I like my Chromebook because I get heaps of learning done. Like research is way easier to find rather than making your teacher do all the searching. Also It has a dictionary much easier than having to grab a dictionary and flipping through pages looking for the word you want. SO thats why I like MY chromebook.
It’s helped my learning by making it easier to find research and it helps me find words that I don’t understand. Plus its better than a book because when you make a mistake you can easily backspace it rather that having a bunch of crossed out words in your book. I can type faster too. I hear a lot of people saying I’m a fast typer. So thats what it means for my learning.
Today we were writing about Cross Country 2014. What I done well was all the writing and stuff. Next time I will make a better story.
It was a icky , muddy, wet and cold day… But we didn’t care! It’s our Cross country
Once I reached the starting line my heart was pounding. I thought I would come last. I started getting apprehensive. Then 3, 2, 1 GO! I was overwrought I was thinking I am going to come last, I know it I just know it.
I Looked back. I saw heaps of girls. I saw my teacher and friends they were all cheering me on. Haaaa! Yes finally I made it. I had done pretty well 6th place better than last year. I felt proud and successful I was dehydrated but I made it. I was thinking man I am glad I am done.
In my class long time ago I wrote a recount about what I done in the weekends. What I done well was all the writing. Next Time I will make sure I post this earlier.
WALT: Write a recount using our mind map.
One scorching hot Sunday afternoon me and the rest of my family went to the back of our house to have a picnic as soon as we saw the food we couldn’t stop eye-balling them. We sat under the shade on a blanket but the only thing we ate were lollies and popcorn we also had fizzy. MUNCH, MUNCH, MUNCH was all we heard because we were so hungry popcorn was going lollies were the same. The fizzy ended up everywhere. We started runnin all over the place like headless chickens that have eaten way too much candy. We made a really really big mess outside that you couldn’t even see the blanket. CRUNCH! went the popcorn. SMUSH! went the lollies and the drink we all slipped on. After that we rang by brother in-law on skype to say “ Happy Birthday”. He was very Merry to hear it. My sister thought for my mum’s birthday they should come over and surprise my mum. She lives in sydney so we hardly see them. So thats why we have picnic’s most of the time.
We were learning about Nelson Mandela we were finding facts about and here is mine.
I thought I did my facts really well.
Next time I would improve on writing more then what I have now.
Nelson Mandela was born July 18th 1918 in Mvezo South Africa. His dad was the chief of the Thimbu Royalty. When he went to school he was named Rolihlahla but his teacher could not say his name correctly so he was called Nelson for the rest of his life. Soon he was used to his new name and didn’t care. He passed through college and University. Then he received a Law degree. So thats how he became president.
Nelson Mandela was a leader of the ANC. He wanted a non-violence approach. He was accused by the African government for terrorist. After he was imprisoned for 27 years. After he come out people thought that he would be forgotten but he come out and was treated like a king. Then he became the first black president.
I admire Nelson Mandela because he is like a leader he never got angry when blacks were treated differently. Also he never used his hands to change things he used his mind and his words. He’s a very powerful man he made me realise that we need to leave the hands and use the words. That is why I admire him.
