The best day ever!

On Sunday the 24 of November 2013 it was the best day ever because me,my sister, mum and dad set out the paddling pool for me and Anya, my sister. Then we put some chairs and some benches out.
Next we got some towls out and put on our togs.  When we got in it was freezing. I had to jump in. Then it started to get warm and I had to go and get some ice and suck on it. When I got really cold I came out and got my sunglasses. I took one of the towels and put it on the grass. Then I sat down and started to read.By Aiko

I can't wait until Christmas. It's my favourite time of year apart from Easter and my birthday. Last Christmas Me and Tess got a trampoline.Santa air landed on it. This year I want to get a new spa. I think everyone in my family wants a new one. I also want quit a lot of pig stuff. Two more are a Furby and another smiggle gift card. I also want rolly sunblock which might sound weird but I like it and it's also good for summer and Christmas is in sun. I would like a pair of Heelys.

Hotels are buildings where people can stay over night in a room.Lots of hotels have pools and water slides.People only need to stay in a hotel if you are on thing there expensive to stay in a hotel.A hotel is  not a motel, a motel is small and a hotel is big.that is all I know about Rio

I drew this using an APP called Finger Sketch.

The beautiful night sky

Watching the beautiful Shining stars flying through the night sky, all the trees near by go woooooooooooosh and again, wooooooooooooooooooosh.
I see this out my window.

I am learning to draw using the APP Finger Sketch.

A poem

I am a shooting star shooting across the sky looking down at the houses as I go by .
I'm waiting until someone wishes on me. 
I can see the moon when I go past. 
The Sun is very hot when I go past.

Erin Hunter

My favourite author is Erin Hunter. She writes Warriors and Seekers books.The reason she's my favourite author is because the Warriors books are about warrior cats who fight other clans and my favourite animal is a cat so I immediately know what it's about when I start reading a new Warriors book. If you like aventures then you should read the Warriors and Seekers books by Erin Hunter.

Here is the website you can go on to see more books.

Flowers are part of what we are learning.
Have you had flowers in your house.
Did you know there are over 100 sorts of flowers in the world.
If you like flowers you should get some for your house.

The little butterfly poem

I'm a little butterfly.
See me flap my wings.
I'm so beautiful I could just be a model.
If I had a bow in my hair and a dress I would be the beauty Queen.
With make up I would look like a Barbie doll.
My wings are pink and black.
By Kassidy and Ellie

The bad typhoon in the Philippines

In the Philippines there was a big typhoon.In our school we are having a coin trail on a heart down on the lower quad. Please bring a coin and take it down to the heart please.By Rio

Staying in a motel

I'm staying in a motel.  At the start I didn't want to stay there but then my mum said there was a  pool and spa I got a little excited.  When I got there I wanted to  go  for  a swim but the pool and spa were inside but I didn't  care.  That night after dinner I read and went straight to sleep.

Blogger Challenge

For last week's challenge we had to think about what makes a good comment. It's hard to get comments on our blog. It takes a lot of work for people to read our blog and leave a comment but we love it when we get them. 

Here are a few examples of great comments. We think they are great because:

  • they mention our names
  • they say a greeting
  • they refer to something specific in our blogpost
  • they have signed their first name so we know who it is from

What do you think makes a good blog comment?

It was so cute! When my friends came over we went to Megazone.

My favourite one was a robot pig. Aiko gave it to me. After that we had pizza.

When we had got home we jumped on the tramp with Esme's little brother while we were waiting for Esme's mum to finish her coffee.

Minecraft Vs Terrira

Firstly the adventure. Terrira has more adventure like the green slime because you can spawn the eater of worlds. Secondly we go to how much you can craft. Well obviously there is a lot more to craft in Terrira.   
But Mine Craft - it's no match because minecraft pretty much is the only one with creative mode on the iPad and I'm pretty sure Xbox 360 Terrira costs $9.99 minecraft costs $9.99 on iPad and costs $40 on computer. But in world size Terrira is your choice. You can choose small, medium, large and you can make your  like on wii when on minecraft you can wear armor and dress up in clothes, in order to do that, go into skins. 

Now it's time to face off with the mods. Minecraft has lots of mods like the boat mod, the M&M mod. You download mods on Terrira mod. There is a flashlight mod the speed mod, so minecraft has more mods. Now it's the last face off the game all together we'll it prepares what you like adventure or building minecraft wins building. It's your choice. But this is my review. 
Minecraft 4pts 
Terrira 4pts

Buddy Reading

In the Starships group we are learning to be a good buddy. A good buddy listens to their buddy read and then give them feedback. Good buddies also discuss the story and only talk about the story. Good buddies are also great listeners. They listen to the questions from their buddies and answer them sensibly.

This is Weston, Benjamin, Ellie and Cherry's first reflection on their buddy reading session.

The best school trip ever

On Friday we went to Tiritiri Matangi. We got the school bus down to the Auckland City ferry terminal. When we were at Tiritiri Matangi we got into groups. The first bird I saw was a Tui. There were lots of Tui. I spotted a Kokako in the trees. We saw a parakeet on the gravel. We saw heaps of awesome birds. I think Tiritiri Matangi is a great place to go.

Am I connected?

Alisa from the block

 On the 29th October 2013 Elisa from the block NZ came in to room 16. We asked her a lot of questions. She said the kitchen was what cost the most. She thinks that the boys had the best other house. Her most stressing challenge was the first when they had to make a room in 10 hours. The judges did not like it at all. They did not like the yellow walls. They bought lots from Bunnings Warehouse and Freedom Furniture and a shop that sold old stuff. She said she loved to cook. She broke lots of things in the game. Their worst one was when the shower glass frame started to shiver and smashed just before judges came. It was great fun. She looked at our houses we made while learning about Area and Noah read her his dream house story. 

We taught her our famous Sky Tower claps!

Tiri Tiri Matangi

Last week Rooms 7,16 and 17 went on  a huge trip. We went to Tiri Tiri Matangi to see New Zealand native birds in their natural environment. 

We will be posting our learning about the trip over the next week.
