Homework challenge #5

We went through my closet and toys. I found some clothes and toys that I can give away. I gave some stuff to my friend and she loved them. I also donated some clothes and toys to the salvation army. We also went through our towel cupboard and found some old towels, we donated them to the SPCA so they could use them for the animals there. Here are some photos. I showed community because I helped my local SPCA by giving them some towels.

Term 1 Novel Study

This term I have been reading and studying the novel Trash by Andy Mulligan

I found this novel okay because was not the best book I had ever read and it is starting to get a little bit boring.

During the novel I had to complete two major assessment tasks. The first is an Explain Map which shows the consequences of a major event in the book. The second was a Describe++ Map (Inference map) which shows I how I have connected prior knowledge and other experiences to what I have been reading to make an inference.

National Standard this covers

  • Year 7/8  Standard
    • using several pieces of information to make inferences
      using their prior knowledge, along with information in the text, to interpret abstract ideas, complex plots, and sophisticated themes
    • I can use a range of strategies, such as inferring, to work out more complex words.

I can use strategies to analyse ideas and information and to reflect critically on the meaning I am gaining from my reading. (Eg: I can think about the meaning of the information and ideas and how this fits with what I think)

Setting up assembly merit post #5 leadership

We have assemblys on Mondays, I volunteered to help. The job is to set up the chairs for the parents and seniors. It was quite hard because we put the chairs in rows of 6 and 3 chairs wide. The reason it was hard is we kept having to move them over or back. I made sure they were all straight by going up and down all the rows.

I showed Active thinking because I did not take down lots of chairs I took down the right amount of chairs so I did not have to put some back.

Peer Mediation Week 10 Merit Post #5

Today it was an inside lunch and Morning tea so I didn´t do my Peer Mediation but I did wet day monitors because the year 6´s (who usually do it) are on camp. Being a wet day monitor is very similar to a Peer Mediator, they both guide people. All the year 4 rooms are a different noise level room 6 is a silent zone. The problem was that I had to tell people to be quiet multiple times because they kept talking. I was drawing with Annabella on her scratchy pad thing that when you scratched it the black stuff came of and revealed lots of different colours it was so fun I was still keeping track of the kids in room 6 as well.

I showed Respect because I was aware that the concrete was wet and I walked so I did not slip while going over there. Also because it was a silent zone and I respected that other people wanted no noise.
