Social Study

Dear Mrs Anderson,
We have been researching different locations for your next holiday. We think you should go to Cleveland Metro parks Zoo, in Ohio because it is a huge (183 acre) zoo with many exotic and interesting animals like the Emerald Tree Boa and the Capybara. It would be the perfect place to relax and get some awesome pictures for your social media. I hope this persuades you to have your vacation at the Cleveland Metro parks Zoo. 

Jay-Don and Daniel.

Game Called Midnight

I felt happy when I first went to play midnight because it is a cool game. I was pumped up with energy, and ready for the game. If we kept moving our slots, we had to do star jumps. We played on the field and the grass tickled my feet as I was running.

Midnight was a hard game for me because we had to freeze when Mr Ogilvie turned around. I kept moving because when I run, I can’t stop. AHHHH! When the bell rang we went back to class and I felt very tired from all the running I had done.

Tech With Mr Grundy (SIR)

Why my blog is unique Explantion

Why my blog is unique
Learning Intention:  
  • To write an explanation that tells the reader why my blog is unique

A blog is a website that you can post your learning on. It goes around to a global audience. All blogs are different and that makes them unique. My blog is special because it’s different to everyone else’s blog.

I have 5,200 views on my blog. That means 5,200 people have looked at my examples of learning that I shared with the world. Each post has a blurb that tells what I have been learning.

I give each post a title and I label it so that my work is easy to find. For example if I post a poem I label it, ‘Explanation, Writing, Jaydon,  2017’  so that people searching for my explanation can find it quickly.

There is comments section under each post. This also makes your blog is unique because it allows people to give comments and information that is special to you about your learning.

Anyone around the global can view what you are learning. All blogs are different and that makes them unique and I think that blog is special because it’s different from everyone else’s blog.

Today we did writing we were talking about why my blog is unique. Unique means that it is different to someone else. My partner was Jona. Jona did really well working with me.
