Tech at Tamaki College

Today at tech was amazing. Instead of painting our MDF designs, we were working on using compass. We started of by making multiple circles and then added some triangles into them and made stars. We failed on the first few tries but then we got the hang of it. We made flowers and then we tried to make cubes using the circle method.

Choosing Keywords

I have created a DLO about choosing keywords. I have came up with ideas to get a good search result. When choosing your keywords, its best to use a full name or be more specific. I have provided steps that will help you with your searches. 

Kate Sheppard - Sketchnote DLO

In reading this week, we had to define words that connect with the suffrage movement. We also had to answer what we know about the suffrage movement. Javeylor and I have worked together to complete this DLO. We talked about the questions and also added an image each.

Galloping Greyhounds

Our focus in maths was " Galloping Greyhounds ". Mia and I have worked together to complete this maths problem. We used lots of fractions in the payment the greyhounds have received. We solved many questions.

Kate Sheppard

In reading we have been focusing on women's right to vote back in 1892. Javeylor and I have made this DLO about Kate Sheppard and what she did to change the men's choice in letting women vote. We have added important information about what Kate Sheppard did. We have also added her personal qualities. 

Rewindable Learning

The learning we were doing today was rewindable learning. Rewindable learning is filming yourself doing something or practicing. You then go back to it and watching it to learn from the mistakes you did. Rewindable learning is great way to improve of what you are doing. We were practicing for our school production. Our dance teacher, Zoe taught us the moves to our dance. We filmed our practice and watched ourselves so we could learn from the mistakes.

Idiom Illustration

Our focus in writing today were idioms. Idiom is a group of words that have the same meaning but one is exaggerated. I have made a DLO with an example of idiom and images to back up the sentence. I have learnt that idiom is another way of saying something but using exaggeration.
