Goals

Walt achieve goals we set for ourselves

In this photo you can see my three goals I set for myself these goals are to be at the year 8 / 8+ standard, to get better at my maths and to get work finished on time. I think I am doing well with these goals because I am getting most of my work done on time , I'm getting better at maths and most of my subjects are at the year 8 standard. I think my next step is to get more of my work done on time because this is the goal I am not so good at doing

reading

Walt I can make links across texts by recognising connectives or adverbial clauses

I was learning this because i got this wrong in my asTTle reading test.

This is how you do the strategy. Firstly you need to know what a connective is, a connective is a linking word, the easy word we all use to connect a sentence is. And. there are heaps more e.g then, next, after, when. there are still more but if i list them it would take up the whole blog post. Next you need to know about adverbial clauses. adverbial clauses are harder to understand than connectives. so here is some information about Adverbial clauses.Firstly they don't make sense on their own. Secondly they tell as, how, where, when, how long or why.

Koru games

Over the last three days I have been participating in the koru games, which is a sport tournament that is hold over three days. we had four options of sports, netball , basketball , touch and football. I picked touch. I really enjoyed the second day because we had more games, also we got lollies from Xanthe's mum. Thinking back to the beginning of the year, I really improved on communicating with my team. Something I will remember is almost wining our last game against South new brightion, The school I was going to go to but instead i went to burwood. The school I went to before oaklands

Maths - use multiplicative strategies

Walt use multiplicative strategies 
I have been learning this because I got this wrong but now I can do this strategy 
I think I'm at extended abstract because I can do this strategy and teach someone how to do this.
Here is a question
So how do you solve this , easy. So firstly divide 11 by 53 the answer is 4 r 9 now divide 11 by 92 the answer is 8 so the answer is 48 r 4 
My next step is to take a geometry test.

Reading

I can identify and evaluate the way writers’ use language and ideas to suit their purpose
I can interpret metaphor, analogy, and connotative language.

Here is a activity that I did on a song called roar.

I think I am at relational because I can figure out if the part was missing then what would happen but I have trouble with figuring out what the part function is.
