Google Engine Maps - Today Rm 5 started teaching other students how to create their own custom made map.
We still need to teach how to create layers on the map to show distance and time between our activities. We also want to insert videos and embed our maps onto our blog. This is a great tool for planning our EOTC trip.

My nervousness began to shrink. It was as if I was getting a new skin. I shrugged away my shyness.
getting ready to preform
We were standing in line like soldiers, waiting for power to come on us."Hopi, Kiraro!" Mana called like a chief above us. We were all in position, following his commands like trained warriors.
We waited for the curtains to open again... 3, 2, 1 The curtains began to open! Right there in front of us was a massive, cheering crowd. It was like we were presenting on X Factor.
I wanted to sink into my own world and disappear
There I stood, as timid as a mouse.
Proud of myself
“Hopi! Kiraro! Hopi!” I could see tiny little tears coming out the side of my whanaus eyes
I was so nervous, eels twisting and turning inside my stomachWalking onto the stage it felt like my tummy was a tuna net that eels were trying to slip out of. I was feeling nervous.
The excitement grew inside me like a dog knowing it is about to get a feed.
All eyes were on me, if I made a mistake it would haunt me

Last week Room 5 sat an AsTTle persuasive writing assessment. I am particularly proud of Anthony's and Gerry's piece.

In summary I think cigarettes should not be sold in N.Z because they are addictive, they have gross stuff in it that cause the body harm and they cost heaps. So are you with me, no smokes?

For the children who are focused and complete their tasks in time, they get to further develop their blogging and videoing skills each Friday during the mid block. This week some children will be learning more about Youtube Editor and the different types of shots they can use when creating a film.
So far the tamariki who have finished tasks in Te Reo Maori are Shilaine, Kohuru and Anthony. The rest of the class has a few small things to do before they post their learning onto their blogs.
In reading Hanita and Shilaine have stood out this week as students who are focused on learning strategies to work out word meaning. Hanita and Gabrielle T are the most successful students in their group in reading comprehension this week.
As for writing, the class has focused on learning to identify the purpose and structure of persuasive writing. Anthony, Gerry, Gabrielle T and Letisha have stood out as being super successful in this learning area. Next week students are learning about emotive language. I look forward to seeing students persuasive writing posted on their blogs next Friday. They have planned their opinion, main reasons and supporting details in small groups. The topics they have chosen to write about are: Making a new rule that motorbikes and quads are allowed at school, only having maths taught all day long, Tautoro School being a bring your own device school, and bringing back Mrs. Paraha's Honeys and Treasures Club. I wonder if they will be able to change your mind.
In Physical Education the students who I see continually pushing and challenging themselves to do their best every cross country training are: Arama, Hohepa, Gerry, Letisha, Harmony, Alice, and Piringi.

Once he was in the cave he saw a gigantic batack it looked like a scaly fish with big muscles and wings(snake and bat put together). He jumped off his hoiho and “smack, boom, crack and whack” . By the time Matariki was finished the monster looked like a raggedy snack with flies around him. The brother and sister lived happily ever after.They didn’t tell there mum cause they would get a big growling.

This is the narrative Harmony, Anthony and Gerry have worked on this term. It has been entered into the Young Authors Challenge
Then when the tidal wave flowed back out to sea, the two taniwha opened back up and went to where they were before. Life turned back to normal again, until the next natural disaster...

Youth Day By TeKaapua Cooper
After that it was everyone else turn then it was over. All of room 5 struggled to get the huge police clothes on and everyone laughed and laughed for hours. It was exhausting.
It was an extraordinary day because we showed tumaia kaha and manaakitanga. We showed this because we worked as a team. I think it was cool because I got to spend time doing fun things for youth day.
