My Reflection Diary

During this year I have been doing really cool subjects on my netbook. It is better than paper and pencil because when I was in year four. Did you know last year my favourite subject was writing and a little bit of maths? Guess what my favourite subject is still writing?

Reading is not my thing and also maths because I just don’t get It and also I don’t really think It is fun at all but I want to achieve next year so my report card could be very good and great.

Every day I try to manage my time wisely so that I could do free stuff on my netbook and also outside.

I get golden time all the time because I get my work done fast and I kind of manage my time wisely so I could make cakes or cupcakes with my teacher.

Next year I am going to listen to the teacher and make sure I do not get in trouble all the time.

News Article

During 6pm my grandmother said to me,"Look 15 kids in USA were shot by a man who didn't take charge"! 

I said to my grandmother,"What did you say 15 kids got shot in USA OMG"! What a shock! That is so sad. I think that it is really disappointing! NO it is disappointing! "Ohh that's right"! said my cousin. We hope those kids rest in peace well they are in heaven.

The killer was a man who did not take charge and also did horrible things to lovely boys and girls but he shot himself so he couldn't go to jail and live his life there!! He should be very ashamed of himself for a long time!! He was so not cool because what he did to kids and also a teacher.

The teacher was very kind to the kids at school and also she would give out cake for free and make also make cupcakes for all the teachers in the school!! "Wow that is so cool"! said my grandmother! She said to me, If somebody who try's and kill you before me I will always be right beside you and also I will be the light to guide you"! I said back to my grandmother, " I will always be there for you too"!

Santa Claus

During a hot summers day Santa Claus was giving out present but suddenly one of his reindeers feel asleep then santa landed on a old boat. “I was very lucky because If I didn’t land on this old boat I could of been soaking wet”, said santa!

Santa was so cross with the reindeer he said to him or her to never ever fall asleep again! When santa finished getting angry at the reindeer it needed to do chores for santa claus and make sure that santa doesn’t get sick in the north pole.

Instead of giving present to little kids at home he decided to give his present out at the beach where kids love to play and swim. It was reindeers Idea so that the reindeer doesn’t need to do those things for santa and that he could get his other job back.

Santa gave the reindeers job back and then the reindeer was happy but he needed to do one more thing he had to make sure that santa didn’t get sick. OH NO! The reindeer didn’t look after santa!

Five Years later santa was back to normal then the reindeer got his job back and they lived happily ever after!

Netbook Reflection 2012

During year four I was using paper and pencil. “Boring Right!” But now I use my a really cool netbook. It is kind of like a laptop but more amazing and more fantastic than pencil and paper. 

Pencil and paper was the only thing that I could only use when I was small and a little bigger. “That is it! I don't want to use paper and pencil ever again”, I said to myself. I was really sad that time when I was using paper and pencil but, now I could smile because I have a brand new netbook. Woo hoo!

When I first got my netbook I was thrilled but I was frustrated at the same time too
because I didn’t know how to use my netbook but a couple of teachers helped me and then I was so very happy!

About my netbook being a learning tool is great anyway and so very exciting because I get to learn how to write narratives and also recounts that I could share to people around the world. They could see it on my cool blog!

Next year I will not play games I will do my work and homework to because it is more important than a game.

Hope you like my netbook reflection.

Jumping the number line

Toy Paper Man

If you would like to check at my toy just click on this link

During The afternoon Room Fourteen were creating their favourite toys. Our teacher Miss Ouano told us to write instructions so we could not only tell our school about our favourite toys and how to make our special toys on our blogs. We are also telling people around the world  about our toys that we love.

My toy is a paper man that gets weaved and gets paper cuts all round its body. If you want to make a paper man just do these easy peasy steps. First up you would need some coloured paper and also you would need some scissors so you could cut it into long strips so that when you weave it you can cut its body and so it makes paper cuts like I said befor.   

Last but not least you just need to put it together and wolha.  

I love paper mans because they make me happy.
It is the best toy that I ever had in the world and also it is the thing that makes my heart beating. You should try making a paper man because its not for making you happy its for making you smile each and every day. You should try and make a paper man befor paper run’s out.

Narrative Writing

During a hot summers day Kimberley Ouano was so hungry she didn’t want to buy bread or milk for her family because they don’t buy anything she wanted and needed for a trip and also school.

Kimberley decided to just spend money on herself and got her a brand new house so she could relax and have a rest from her mother getting angry very fast.
When she was trying to sleep she dreamed that her family went on a trip and lifted her behind in New York city. Suddenly  She was out of money and out of food too.

She went back home and talked with her mother. Her mother said to her,”I missed you where have you been you must be hungry”!  

Then Kimberley felt well because that was the best thing that her mum ever said that to her and told her mum this,” I send all of the money on me and didn’t care about you because when I was 2 you didn’t care about me but know you do and I love you mum”!

Blue Whales

Did you know that the great big blue whales are the most largest and living animal in the sea and did you know that a killer whale is very small?

Blue great whales are very big and kind of long. They are very massive! I heard that some dinosaurs were larger than the blue great whales but the dinosaurs died along time ago.
The great blue whales are the largest animal and happens to live in the sea. It is not a fish because the mother great blue whale feeds her baby calf with milk.

Most whales measure 20 metres and grow over 30 metres. Did you know that they weigh 250 tonnes and did you know that it is heavy than a big barge?

Maths Writing

Maths Writing

During maths time room fourteen was making fraction with play dough. 

Maths is the best part of my learning but guess what was more cool and fantastic. Room fourteen went to learn with play dough and doing fractions with the play dough. I said to my teacher,”What do you mean”. She meant to me that my maths group is going to do fractions with play dough.

