Say it Tika


Since this week is Maori language week, we tried to keep the Maori language alive by improving google maps pronunciation of the Maori streets and places in our local area. I pinned three of the streets and places that could be improved on such as Ti Rakau Drive. People get confused how to pronounce it. I hope to learn more Maori words so I can use it at school and home.

Stained Glass

Since we have the new rotation for tech we have stained glass as our rotation. This week we were planning our designs and being cautious of what would work and what wouldn't.  We also coloured in the parts we wanted to. I had the idea of a boat and my initial "M". We also got to experience cutting glass with special boards. We used different tools to help us succeed in this.

Tamaki Overdrive


Using the Tamaki overdrive we selected a book to read from a wide variety of non-fiction, fiction, mystery and suspense and more.  I picked a book that was in the fiction section it is called "undiscovered country" and is written by Jennifer Gold. I think Tamaki overdrive is really good because it has some books that have audio and is completely the same as the library but online.

Two Word Sentences


In writing we had a look at two word sentences, two word sentences are simple sentences. Using the simple sentence we added in FANBOYS which makes it a complex sentence which joins two simple sentences or ideas together with a connective. Using the complex sentence we used AAWWUIBBIS to make it a compound sentence.
