I was able to find nouns and proper nouns in the story.  I found it hard to find the adverbs and adjectives.

Kindness Poem

Walt : use new words that suit my Kindness Poem

I was able to write my kindness poem about Wonder I really loved to do this activity because I like learning new words.

Auggie's Classroom

Walt: identify and use the perimeter rule to calculate the size of Ague's classroom.

I really loved to do the Wonder activity about Auggie's classroom where we had to make own classroom and measure it.  I solved the perimeter by first adding the 10's and then the 5's.

Next time I could try to use harder numbers to add.

Labour Day

Walt : understand passing on messages is important so we understand why we celebrate.

In my group we found out facts about Labour Day.   I had no idea why we celebrated Labour Day and now I know why.

I think it is important to pass on messages about Labour Day because if I don't pass on the information about Labour Day then it might not happen any more.    I could pass the Labour Day message onto my mum and dad.

Writing Evidence

Walt : use persuasive words in my speeches.

I was able to use words like good, because and I believe.

Next time I am going to use more.   I could use the sheets in the back of my learning journey.

A to Z of Celebrations

Here is our A to Z.  I found this activity really fun to do because it was fun looking for the pictures.

Around the World Celebrations

This slideshow is about  birthdays around the world.  The country I did was England.  I learnt that England has a birthday song like New Zealand.

Queen's Secret


I enjoyed this story.  I found the questions easy to answer.   I think the maid should have kept the Queen's secret to herself because the secret got shared with lots of others and the message got exaggerated.

I was working on fractions. This slide shows circles with 3/8 and 4/8.
Underneath  I have ordered fractions  from  smallest to biggest.

This side shows a  circle  with 7/8. It also shows the numerator and denominator in a fraction.

Spelling - 45 Letter Sounds


Walt : use different spelling patterns and strategies to increase my word knowledge.

There are 45 letters sounds in the English language.  Sometimes these sounds are made by one letter and sometimes they are a made by a group of letters together.  Learning these letter sounds will help me spell unknown tricky words and increase my word knowledge.

Reading - New Vocabulary

Walt : actively seek to extend my knowledge of new vocabulary.

During the year I will be trying my hardest to learn new words.    When I come across a new word in my reading I will record it in my word clarification spreadsheet.  I will find the meaning of the word and then find other words that mean the same eg. synonyms.

I will try and use my new words that I learn in my writing.
