The Return of the STORYBOOK!!!! (Year Six edition!)

From one crazy teacher to the next, huh? Another storybook. What. The. Heck. We’re in grade six for goodness sake!!!!!

Henry and Amy are two best friends that are opposites. Whilst reading the book, we uncovered hidden messages (not dinosaurs) buried deep in the books pages. We then linked them to learning behaviours (Here, this might help to recap!).

A few hidden messages I found were: It’s alright to make mistakes and not everybody’s perfect. This year in year six I know I will be expected to contribute to conversations and listen to instructions.

My learning behaviour goal is that I will accept my mistakes and learn from them.

Fabulous fantastic fotos! (I got that wrong, didn’t I?)

Sorry about the spelling mistake. Can’t change it. Anyway, today we were taking photos using the rule of thirds. (Read the link before going on!) The photos that we had to take were places that we enjoyed playing at in prep and our current favourite area.

Here is my prep playing area:

This follows the rule of thirds because the post lines up to the first third.

This is my grade six photo. I think it looks pretty good!

This follows the rule of thirds because either side of the building is lined up with the grid.

Buddies, poems and dancing… what next?

What! you say? We got buddies? Yes you heard me correct, I said buddies, not studies (I would never do that anyway)! So yes, I have two buddies. All of the grade 5s wrote a picture story book to give to their buddies. Another thing that we did this week was a poetry analysis. We had to find three poems that we liked and thought were deep and meaningful. Here are my three:

And the most exciting thing that we did this week was the school concert. We were dancing to Animals by Martin Garrix. Everyone was clapping and WHOOPING at our dancin’ skillz. I did a solo at the end and others did some tricks.

The Western Wataaaaaaa!!! Ninjas

Yesterday a guest speaker came and spoke to us about sustainable living. My group found out about wind power to generate electricity. An interesting thing another group found out about was the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. It is 3 times the size of France (The size of Texas!!!!)! One thing I’m going to do differently is to not use plastic bottles anymore. This was who our speaker was. (Or is it? A question for the ages!)

Cat… cart… Coart… forget it! I can’t read it!

Cartesian plane. There we go! I said it. Woohoo!!!! *runs around celebrating* Yes, so we learnt about Cartesian planes. It is basically a + sign except bigger. It also has positive and negative numbers to locate places on the plane. If I didn’t explain it good enough try here for a better definition. For the Einsteins out there, here’s a question, what are the coordinates of this dot?
For the people that play Minecraft :
