Soooooooooo (not) Close

And we made it to fifth last spot on the preferential voting ballot. :^/ Here’s a photo of the results:

I was elected leader for our political party, P.E.P.P (Professional Electives and Pet Party). Of course it wasn’t real, like, seriously, who would want to be part of a political party? Our day started off by setting up our table. The grade fours were the first voters that came in. It was pretty easy at first because the grade fours weren’t asking really deep questions. Then there was the grade fives. They were asking really in depth questions that picked at your brains, ate your brains, and then your brain grew back again on constant repeat. End. Of. Story. On the brighter side, the day was interesting and exciting. If you are doing a project like this and your the leader, pro tip: always make sure your team are doing what they’re supposed to be doing.

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.
