We are getting organised and hoping to win the school terrarium challenge. Thank you to Patrick (who also supplied the cars for decoration), Ryan, James, Jennifer and Courtney who helped set the terrarium up. Another big thank you to Dylan, Jake and Seannah who also bought some decorations to make our terrarium look really special. The dinosaurs were a really nice touch Dylan. 🙂
Then today I overheard Jake showing our terrarium to a couple of year 7s at lunchtime and explaining how it works. How cool.
You need to create a new post on your blog that includes this phrase. I will then submit them to the 100 word challenge page. PLEASE remember to re-read carefully as the world is going to see your entries.
I have found a site called the 100 word challenge which is all about encouraging students to write. Some of you may have noticed I have added it to the ‘Great sites’ list on the sidebar of my blog.
The following activity comes from this site but we were too late to do it. However, to get you prepared for upcoming 100 word challenges, we are going to practise using this prompt. Look at the picture and the questions below, and on your blog create a new post that responds to these. Remember – only 100 words. I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
You have been working very hard at writing quality information reports this term. So far we have written reports about an animal, a famous person, and the 2004 boxing day tsunami. I would like you to choose one of these, the one you are most proud of, and publish it on your blog. Check out the following links to a couple of information reports from our class.
Well guys, we are just over half way through the term. We have done a lot already! I want you to write a post that includes the following:
What have you enjoyed the most so far? (You can have more than one thing)
When have you been in the learning pit and found things challenging?
I would like you to write paragraph answers – not just one or two words. For example:
So far this term I have really enjoyed getting to know my class and getting the Room 5 routine established. I love how we end each day in a circle as it is a really positive and calming way to end the day. I’m also really enjoying seeing most of Room 5 really challenge themselves in their learning and realising that mistakes are great because we learn so much from them.
