Facts Finding in Non-Fiction Texts

 My Reflection 
I was learning to use the 5W finding the main ideas in the articles.  I used this information to write a summaries of the articles.  I thought it was easy and difficult in between to find some of the facts .  It was easy and hard the same in between to write the summary because it was just putting my notes into sentences.  My next step is to practice more at finding the main ideas.

Term 2 Week 9

This week we were doing speeches in our class room. We were doing this so we can choose who is going to be our 2 people that are going to represent us in the school speech finals in Term 3. 

I was very scared. I really wanted to get in the finals and to see who is the winner. I was so nervous about doing my speech but I sucked it up and I said my speech. I had butterflies in my tummy when I was up there.  I was very shy.  When I herd them saying my name I was scared that they were going to give me bad results on my speech.

But I kept believing in myself and kept on trying, even when I think they don't like it I kept on going. When I was up there I was thinking in my head  please like it please like it and I hoped that they were  going to like it.  And guess what they loved it I was so happy when they loved it.  At the end they clapped I was so happy.   
I was so proud of my self and I was happy. I hope I get picked to be representing my classroom.  I am still waiting...

Term 2 Week 7

Last week Rm28/29 just started this weekly task .  You know why we are doing because our teachers want us to be able to managing our selfs in stayed of just listening to them.  That is quiet boring for me.  So what we do is they give us a planing sheet then we plan what we are going to do for the rest of the week some of us we don't want the sheet so we just do what we need to do but I feel safe with the sheet and i feel happy with it.  But we have some must do and we have to do workshops from each subject,like maths,reading and writing.  We have a site to go to to get all these kind of links to do our activates.  This really good for my learning because I use to not manage my own self but know Iv'e been push to do best in my learning and to manage my self.  This is the best way to learn in life.
