STOP WASTING ELECTRICITY

STOP WASTING ELECTRICITY!

We want you to use electricity in important times.

1. When you use electricity you waste allot of electricity. You are wasting people’s work to get the electricity for us.

2. When you go somewhere at night time you would not be able to see.

3.  You will get a very dark black out.

You can save electricity by turning off light switches, turn off your radio when you’re finished with it. If you have toys that can speak, turn them off. Turn off the remotes for toys when you’re done with them. Turn off the computer when you’re finished. Turn off the heater because your blanket will keep you warm. Instead of reading of your computer read from your book. Turn off your printer. Turn off your fan.

Miss Molinari

cooltext1707321930There was a new teacher that was in university. Her name was Miss Molinari. She was learning how to be a good teacher. She could only stay for 3 weeks because she had to go back to university. She taught us some lessons. 

She mostly taught us reading and maths. On the 3rd week it was Friday and we felt sad so we gave her a gift so she could remember all of us in 2B.

She was nice and kind. We had fun with her.  We  almost cried on Friday when she left. She was happy to teach 2B.

She taught us amazing things.  We didn’t want her to leave.

She had fun in 2B. She was an amazing university teacher!

How to Take a Great Photo

 

Last week Avraj, David, Zara and Kate were part of a Google Hangout with photography expert, Daniel Hedrick, from the USA.

They learnt some great photography tips, especially for taking photos using iPads. They became our photography experts and taught the rest of the grade how to take great photos.

Here are some of the photos we took using the new skills we learnt:

Here is our iPad tips poster, with some of the things we learnt from our experts:

The narratives poster is about beginning, middle and ending, or orientation, problem and solution.

In 2B we have been learning how to write narratives.

Beginning / Orientation

We put the setting and characters in (which is who and where). We can include some sentences about what has happened. We should use exciting words, like disappointed, commotion, incredible and awesome. We have to include a bold beginning (hook the reader) by putting interesting words, describe using adjectives, verbs and nouns, describe characters and settings and using onomatopoeia.

You can roll a dice on any setting and you can choose it. If you're stuck you can roll again.

You can use one of the dice and it can give you ideas for your character.

Problem / Middle

The problem is what goes wrong in the story. We have to make sure it has nice and juicy information. We have to include three or more events. We use our five senses which are

  • feel – I can feel the hot breath on my face.
  • hear – I can hear a bush swinging in the wind. 
  • taste – I can taste the chocolate and strawberry melting in mouth.
  • smell – I can smell the salty ocean.
  • see – I can see a scary, gooey, green, terrifying monster behind my house.

End / Solution

The solution is when they solve the problem. The character that is in danger should save themselves, not another person.

How Can We Use People Power?

We have been hard at work answering our guiding questions for the CBL topic of “Power”, including the question

“How can you use power?” 

We looked at people power with our Pre-Service Teacher Miss Molinari and thought about how different people can have different types of power.

We each chose a person we think is powerful, and decided how we would use that power if we could be them.

We used blabberize.com to show our thinking.

These are our powerful people!
