end of term reflection

Its the end of term one and i'm going to reflect on how my learning has been.

The area of my learning that I have made the most progress on is my maths because I didn't know what anything about the topic so I didn't know the answers.

The area I want to improve on next term is my writing because I'm on the right track but I need to get better because I need to get a higher standed on writing.

For writing we have been writing narratives.
here's a sample

It was the morning before my first day ever at and in high school, I was running around the house to get everything ready for the next day. I was so excited the day flow by, I was running to the space were my very last was. I didn't know where it is, I ran around the house to find it. It was missing?

That was my first few lines. I'm so sorry to leave you on a cliff hanger but I didn't want to give too much away.

my goal was to use punctuation, I did this by using ?,.

making choices

This video shows how making choices is hard and it's ok to get things wrong.

The influences in this video are jenna's friend annabeth and the cool kids stacey and brittany.

In class we have been writing on making choices here is my first paragraph.

you may notice in my writing I have used the word also and for example.

making choices

The law is like rules to a game, if you don't follow them, your not going to have a good time.If you don't follow them you could get a fine,be arested or worst. For example if you got a fine for driving and don't pay it you could get a bigger fine or loss your licent.If you stell you could get a fine or be banned from that shop.

math strategy

For the last few weeks I have been learning a math strategy called use equations to represent a practical situation.I am going to give you 2 example.

There were f frogs in a bank 29 left how many are there

f = frogs 24 left there's a hint so the answer is f-24 because f frog left, left = minus - so the answer is f-24

now try get the answer to this

Jesse had r rubber bands Molly gave Jesse 22 more how many dose Jesse have now

If you guessed r+22 you would be right.

reading strategy

For the last few weeks I have been learning a reading strategy called making inferences.Today I am going to give you 2 examples to teach you how to use this strategy.

This is a tip use clues. Clues stand for

Character motive
Left out information
Understand the characters point of view
Empathise with the author

example 1 : The Fisherman 
Although I can see him still—
The freckled man who goes
To a gray place on a hill
In gray Connemara clothes
At dawn to cast his flies—
It's long since I began
To call up to the eyes
This wise and simple man.   
All day I'd looked in the face   
What I had hoped it would be   
To write for my own race   
And the reality:   
The living men that I hate,   
The dead man that I loved,   
The craven man in his seat,   
The insolent unreproved—
And no knave brought to book   
Who has won a drunken cheer—
The witty man and his joke   
Aimed at the commonest ear,   
The clever man who cries   
The catch cries of the clown,   
The beating down of the wise   
And great Art beaten down.

Maybe a twelve-month since
Suddenly I began,
In scorn of this audience,
Imagining a man,
And his sun-freckled face
And gray Connemara cloth,
Climbing up to a place
Where stone is dark with froth,
And the down turn of his wrist
When the flies drop in the stream—
A man who does not exist,   
A man who is but a dream;   
And cried, “Before I am old   
I shall have written him one   
Poem maybe as cold   
And passionate as the dawn.”
Try use the reading strategy on this poem.
After enjoying the supreme bliss
No need to have a replay swish
This need of once more aesthete
Literally you never get true repeat

Those unique feelings in deep secret
Of silent eyes of faithful evening sedate
No curtain falling will have same rehearse
Of those fading moments like dead verse

Those flashing visions can never be recited
And never be accomplished in succession
Just enjoy imagination and never get deceived
Listen unfathomable notes from innate ocean

Tune your mind for afresh heavenly pleasure
Like the Earth ready for daily bakes and bear

Try using the reading strategy here

From the first poem I have used the strategy to infer 
  1. The author thinks the fisherman is intresting
     2. The author thinks the fisherman is clever
From the second  poem I have used the reading strategy to infer
     1. the author thinks about stuff that people love and like

     2. the author is a interesting person
