In Reading we had to define words that are related to the Suffrage movement. We also needed to write what we know about the suffrage movement, and other questions. CJ, Eric, Oh Hsen, Shannon and I have all worked together to complete this sketchnote. We talked about what it was and decided what we wanted to put for our answers.
Today Eric, OhHsen, C.J, Shannon and I created a google slide DLO about Kate Sheppard. We placed our questions onto a slide and wrote the answers on another slide. We all had a conversation about our learning and read facts together to put onto our DLO. What was challenging about this activity was to find the right information to put it onto our own words.
Today lS2 have started learning our dance for our production at the end of the term. We were rewinding our learning from yesterday by watching our video. Ms Kirkpatrick put the song onto the TV screen so we could practice our dance and get it at the right beat. At the end we all shared our dance. I really enjoyed seeing group B's group, because the actions they were doing were really fast and it would look difficult if I was in their group.
Today Zane and I have created an Idiom writing challenge. We started by researching idiom images so we could put them onto the DLO. When I was searching through images I came across to one that said hit the road. I knew that it was the one I was going to use for my DLO. Zane and I had a discussion to see if we were going to use it or something else. I learnt quite a lot of things about idiom. The hardest part about this writing challenge was trying to find an image because there were heaps of interesting ones I wanted to use. And the easiest part was writing down what it meant because I hear these words in some movies that I watch on Netflix.

Today I have created a writing challenge DLO about hyperbole. I had to create a paragraph about my unfortunate walk home. But I ended up doing a run back home. What was challenging is that I had to think of a sentence that has hyperbole into it. But now I have learnt new thing about what hyperbole is.

Today at tech the year eights and I have just started painting our design, some of us still needed time because our tech teacher Mrs Ferguson was busy trying to cut out our clock designs by using the laser cutter. Before we started we had to draw over with a pencil the design that we want to paint onto, but we had to take our time or we could mess it up and have to start all over again. The hardest part about my design was drawing New Zealand (aotearoa). And painting all over it was even difficult. I had a really great time painting the ocean and mixing the colours. But the best thing about this is helping each other out when they are stuck on something.