Did you know that it felt so squishy,gooey,smooth and melted chocolate?

Fraction are when you can split an eel into equal parts and split a chocolate bar in different ways. This term we are doing this because it is apart of maths and it is very great to me as a maths activity! 

I hope and wish that I will do this again because it is very cool,great,fantastic,awesome and amazing maths activity!

Best Cross Country Ever!

Nine year old girls and boys were lining up for cross country at room 18. This is so that Mr.Burt  could lead us to the path where we had to run.

Mr.Burt's clappers were telling us to run so we can get very fit, but when it came to muddy paths and also massive puddles it was horrible!

Well I was running I saw creeks, lakes, people watching out for me and also I saw a whole lot of nature.

Fourth was the place that I really needed but I came fifth, because I was not in shape and I did not feel well. At least I came in good mood when I finished!

I really enjoyed cross country because it was amazing, fantastic, cool, awesome and great. I hope that there will be  another cross country.

Olympic Opening ceremony

Mike Mcroberts was reporting at the Kiwi House in london for the Olympic opening ceremony in last night. New Zealanders were cheering and were waving their flags at the Kiwi House.

Did you know that there were fireworks, dancing, singing, instruments, medals? The fireworks were so amazing and fantastic that it blew me away!

Mr. Bean was playing an instrument at the opening ceremony and he was so bored that he fell asleep and had a perfect dream.

It would be so cool going in a helicopter because I heard that James Bond and Queen Elizabeth went into a helicopter so they can see the olympic opening ceremony.

If I was in the audience or crowd I would be so thrilled and maybe fainting already and I will be cheering and screaming for my team NZ! When you were watching the olympic opening ceremony did you see the fiery olympic rings on prime?

Josh and the Tooth Fairy

When my teeth
comes out I put it under my soft pillow and sometimes I kind of put it a glass

Well my tooth fairy leaves me a gold coin so I could spend it on myself. Did you know that Josh lives on a cool farm called country farm.

When I heard that
Josh’s grandmother said,’’ When she was a little girl she use to put her tooth in a glass of water so that the tooth fairy can come and give her something that she wanted".

Josh is very wrong about putting his tooth underneath the kitchen mat because when his dad was a little boy he use to put it under the kitchen mat. Did you know that the tooth fairy gave a gold coin to josh at night?

I think dad put his cow teeth under the mat so he could trick josh to get the tooth fairy to come to and give him a gold coin but he got a pile of hay. Maybe the tooth fairy didn’t come because that wasn’t a person tooth.

Rebekah's Olympic Flag

The five interlocking rings are on the Olympic flag are so beautiful!

Did you know that the colours of the rings are blue, yellow, black,g reen and also red and on a white background?

I heard that the five parts of the rings were representing a movement.

 I can not believe that because the Olympic continents are countries like this Africa,America,Asia,Australia and Europe!

Water Polo the Olympics

My Olympic event sport is water polo. It is about men and women playing like soccer but they use their hands instead of legs. I heard that they play in the water because that's why it is called water polo. I picked this amazing and fantastic Olympics sport because it sounds and looks very interesting.

This sport is very wet and kind of like a hard game in the Olympics because you have to game  that you can play. In the water  you use a ball to get a score. The game  haves rules like this you can't use your legs and you can not swim  because if you do swim that you will be cheating to get a score! If you want to win your game you really have you rock out to it and you pretty much have to make sure that you are working very hard with your buddy's!

In1897 the sport water polo started and it was made by New Yorkers. Harold Reader created the first American rules for discipline. Water Polo started in the Paris 1900 games.    

If you want to play water polo you really need equipment like a swimsuit and a ball.

My olympic event space is in the pools. I love water polo because that’s my favourite olympic sport!!!!!!

Rebekah Term Two Reflection

This term I have learnt to make a presentations and also searching for clues or answers in the book. Have you heard that in assembly there is a korero called finish off your work properly ?

Do you know what comprehension means ? It means that you have to understand the story that you are reading and also finish it off . I think I have to show my reading in different ways so I could improve it to my teacher and also my family !!!! Do you want to improve your reading to someone ???? Showing examples to my teacher would be kind of frustrating . I love to answer questions because I like to turn them into writing so I could make it wonderful !!!!

I didn't like the way I done my reading because my report said , “I was below” , and I felt very sad and angry !!!! Finding awesomer in the books is very hard sometimes and it is not good with me. Also my reading task that I do it is not done properly and also it doesn't go well with myself . I don’t like to rush because it make my work difficult !!!!

I have to make my reading improve next year so I could have a great report !!!!

Andy Warhol Biography

I really enjoy looking at the bright colours and bold lines that are used for Andy Warhol’s art. Warhol was a pop artist who was full of life and talent and also he is a awesome man. Did you know that he was the man and the one who draws and silk screened celebrities ?

Did you know that he was born in August 6th 1928? He was born in USA. His lovely parents came from Slovakia. Andy had this Disease that is called Chorea Disease when he was 8 years old. He really desired to draw pictures of celebrities and his mum use to give him a chocolate ever time he finished a picture on his coloring book.

The college  that warhol went to was Schenley high school. The people at school were not his friends because he was very quiet then them and also because warhol had pale skin and white-blonde hair. Did you know that Warhol use to collect  celebrity autographed photos ? The university that Warhol went to was Carnegie Institute of Technology, where he graduated in 1949 with a major in pictorial design.

In the 1960’s Andy  began creating the paintings he is best known for today and also. Warhol had people in his factory like people were in films that he made, some were writers or artists, some were celebrities.

Andy Warhol was an admirable artistic and if he was still alive he would be proud of himself and also he is a great, awesome, fantastic, cool, and lovely man !!!!!!!!!
