Term 1 Novel Study

Term 1 Novel Study

This term I have been reading and studying the novel dragon keeper by carole wilkinson

I found this novel exiting  because it has lots of betrayal and twists and turns!!!

During the novel I had to complete two major assessment tasks. The first is an Explain Map which shows the consequences of a major event in the book. The second was a Describe++ Map (Inference map) which shows I how I have connected prior knowledge and other experiences to what I have been reading to make an inference.

National Standard this covers (delete the ones that are not appropriate)

  • Year 7/8  Standard
    • using several pieces of information to make inferences
      using their prior knowledge, along with information in the text, to interpret abstract ideas, complex plots, and sophisticated themes
    • I can use a range of strategies, such as inferring, to work out more complex words.

I can use strategies to analyse ideas and information and to reflect critically on the meaning I am gaining from my reading. (Eg: I can think about the meaning of the information and ideas and how this fits with what I think)

can do- merit #2

can dos

Today we went to technology. At the bus it wasn't too noisy.
 When we got off the bus we all split up to what ever tech we did. I do design textile and soft material . At design we worked on our projects .I finished my project so I worked on something else .I made a pillow that was kinda holographic.Every thing ran smoothly . At Chinese we learned how to ask "what are you eating " and answer "i am eating ..."all sorts of yummy food . 
On the way back to school we luckily arrived on time .  I showed the care value active thinking but using my time carefully. 

peer mediation - merit post 1

peer mediation 1 

today was my peer mediation day there were lots of problems but nobody was listening to what we was saying.
there was a little kid crying cause a big kid stole the ball off him saying that only year four and up students were allowed to play with the balls. the little kid said that it was his classes ball .we couldn't solve this problem cause the little kid was crying and shouting too much so we couldn't understand what the kid was saying . there was another child that accidentally dropped something down a drain and was crying saying it was brand new and special .we couldn't do any thing cause our hands were too big .we apologized to them.

I used the care value active thinking because i thought of the best possible way to figure out he problem

leadership article wirting

In writing I have been learning to:
  • use all basic punctuation independently
  • attempt more complex punctuation (e.g semicolons, colons, parentheses)

I have been especially focusing on using parentheses and commas. I have highlighted these in green where I have used them as well as other punctuation that I changed because it was used incorrectly. Here is a piece of my writing that shows this.

What makes an awesome peer mediator

Leadership is an act and skill of being able to help people achieve and work towards a goal. The six traits of being a great leader are Integrity,goal focused,trust worthy,active thinker,resilient and motivational. My key leadership role is peer mediator,this means one day a week I go out into the play ground wearing a green vest and lanyard and help people with problems between them and other people.I think its a vital importance to show the leadership traits in my role.
