervous, but I was ready.

To get started I had to pick some buddies that were perfect for my team . My team was perfect the people that was in my group was Naomi, Paikea, Amelia, Trendy, makayla and Ayla. Once my team was sorted out we got a paper and pencil from our teacher so we could do our planning. I was also surprised that everything was actually working out fine, and no one in the group was bossy everyone was just giving in great ideas. This was turning out how I never expected it was going to be like.

When we started building We had a couple of changes up that were completely different from our plan. We were taking our time then as soon as I saw the other teams their tower was already getting higher then ours. So we had to make a bunch of newspaper balls to make the newspaper tower stand, and we rolled the other papers, and stack them ontop of each other. Yes you can say was there any problems? Well yes there was, because I was a little fired up just of making a newspaper tower. I think it was because we only had a little bit time, but yeah I still had fun with my team oh yeah I am also sorry.

Doing this lesson was really really awful I felt so angry and didn’t feel like a good thing to do we all yelling at each other. I would never do this again, and as you can see I am saying things that you could tell I did not like it. I do have to say that I actually learnt something it was to never ever give up even if I have a little bit time to finish it, Also I won’t forget I learnt how to work as a team.

Task Description: Doing this was hard Yes there was bossy people and problems. But the good thing is that we came 3rd in the hole thing. This was really awful but it was fun to come a place at least. Hope you enjoy my story.

Eating chicken flavoured worms!!

Walt: write quality introductions.                                                                                           Image attribution
Has your teacher ever fed you chicken flavoured worms before? Well believe it or not our teacher must of had too much coffee, because he actually fed us chicken flavoured worms. Weird thing to say but they were actually pretty good.

Introduction Rubric

My introduction is boring.
It is difficult to read.
My introduction is easy to read and has some interest for my audience.
My audience is hooked into my subject, it grabs their interest so they feel like they want to read more.
When someone reads my introduction they are left feeling intrigued. They can't wait to read more.
My introduction does not tell the reader what my writing is going to be about.
My audience has some idea about what I am writing about.
My audience is clear what I am writing about.
My introduction lets the reader know the direction and purpose of my writing.
Task Description: In this lesson we had to eat noodles, but pretend it was actually worms. We had to write a sentence separately for our intro. Then give our self a mark on the rubric above. Got to say I actually felt for it.
