Maui and the giant fish.

Today we did a practice activity for the Summer Learning Journey.
First we read the story Maui and the Giant Fish.
Then we wrote 3 facts we learned from the story.
Here are my facts:
Early in the morning his brothers were sleeping,  Maui took his fishing line and hid himself in the canoe. When the brothers woke up they noticed something was different because Maui was in the the bottom of the canoe that it made it heavier.

Maui hid in the bottom of the canoe because he wanted to go fishing but his brothers made up excuses for him not to go.

Maui secretly hatched a plan so he can prove to his older brother that he's a good fishermen.Maui’s plan was go out at night  when the brother are sleeping then Maui went and he caught a big fish.

In the story the boy says he just got back from the hospital twenty - four hours and i think when he came back home he missed the  mud puddles why he jumped in the puddles.
The best part of the story was when the man comes and the boys in the trolley and they run away .

I walked home from school yesterday.

Writing Workshop 1, 19/9/2017.
WALT stretch out our writing and make it more interesting.

Success Criteria: We started out with a simple sentence then made it better.

During my way home from school I saw a huge pack of  noisy hungry dogs that were barking loudly
\at each other. It was so noisy I could still hear the thunderous noise in my head when I  eventually got home. I decided to walk outside and give them some food. I  patted their bony little heads to try and quieten them down.

The bird is wearing those clothes.
Because the dangerous animals  that  storm clouds makes doesn't hurt the bird.
The storm cloud is making the sky cry because he thinks that nobody likes him.
People are  like  that  just because they don’t  like storm clouds.
I know that this cloud is a storm cloud
Because the other clouds are pink.
I think the stork is feeling tired and hurt
Because he has black eyes and losing his feathers .
I think the white clouds get to make Babies,Cats and dogs with powers and the grey one looks sad.
Because this grey cloud is storm cloud and does stuff different to the others.

Is it ok to climb trees?

Is it ok to  climb trees?

WALT:write an opinion

I think we should not climb trees.
Because people can fall off and slip on the branch and fall to the ground.
Because they will go to the hospital for her or his broken leg or arm.
It's not going to be ook then you will get sore leg.
Then you can't play when whanau come over.
You can play with whanau and friends when they go over to your house for the week end but you can play some games cards,board games with each can lay because you just lay on the side and play then you can play games like easy games for people that have broken legs. I think that we should not climb trees.
