Current Events and Activites 2

Walt: Monitor ourselves to complete all our work 


Task Description: Today for literacy we are working on our second current events activities. Current Events and Activities is a task that helps us keep up to date with the things that are going on around the world. In Current Events and Activities we go on sites like the New Zealand Herald or Kiwi Kids news. This article I found was from the New Zealand Herald. The article I chose was about a Hawaiian man who got hot lava splatted onto his shin down. This event was caused by an volcanic eruption that occurred 3 weeks ago in Hawaii. This is the first known incident from the volcanic eruption. Check our the presentation for more information to the story.

The Conservationist's Inquiry Research EXT




Task Description: This is just work we had to finish from last term in extension but we didn't have time. Our task from last term was to creating a movie talking about pollution which is a huge impact on the world. We were each divided into a group and started creating our movie's. But before we created our movies we had to work our Inquiry Research. Inquiry Research is basically a little introduction into the group and creating statements to follow up our introduction. My group was called the Conservationist's and we are looking from the perspective of our wildlife animals.

#MyGoals

Walt: Write measurable goals to help us achieve more
Task Description: For this task Room 1 Literacy were instructed to write down our Goals towards our work. Before we did that we talked about the different stages that there are when it comes to learning. Hot Camp - Workers who try hard every day and get there work done.
Warm Camp - Kids who try very hard sometimes but then become slack.
Cold Camp - Kids who don't really listen and are late on there work.
Those were the three stages we talked about. We then had to think about which camp that we belong to right now (I was in the warm camp) and take that information and put it into our goals, and this is what I have made.
