Smart Learners.

Today I have been smashing through my work. Last week I think I didn't get to post another comment. But if I did...Yay. Here is my third comment throughout the week. This week too. This week I thought to comment on Kohl-lees blog. I only commented on Kohl-lees blog because, I like how she works through here work and she is a great smart learner. Here it is.


Today we finally finished our Baa-Mite video. This is a radio play. I really did enjoy doing this today. The hardest part for me was when we had to keep restarting the video and trying to remember my lines. I really do think we done a great job. Enjoy.

We have done this before but with the population not with our blog archives. I really did enjoy today's set task with Whaea Tania. Follow the steps and you will get everything correct. I hope you enjoy.

Thanks to Canva.

In the past few weeks we have been making posters and slideshows on plastic. I made a presentation on a site named Canva.

Thank you Whaea Tania and Whaea Cassandra.

Today we had Whaea Tania and Whaea Cassandra come into our class today. We had a lot of fun enjoying how to make new charts. I learnt how to make my chart 3D and change the colors for the background and for the font.  We had to find the population of the cities that are in this photo down below. Mexico City had the highest population of people over there. The easiest thing for me that I done today was finding all of the populations for all of the countries. It was also easy changing my font for the text. Here is what my total of what my statistics looked like when I was finished.

Toku Pepeha

My Papa's Tangi😑

W.A.L.T: Write an amazing hook that will capture my audience's interest. 

Oh my gosh, what would you do if you had to deal with something like this. On one sad Saturday my family and I went to my papa’s tangi. There I am standing still like a stunned mullet, I was really shocked that this has happened. I went to see my papa, “Wow” he looks so great. My papa passed away from cancer, so to all of you out there… be careful. I look over to see my Nan, she was balling with tears and her heart was broken. “Kia Ora moko” she whispered “Hi Nan”, my eyes were shattering looking at my Nan. You be strong Nan. “Have a great day” I whispered.

Yay Cross Country Today!

“Bang” the blocks sounded like gunshots telling me to go. “Come on guys you can do it” is all I heard. My heart was pumping like an electric train. “Ow” I moaned, “my legs are aching”. When I was running up the hill my legs were shattering like wind chimes, I couldn’t breath. I was thinking to myself “Why is my teacher doing this to me?”, how is this actually possible?. I ended up running up the hill, the sweat was running down my face like water. Do we have to run?.

Class Survey

Today our whole class used Google Forms to create a survey as part of our statistics unit.
Together we asked some question and sent the link to our class. I really did enjoy making this survey today. I learn't how to add photos into my survey and learn't how to add check boxes in. The easiest thing for me was making the survey. I have made a survey before but, forgot how to use it.

Here is some photos of my survey.

You can clearly see that mostly no one takes their Chromebook home.

You can also see that nearly half of our class said yes they do have a Chromebook.

Looking at flowers seeming how pretty they are. Having a fun time enjoying yourself, looking at them.
Hold on, I’m supposed to be talking about Kaikohe. Now let’s get started.

On a hot sunny cold day, my family and I went to Kaikohe to do cool pranks.
“Hey you dropped something!” I roared like a lion. Driving down the road thinking I’m cool, but really, I was just pretending.
Going around doing pranks, “I hope I see no one from school” I quivered. My heart was pounding like a train,
watching out for people I know, that come to our school.

After that my family and I went to McDonalds.
I had a Quarter Pounder, Fries and an Ice drink. My eyes were as big as tennis balls, once I saw McDonalds.
My jaw dropped like it broke. I was so happy when we got to McDonalds.
“Ohhhh man this burger is so nice” I hinted to my aunty Ani. The food was getting squashed up in my mouth.
It was really nice.

Later on that day my family and I traveled home. Waiting to maKe some delicious cakes.
“Cakes, cakes, cakes” I softly quivered to my sister Sylvah. Licking the bowl for an extra taste.
“Mmmmmmm” this is so delicious man”. My stomach was so sore, I needed to spu.
My stomach aching my head spinning really fast, “owww” I moaned to my sister Sylvah “can you help me please”.?

In conclusion that day was fun and I really had a cool time with my family.
I also had a few of fall overs when we were at the beach too.
But too wrap it all up, I had the best time ever, until a seagull ate my chips!!

Animation Yeah!

W.A.L.H.T Create a short clip using Stop Motion Animation.

SC: I will
Make short movements for each shot.i

What I learn't was making sure that my hair and my hands weren't in the film when  I took the shots.
What worked really well in our movie was when we had to sculpt our humans and when we had to make our crops as a road after that. I found everything difficult because I had to do most of the work when we were taking our shots, I also found most things difficult when we had to sculpt our snowmen for our first scene we done.

Who likes speeches? Because I do and you should to.

This morning our class stood up to present our speeches to the class. We all had 2-3 minutes to talk about our speech. My speech was about having swimming pools in Kaikohe. Do you think if we were to have swimming pools in Kaikohe it would make everything more better? Well let's do something about it.

I made sure that:

I don't sound like a robot
Hand gestures
Rhetorical question
Emotive language
A clear voice
Time words

The most challenging part for me was when we had to stand up in the front of the classroom and the students. I think that I done a bit alright. I just need to work on making sure that I use more expression and more facial expression. But overall I think I done great.

This is my Speech video. You need to click on the YouTube button to watch.

It was really easy
I helped others by making sure they knew how to do all the stages.
I needed help with nothing

It was fast for me to finish to finish the 12 stages.  When I finished the 12 stages I got a certificate. I took screenshots as I worked my way through the stages.  When you look at the screenshots you can see how I used blocks to create the code which made me clock my level.
