Super Power Writing!

WALT:  Write effective paragraphs using juicy and exciting words.

Flying, flying, flying…  if I had a superpower it would be flying. One of the reasons why flying would be my top pick for super powers is so that, I can hover and get around big spaces like my class room and house because I have a broken leg. Flying would also be helpful for going to places with my family like to a playground or some place like that.

If I could possess this power and I could control it, for example, if I wanted to go super sonic speed,  I could go supersonic speed and if I want to go snail slow I could go snail slow. Flying would also be very helpful for flying to school and other places like that. I could save people on the road like a little kids who cross the road. Flying would probably feel like a dog sticking it’s head out the window of a car with all the breeze coming into it’s face. It would be very nice to because when my family fly to another country, I can fly right next to them.    

Rubric Marked By: Heather

If I had powers I would do all these things but mostly save people on the road, on mountains planes and helicopters. I would save people who have had an accident in planes, helicopters and people who climb up mountains. I would do all these things in a blink and I could be the superhero and I would fly for fun and see if anyone is in trouble from a bird’s eye view which would be awesome.  

I think having these powers would be helpful for lots of things, but mostly the ones I have already mentioned. I also think that if some people had this power, they could make it into a sport and I would win it. When I think of this super power I don’t just think of all the superheroes who can fly, I think about all the things it would be useful for and how it could save people’s  lives.

In Writing this week we have been learning about putting juicy words in our writing. Our task was to write effect paragraphs and focus on each paragraph at a time in our time limit. We got into groups of two and marked each others second paragraph based on the rubric. I think our writing lessons last week and this week have been going well. The reason why is because we did our writing lesson in silence with a time limit which was very good for me and probably others to.

I have learnt that when writing effect paragraphs, it is better if you do it in silence. I have learnt a few new words from heather my partner. I have also learn that you can not get very good pictures on goggle.

Video Game Animation (Run Bob Run!)

WALT: Make an animation about a video game with detail.

Talita Video Game from Team 4 Pes on Vimeo.

This term, we have been working on our animation. I have learnt that you do not have to draw well to have a good animation. You have to have a good voice over, but for some people the drawing is what the animation is all about. I think that I did okay. But I will try to do better next term. Comment to tell me what went wrong or if I did okay and could improve with the detail.

Super Mario Explaining!

WALT: Write effective paragraphs.

Super Mario World is a game that is available on your Chromebook, Laptop, Playstation and other digital forms. It is a side scroller game so the screen scrolls past when you move with the keys or controllers. The game Super Mario World is very popular, in fact if I had to ask anyone that is an adult or a child that is year four and higher, they would know right away because it is that popular.

The aim of the game is to dodge the enemies, collect the star, go though all of the levels. There is an option, of jumping on the enemies to make them disappear, you can collect a mushroom that make Super Mario bigger, because he starts in a small version at the beginning of each level. On Chromebooks and Laptops, there are normally ten levels or less that you need to complete. But for the other digital forms like Playstation, Xbox and Nintendo, the levels are harder and longer but still probably have ten levels.

If you are playing on a Laptop, Chromebook, Netbook the controls would be on the keyboard, up, down, right and left. But if you are playing on something like a Xbox or a Playstation, the controls for the game are your controller that comes with what you are playing with. On your controller or key, it is a bit easier if you hover your hand on the P, just in case you need to press it or if you are with the enemies and need to pause. When you make the enemies disappear, you have to jump on them and if you miss then you disappear and start the level again.  

I think that the game Super Mario World is very funny for me because I normally disappearing because of the enemies and keep starting the level over and over again. Sometimes it does get very boring and annoying so I get off the game and do something else for a while. The good news is that I have been playing the game for three days (not the whole day) and now I am at level five and trying to get onto level six, I hope I get to level six!

In Writing this week, we did a writing session and we sat and wrote in silence. I thought that it was very good writing session. We all were on task and every body got their writing done. After each paragraph, we had a look at somebody's and made it a better paragraph. I think that every body in our class has a great piece of writing!

Maths Teacher Lesson-Week 10

WALT:Add and Subtract fractions.

