My Personal Writing Reflection

Today when I analysed how I did in my last independent recount sample and I saw how I was going in my work.  My weakest area is my vocabulary because I have not been using it much in my Writing . I know I am really good at my spelling and I have a lot of ideas because I practise so much at home and at school.

My Christmas Poem

My Poem:
White beard.
Dark red coat.
Big pointy red hat.
Opening up our presents.
Spending time with your family.
Having lunch with your lovely family.
The smell of yummy delightful food.
Looking up the chimney for Santa!  
Listening to some Christmas carols.
Waiting for Santa to bring your presents.

My Reflection:
I am learning to do a tagul.  The most difficult part was finding different words to put in my shape.  The most simple part was trying to find the shape.  Next time if we get time to do another tagul I would like to do another one, because doing tagul's are really fun to do and I really enjoy doing them.

Learning to use a Maths Think Board

My Reflection: I have been learning how to use a Maths Think Board to show my mathematical knowledge and understanding.  I drew a problem in a simple way to show how to use Base 10 equipment I wrote the problems with words, and wrote my number sentence/ equation and solved the problem.  I liked solving the problem and working it out.  I think next time I would like to do a problem like this one again because it was really fun to do.

My Te Tuhi Dream House

My Reflection: I am learning to put together a creative Dream House that I made at  Te Tuhi.  I chose to make a Dream House like this one because it looks a bit like a mask and I really like I think it looks awesome.  I would like to do another one of these again because it was really fun and I really enjoyed it.

My Reader's Theatre Play

My Reflection: I have been learning to read a Reader's Theatre group play.  The name of my play is On Track.  When we read we have to have a clear voice, not talk fast,when someone is not paying attention and doing their own thing don't tell them to go they need to figure out them self.  If we do another play again I think I would want to do a funny story-play.

My Basic Facts Progress

My Reflection:
I am learning to know my basic facts automatically.  My next step is in my basic facts test I should know them really fast so that I shouldn't get any wrong.  Next time if I do one of these again I should get better and get a lot faster.  I could learn my basic facts at home and in the morning at school so that I would be so much better.

Learning more about fractions

More fraction work on e-Ako

My Reflection: I went on e-ako to do some more fraction work. This task was a little bit tricky  -I had to figure out which the answers carefully but the easy thing was looking at the picture to get some clues to answer the fraction questions.
I got 30 out of 30 right!!!

My maths problem

Reflection:  It was easy to write how I solved this problem because I know to make the given number.  It was tricky to write a reflection at the end because we had to write lots of stuff that we did in the Ti Kouka maths problem. Writing on a white board helped me solve this problem - it helped me when I got a bit stuck on something a bit hard but the rest of it was all right.  At the end I felt really excited when I had done because it was a long thing I had to do.    

Learning to write a reader's response

My Reflection:
I had never done a reader's response before and I really enjoyed learning how to write one.  I like making a connection to my own life.  Next time I would like to try a different NZ poem.
