In my class we have a new subject for this year which is called DARE it is all about keeping ourselves self also finding out more about ourselves. This task was fun because we had to get into a group of four and log into our Tagul account this is a website that creates a word cloud and it is very awesome to use. In my group of four we had to type the ABC on a Tagul and type words to answer the question why it's great to be me. For example for the letter A we put down the word active because we are young a very active. Why is it great to be me ? it's great to be me because I am a True friend I am hard working when I'm with my friends I am Brave, I am really Active I like play Netball to get Active and Run around the playground.

Today we had writing. For this task we had to complete the contraction. This was a really easy task to complete because all we had to do was write the contract word. My favourite word that I contracted was it. An example of an contraction is I will. The contraction to this word is I'll. My layout has a lot of room but that is OK. Here are some other contractions that you might like.

Yesterday I started a Two DLO about what I want to do in the future. When I grow up I might choose to be a dancer. Why? Because when I was about 5 years old I loved Art. In this half detailed DLO I have put in the opportunity you will have getting a job as a Tattooist and more. This was really easy to complete but it was hard as well. One tip I would have to tell you is make sure you turn up with the right gear at all times. But Art is not my favourite. Yeah. It is actually Netball. I am not a very good artist and have no idea on what to do but I enjoy it a lot. This is my so called future. Hopefully it all goes well.

Shakaia and I made an online sketch note using google drawing, based on our learning about the Suffrage Movement. We made a sketch note to make connections with our learning and to show what we have learned. Learning conversations helped us learn from our partner. It was definitely an important skill for this activity.

Today, LS2 has been doing rewindable learning with our dance. We were practicing our dances for our school production. We got split into three groups. My group is doing the song I see red and the other two groups are doing Stayin' Alive and Footloose. Yesterday, Zoe (The dance teacher) taught us the moves to our songs and because Mrs Anderson took a video of us, we watched ourselves doing the dance so if we made mistakes (Which we definitely did) we could work on it the next time we practice dancing.
On Monday I started an illustration about idiom. Idiom is a group of words known by how much its has been used. I have put in different examples about idiom. An example of idiom is "Fish out of water". Meaning you are somewhere where you don't belong. This has been one of my favourite illustrations to do so far. I have enjoyed creating my own illustration using my own words. This was not hard to do but it was not easy trying to find the right idioms.
Yesterday afternoon Shakaia and I started this DLO about Kate Sheppard the leader of the suffrage movement. In our DLO you will find out different information about this powerful women. We have made this to the best of or ability. With the help of our teacher we got this done. We didn't know anything about this lady until we had a group conversation about who she is and what she did. Coming into this group as a newbie I think I have learnt a lot about this one person who changed the world with just her voice. The suffrage movement was a group of women that wanted the right to vote in the elections.

Today for tech, the graphics group were up to painting their MDF designs. We got our clocks laser cut, then we started to draw our designs on to our MDF pieces. After we completed drawing our designs, we started painting our MDF and used the primary colours to mix and made different colours. We had to paint layers of the same colour because the MDF was to dark. It was also best to use opposite colors so each colour would look bright.

Since woman's rights was a big issue in the olden days our reading topic this term related . We watched ayoutube video about the suffragette movement and wrote a 25 word summary on "what was the suffragette movement". . I found this quite hard because it isn't a skill that I have mastered (summary) but talking to my group helped me make my connection.
