My Reading About the Story: Curse of Being Pharaoh

Earlier in the term, the class did a presentation about a story called Curse of Being Pharaoh we had to answer comprehension question. I really enjoyed making the presentation. The questions for this activity were fun to do while you summarized what you read. I would like to do it again on a different story. Our WALT was WALT answer comprehension questions.

Wonderfully Weird Writing Goals

Last week Te Ngahere made our term 3 writing goals. Our WALT for this was we are learning to identify our writing goals. We had to go to the writing toolkit and find what rubric we are.  I need to learn rubric 6 for organization and rubric 5 for sentence structure. Then we had to check last terms goals and see what we had not learned. I am getting really good at using my semicolons and metaphors, next term I think I will have accomplished them.

Magic Marvelous Maths Goals

Last week Te Ngahere made our new term three maths goals. Our WALT was to identify what we have achieved in maths and our next learning steps. First of all we had to fill in our IKAN sheets. My sheet was a stage 6. Then we had to choose 3 goals that we said we needed to learn from the Multiplication and Division section on the strategy side. After the teachers checked the slide we had to put them on, we were allowed to make a google drawing to show our goals as you can see.
