Explanation - How Children Learn at School

How children learn at school
What did you learn when you were a child? Did you learn by talking? Many kids learn by asking friends questions to learn more. A lot of people when they were a child liked to tell their ideas to express themselves by doing what they love.

Kids also follow people they look up to. Were you one of them? Children are good observers they like what other people  like to do. They learn more in partners because they are learning what they might not know. There are people in our community who help kids learn as well. They really look up to their community.

Kids love to play and have fun with friends. They love to explore by trying new things. When kids explore they love to climb and swing and adventure to see how high they can get. Exploring can really help a child to learn more.

Kids disagree to agree to have an opinion. People always have decisions on what to pick for what they might want to do in the future. Children can always be picky with what they want. They will always be with someone and do what they do but they just want someone to be their role model.

We learnt a lot this makes us to really be smart for college and university. Kids will always look up to someone or follow who they would want to be. Going to school is a really big deal and having an educational life as well.

Today I went into to partners with Zane to plan and write an explanation. We have done steps 1 to 10 to finish this explanation we worked together to finish this. It took time but we manage to get this done. Other groups checked our work which made our explanation better.

Fraction Strategy - Screencastify


Today I have made a screencastify to show my thinking for one of my DLO's for maths this was really fun to do. To do this I first planed with this document. I add my DLO then typed my script and also added what I was going to do with my cursor to make my screencastify easy to understand. After doing this I downloaded the screencastify app. I opened my DLO by clicking on the link that I had on my planning sheet. I opened all of the tabs that I needed to use I clicked on the app then recorded. The video will automatically save onto a folder in your drive called Screencastify. I changed my video so anyone with the link can access. I opened a window and embed my video. This is how I created my screencastify. I would want to say a huge thank you to Mrs Grant for showing us how to make a perfect screencastify.

First Mr Malu points at someone and says bip bop bounce and who ever he is pointing to that person has to say bang just before he says bounce. It gets harder because Miss Latoia comes and they both say bip bop bounce but not to the same person. Then we had a game of hand soccer this game is really simple it's just like soccer but we use our hands to hit the ball into our goal. We all had to use my teams support to overcome the challenge.

Two Day Wonder

Two Day Wonder

There is a clever contrast between the way the poet describes yesterday and today. List all the words that give you a feeling of being sick, sad, depressed or bored.
Dragged, silent, still, dragged, sulked, yawned and garbled.
Now list all the words that describe feeling well, happy, bright and active from the second verse.
Shine, dance, better, hurry, flying, clatter, swish and gallops .
The lines from each verse match up also. List five of the opposite images. This first one is done for you.
The street stretched silent - Cars swish, skateboards clatter.
Washing dropped on the line - Shirts, sheets, socks stream in the breeze.
Clouds dragged low and slow - Clouds hurry high and flying.

The dog sulked in his bucket - The do gallops around the house.

My bike lay on the drive - My bike waits by the garage.
The world yawned and grumbled - The world shines and dances.
This is called juxtaposition. Look this word up in the dictionary and copy the definition here.

The fact of two things being seen or placed close together with contrasting effect.

For reading my group had to each read a poem called "Two day wonder" after reading this poem I answered questions that my teacher Ms Kirkpatrick put on a document. I now know a new word called juxtaposition this word means when something is compered with something else that is the opposite.
