Scale Drawings

The whole of last week was maths week, our fun activity was scale drawing. I thought that last year wasn't as good as this years scale drawing, this was because I rushed my drawing. I have learned from the mistakes I have made and to always take my time when drawing in each box. First our class searched for images to draw. Then we were given a piece of paper that had a butterfly or a simple drawn lion to practice drawing. After practicing I got a bigger piece of paper to enlarge the drawing, but before we could enlarge the image we framed the actual image and drew 1 a  centimeter grid. We used a scale factor (which is multiplication or division), we added 1 more to get 2 centimeters so we can enlarge the image by making the grid bigger. We then made a google drawing and put in our names, ratio and title (Scale Drawing). We glued it onto a big piece of colored paper.

Going To The Beach Pechaflikr


Today my writing group have learnt about pechaflikr, to me doing pechaflikr was quite hard, I paired up with Hajera, we started of with a practice. After that Hajera and I have created a pechaflikr DLO. We both collaborated by, sharing what we thought, and trying our best to use unique words to make each and every image hold hands/link together to make the story flow. Hajera and I have used adjectives, adverbs and verbs, to make our made up story paint a clear picture in the readers mind, my main goal was to show not tell, and not just show, I meant show!. As we were making this slide/presentation I always thought to myself, how hard is it going to be for the reader? now I think that it'll surely be harder than the first time I did it!

By working collaboratively with Hajera, I have learnt many things like, how to link paragraphs with other paragraphs and to share new ideas that come to mind.

What is Pechaflikr?
Pechaflikr is when you try your best to come up with quick stories to link each image to let the story flow.

CARE Awards - Angelica Hale

Today, as part of my goal setting I have creatively made a DLO (digital learning object) talking about the difficulties and positive attitudes my role model has, the person I decided to talk about was Angelica Hale, Why? because she has been respectful, confident, has shown resilience etc. She is a good role model to me, this is because my passion is singing and that she has qualities a good role model has.

Tuhi Atu Tuhi Mai

Today we did some quad blogging with Karoro School. Here I learnt many things about Refugees and Battles. I posted to positive and helpful comments on Sam's blog. I gave  him some feedback and feed forward on how to make his story make sense to other readers that post and read on his blog. Sam has done a superb job in writing his refugees poem/story. This story talks about how a young boy is against the refugees and if you read it backwards you sure will think that he is for the refugees! I have enjoyed blogging with Sam and I am sure I will be visiting many of his class mates blogs when we blog with them some other time.
