Parris Goebel Reading Response 3

For Literacy I am learning about Parris Goebel and we get to do a dance because she is a New Zealand hip hop dancer. For our reading response we had to do a dance. I did the dance to the Cha Cha Slide have a look. Hope you enjoy.
Just CLICK HERE to have a look. I am very proud of my art.


For nearly a year now all the school have been doing  safe cycling. We have it on until the 4th of December.
We learn to do heaps of things on the bike but we don't learn to skid because it is dangerous and the track that got made for us could get wrecked. The little people with the trailer wheels could get stuck.
Here are some people from Room 15 practicing.
Have a look

You guys look great on those cool bikes.

Finding the range

For maths I did finding the range for some maths and some of the questions were really tricky for me. But I got there.
This is what my maths looks like.
Finding the Range - Using an Effective Subtraction Strategy

Range = Highest data - lowest data

Our three go to strategies:
  • PV: 73 - 27 = 73 - 20 = 53 / 53 - 7 = 46
  • EA: (73 + 3)  (27 + 3) = 76 - 30 = 46
  • Reversing: 27 + __ = 73 / 27 + 3 = 30 / 30 + 43 = 73 / 43 + 3 = 46

Work out the range for these sets of numbers. You must use each go to strategy at least once.

Highest Data
Lowest Data
Strategy / Working Out
(132+2)-(98+2)=  134-100=34  EA
(43+3)-(27+3)=    46-30=16 EA
86-10=76           76-7=69  PV
365=300+65       65-49=      65-40=25  25-9=16   16+300=316 PV
(1084 + 4)-(196 +4)=1088-200=  (1000-200) +88= 800+88=888  EA

You should like Star Wars.

Hi guys welcome back to my blog. This post is going to be a learning post. This is my writing/literacy from this week.
Purpose: to PERSUADE
I am learning how to improve my sentence formation
Success Criteria:
  • Start most of my sentences with different words
  • Include simple and compound sentences*
  • Include some complex sentences**
  • State your point of view, then include three big reasons to support it.
Include emotional and persuasive language

Why everyone should like Star Wars.
I think that everyone should like Star Wars.

How come you don’t believe me? I think Star Wars is soo cool, and I think that you should like it too, because it makes you look up to yourself because in Star Wars there is a lot of fighting going on. It makes you look up to yourself by the fighting and if someone comes up to you and bullies you can do some of the moves that is in  the movies. The moves are magical because every hit would hurt and the moves are also powerful.

Secondly in the movies 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 it is very interesting and it is relaxable it is so relexable you can even have popcorn. It relates to the movies because it has the same characters but in the star wars 7 movie they have gone very old.

My third and final reason is because you can also make jokes about it and there is Star Wars days plus on the star wars day you can say “ May the 4th be with you” or you can say “ May the force be with you.”

Now hopefully you like Star Wars now!

It was about a bit tricky even though love star wars. It is my argument writing. My teacher for this was Mr M.

This is a blog post about my workshop prove it. I am doing this because I went to it every time that is was on. I knew that leaning complex sentences is important for my writing level.

Workshop Prove It
Big idea is a sentence by itself.
Small idea can not be a sentence by itself.

I learnt to do complex sentence.

Here is an example:

Before I went to the hospital, I got wrapped up like a marshmallow.

My Learning licence .

Hi guys it is me Mya and today I am sharing because I think it is cool. It was based on licence and my group was doing I give up when learning is tough. Who was in my group, Nikita, Me and Jordan R.  If you would like to have a look at my video that the team did have a look below.

I hope you enjoyed it see you next time.

Mystery object

Hi guys welcome back to my blog today I am sharing my writing I did with my teacher Mrs Carr. It was called Mystery object description.

Hot pack

WALT: create content with clear and interesting details

Success Criteria:

  • Quick plan to prepare for the writing task (brainstorm with words or ideas)
  • Interesting beginning and ending
  • Using the senses (see, touch, taste, hear, smell)
  • Accurate Description of the object
  • Descriptive words

What am I?
The colour in this object is bluey whitish and has a clear plastic coat around it. It can make your sore muscles heal. If you put it by your ear you can hear something's going in the sift. It can smell like a plastic doll. It is like a cold pack but hot. It feels lumpy and like dried up salt also, you feel something smooth at the same time. I can see the word that says Kiwi Warmer and has a pitcher of a kiwi and lots of instructions.

If you have this object in your home you can use it to help your aching back or any muscle injury ,it will help it feel better.  You could have it in your first aid kit. The object that I am talking about is a hot pack.

Ethan's achievement.

The class has a boy named Ethan and he had a challenge to get 30 stickers in 2 days Thursday and some of Friday. Well guess what he managed to do that and so that means we get to do free time how exciting.
Here is what it looks like.

For free time some people played netball, some people played on the playground and some people played Bullrush.
