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.

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.

Click on the book cover below to read our story of our friendly Cockroach.
I have been learning to write a narrative about a Musical Cockroach. It can be tricky to put the punctuation in the correct places. I am so proud of my contribution to writing this amazing story about our courageous little friend Allegro. I am writing another adventure of Allegro on BookCreator with Shelby. Watch out for this new e-Book when I post it.

I got this reading award because when we were doing a play called Maui and the sun I was picked to be Narrator by my teacher. When we had a trip we went to Te Tuhi we read Maui and the sun and I was reading as Narrator it was so much fun.

I am learning to solve mathematic fraction work like this piece that I did. I enjoyed solving this problem because it's really good for my learning. I would like to play e-ako more so I can get higher and better with my learning.
I am learning to draw my foot then count all the squares in my footprint. When I first started to do it I really enjoyed doing it. I liked drawing it I had lots of squares in my footprint. I am finishing it I am up around 200 and something. When I am finished I am probable going to up 300 and something. We used colours to colour in the squares. I have a high number so far.

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 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 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.

In my gymnastics group for our finishing move we all were in the splits I was in the side splits and Shelby and Gemma were in the front splits. Next time if we do gymnastics again I think we would do a different finishing move.

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.

My Reflection: I got this maths trophy because I followed instructions I also was doing the right things. Doing them the correct way I also got the trophy because I was doing some interesting things in my maths book. Maybe I was keeping my maths book nice and neat. I like doing my maths mabe next time I would like to do a bit more of maths every day because it is a lot of fun.

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.