For the last few weeks in Maths Teacher Lesson, we have been learning about adding and subtracting fractions, then we learnt how to simplifier that fraction. For example; 6/20 + 4/20 = 10/20. We can make this simpler by doing this; 10 divided by 2=5, 20 divided by 2=10. Once we have done that we try and do it again 5 divided by 5=1 and 10 divided by 5=2. So if we put 1 and 2 into a fraction, it would make 1/2. The answer to 6/20 + 4/20=1/2 or 5/10 or 10/20.

Using Similes With Ms Tito

WALHT(we are learning how to):use similes to describe things in our writing to capture our audience.

In Reading this week with Ms Tito, we have been learning about similes. I have learnt that you have to use either as or like in a simile. For example; Yvonne is as pretty as me. We compare one thing to the other with a as or like in the middle of it.

Using Different Word Classes

WALHT (we are learning how to): Identify different word classes using pictures.

This week with Ms Tito in writing, we are learning how to Identify different word classes. I have learnt three more word classes and I will be trying to use them a lot. I hope you enjoyed and make sure to look on my blog to read my

Maths Teacher Lesson-Week 9

WALT: Add and subtract fractions.

In the last few weeks in maths, we have been learning how to add and subtract fractions. I have learnt when adding fractions you do not add the denominator, only the numerator. For example; 3/18 + 6/18 + 4/18 = 13/18. I know the answer because you do not add the denominator. All I did was, 3+6+4=13. Once I did that, I put the 18 with it. I thought if I could make it simpler fraction, but I could not because it is an even and odd fraction. So the answer is 13/18.

Problem Solving-Week 10

WALT:Add and Subtract fractions.

In Problem Solving this week, I have learnt that there are lots of ways to find the answer to fraction problem. Like subtraction, division,multiplication and addition. For example:there are 4/13 of apples eaten in the morning. In the afternoon there was 12/13 apples left. How many apples were eaten between the morning and the afternoon? One way we could find the answer is this:4+8=12. Another way we could find the answer is by doing this:12-4=8. SO the answer is 8!

Problem Solving-Week 9

WALT:Add and subtract fractions.

In Problem Solving this week, I learnt that you do not need to have to have writing to solve a question you can use drawing. Me and my partner Rima used squares and writing, so double! I hope I will learn even more next week! I think I will.

Maths Teacher Lesson-Week 8

WALT: Use fractions to solve problems.


For the past few weeks in Maths Teacher Lesson, we have been learning how to solve problems with fractions. I have learnt that you can use division very easily in fractions in problems and then giving it's simplest form. For example: 25/7, 25 divided by seven would equal 3 remand the 4. So it would make it 3 4/7. Is 4/7 the simplest form? Yes it is, so the answer would be 3 and 4/7.

Problem Solving-Week 8

WALT: Use fraction to find the answer.

Task: Make a copy of the presentation. Complete the presentation with a friend. Remember to add in all of 
your working so that others my understand your solution.

In Problem Solving this week, we learnt about how to spilt the the fraction to get the biggest fraction. For example; 2/8 and 3/6. I can tell that 2/6 is the biggest fraction because if you dived the denominator and the numerator by 2 it would make  1/3 and if you have 2/8, you dived the denominator and the numerator by 2 it would make 1/4. So 1/3 is bigger than 1/4 so the answer is 2/6.

Maths Teacher Lesson-Week 7

WALT: Use fractions in different ways.

Task: Work together in our groups with our teacher to make a maths teacher lesson for the week.

In Maths Teacher Lesson, it really helped me with my maths. I have learnt how to make a fraction into it's simplest form. One way to do this is to divide the denominator and the numerator by a common factor. For example, 4/8 divided by four=1/2. Four was the common factor. You could also use 2 as the common factor which would make the fraction 2/4.

Problem Solving-Week 7

WALT: Use fractions in different ways.

Task: Make a copy of the presentation. Complete the presentation with a friend. Remember to add in all of your working so that others my understand your solution.

In this problem solving, I have learnt that the number does not have to be big to be the largest fraction. For example 4/7 and 2/9. One way we can see which one is bigger, is by seeing that 2/9 would be cut into small pieces and 4/7 would be a bigger fraction. So 4/7 is the biggest fraction out of 4/7 and 2/9.
