Talofa Lava World!

Talofa and welcome to Samoan Language Week..

In Room 10 we are experiencing the sights, sounds and lifestyle of Samoa. On Monday we learned how to tie a lava lava and see if we could sit on the mat. We also got to use fans that Andrea brought from Samoa.

On Monday. I could not go to school because I was sick. On Sunday I vomited. When I was in bed on Sunday I was not feeling good. Funny thing I was thinking about I could not walk, but when I got up I could walk but my head was going left and right, left and right. I went to the my mum's room and cuddled up. Then I saw my brother on the tablet. If you do not know what a tablet is it is an ipad, but I was not going to the kitchen to go on the tablet, I was going to get the ipad so I got the ipad and went to the fridge and got a water bottle and drank and drank.

A penguins life cycle

Hello my name is Poppy and I wanted to share with you a penguins life cycle.
In January to March the adults fee. The things that they eat is salmon, sardines and other fish. In April they march as loud an elephant to rookery 60 to 100 miles in two hours. In may they do mating. Mating means that they make babies. In June and July they put their eggs between their skinny and cozy little legs. In August the baby chicks hatch. Crack! crack! The baby chicks hatch. In September to October they feed their chicks. In November they feed there chicks. Lastly the males go away. I love penguins!

Author's Playground

We have limited wall space in our new classrooms so we decided to share our guided writing worldwide...on our blog! 

Here are today's groups sharing their explanations about why cats are afraid of dogs. They decided to all do the same topic so they could share ideas. 
Isn't that kind?

Story of Invisible Isabelle

Invisible Isabelle - Click on this link to listen to the story.

This week is anti-bullying week and today we watched Invisible Isabelle. It's about a girl named Isabelle who got a sewing kit for her birthday. The next morning she woke up early and started to sow some clothes. When it was time for her to get on the bus everyone teased and made fun of what she was wearing. When she arrived at her class everyone else teased her. They called her a clown and laughed at her. She raced to the restroom and threw all her clothes that she had knitted in the bin then she only had her normal clothes on when she looked in the mirror she didn't see anything when her best friend Becky came in she screamed at her Becky didn't even blink Isabelle entered the art room and sat down to cry and said I'm invisible and don't know why just then the art teacher sensed she was in the room. Listen well or you'll be stuck invisible forever the problem is that you've lost your self expression but if you always follow and never take the lead you'll never find what you truly need now start making a new outfit said the art teacher. This time she made it with blue roses POOF! She appeared wow said the art teacher. All the other days her outfits came famous. That's the end. 
The message from the story is don't bully people and always be your true self!
