Smart Learner Snagit

We have been learning to become smart learners. Mrs Grant has taught us to follow the kawa of care and be in the right place at the right with right attitude. This screencast is cybersmart and positive because we have worked so hard to create this snagit.

We used PicMonkey to create a collage. We had to go on the photo tab under the class site and look at the photos that Mrs Buchanan has taken and put on the class site. I have chosen to use cress for my collage. I chose cress because in all the photos that Mrs Buchanan has taken there are no other photos of me so I chose cress. If you had to make a collage with a vegetable or fruit what fruit or vegetable would you choose?

A very long time ago Rooms 9 and 10 had to make a movie for the film festival. The date that the film festival took place was the 11th of November 2015. My role was the letter R. We all had to draw Maori patterns and I had to stick the patterns on with Julianne. When it was videoing time, I had to hold the letter R with Peter. We had to wait a very time after we walked across the field. Then we all had to yell RUAPOTAKA and there it was, our class movie!

A Snagit About My Favorite Movie!

This is my snagit that I have created with Meana who is in Room 9. If you watch this video you will know what our favourite movies are. It was very easy to make it because me and Meana listened very well to Mrs Buchanan and Miss Ginders.

To create my infographic I had to think about the size and also I had to think about what I was going to say in my callouts. Also the information that I have shared I got from other blogs and individual blogs and before I had launched my blog I had to create a infographic about what I could put on a my individual blog. Everyone in Room 10 has created a infographic, just like me but some people have a different title but some people have the same title as me for the infographic that they have made.

This is my poem that I have made for Guy Fawkes day. I had to think about the colour of the background and also the colour of the text and also the size of the text. I wrote this because after Guy Fawkes day we were told to write what we did on Guy Fawkes day and this is what I did. I chose to do a poem because the first thing that came to my mind was an acrostic poem.

My Kawa Of Care

I had to think about the size of my pictures and also what I was going to say for my call outs. I had to think about responsibility, like... tapping my keys gently and holding my chromebook with two hands not one!

Do You Know How Many?...

Yesterday I made a round pizza. I made it out of clay. The colour of the clay was green. What I had to do was think about the size and how I was going to cut it up into equal pieces. After that I had to put toppings on the pizza. The toppings that I put on is pineapple, mushrooms and also pepperoni. Take a look at the photo. Do you know how many toppings I have on my pizza?

Visiting Buckingham Palace In England

This is one of the first Digital Learning Objects that we created and it was quite tricky.  I chose somewhere in the world I would like to visit one day.  Then I found an image of it on Google images.  Next, I cut around a photograph of my head using Pixlr so I could put myself in that place.  Maybe I will travel there in the future in real life.

On 25th April 2015, it was the 100th anniversary of ANZAC soldiers landing at Gallipoli.  We learnt lots of things about life and war for the ANZAC soldiers when we visited Auckland Museum in April.  We created poppies, we have written poems and letters about ANZAC and World War 1.

I have chosen to share my acrostic poem about ANZAC because I have been working on ANZAC and I have worked really well on this. I have learnt a lot of facts about ANZAC Day and the soldiers that went to war.

Ctrl Shift T

I find CTRL SHIFT T really useful because it reopens your tabs and I find it way quicker than just trying to find the tab that you 
 were on.

I Want To Go To Australia

blog profile picture.jpg

Kia Ora and talofa lava! My name is Katrina and I’m a year 5 student at Ruapotaka School in Room 10. My teacher's name is Mrs Buchanan. My principal's name is Mrs Vickers. My nationality is Cook Island and Maori.

My favourite subjects at school are maths and reading. The thing I’m good at is mostly maths because I can find heaps of ways to solve the maths problem. My maths goal is to learn my 6, 7, 8, 9 and 12 times tables. The other thing I like to do is play sports. The sports I like to play most of all are softball and soccer.

The most favourite things I like to do are sing and play knucklebones with my friends. I have 3 brothers and 1 sister. My pet's name is Mayka and he is my pet dog. My favourite food is butter chicken on rice. The people I admire are my family because they always help with the things  that I need help with, like my homework and my times tables. The place I want to go is Australia.

Please enjoy my blog.
