My Learning Goals for Term 3


I have been identifying my literacy goals for the start of term 3.
My reading teacher is Mrs Marsh.
My writing teacher is Mrs Marsh.

So What?

My handwriting goals are to flick and link letters neatly and I am still learning to use cursive.

My spelling goal is vocabulary development.

My writing goal is to identify the structure and features of a moment in time/descriptive writing, and to plan our moment in time using our senses.

My reading goal is to understand what the author has written in a paragraph to help us make a sensible prediction on what will happen in the next paragraph.

Now What?

My blog goals are:
To proofread and edit my blog post before publishing.
To use a variety of ways to show my learning (text, photos/images, video).
To do a ‘Can Do’ blog about an achievement, some other learning or something i am proud of.

Term 2 Highlights

Some things I have enjoyed this term are:
Passion Project because I could do it with my friends and on anything I want to, as long as it's related to learning.
Writing my information report because I got to do it on what ever I wanted to do it on, and I did it on Roblox.
Silent reading because I love reading, as long as it's not out loud!


What? IALT: Create a four line rap, and gradually make it longer.

So What? I have learnt that usually raps rhyme.

Now What? My next step is to make an eight line rap.


IHBL: A hip hop routine, and to combine different movements in to a dance routine to Treasure by Bruno Mars.
So What?

        I really enjoyed doing the robot.
        My favourite dance was the hip hop.
        I found the robot the most challenging.
        What I enjoyed most about Dean’s teaching was that he made learning fun.
        I feel quite confident with the dance routines we learned.
        I was able pick up the different dance routines quickly.
        I found remembering the correct sequence for the dance routines easy and fun.

Now what?

        I would like to do further dance lessons because dancing is fun!



I have been learning to solve subtraction problems by using equal additions from a tidy number. 

So What?
I have learned that when you have an equation like 73 - 28  = you can either add the same number to both sides, or you can subtract the same number from both sides. 
I feel that I am confident at this activity. So I give myself a thumbs up:)

Now What?

My next step is to use this strategy independently, without using a piece of paper, or a whiteboard.


What? My goal is to write in paragraphs so that my stories make sense.
So what? I have learnt that you start a new paragraph when there is a new speaker, a new place, a new time, or a new topic/idea.
 Now what? My next step is to put 4-7 sentences into a paragraph because sometimes I put more than 4-7 sentences in a paragraph.


What? I am learning about our new literacy programme.
So what? I do reading on Tuesdays and Thursdays and I do SML on Mondays and Wednesdays. I do writing after I have done fitness, which is after reading and SML.
                My reading teacher is Mr Rule,
                My writing teacher is Mr Forman,
                My SML teacher is Mrs Marsh.
Now what? My next step is to in the SML class, not to get distracted so that I will get more time on my Passion Project.


What? I am learning to complete a statistical investigation.

So what? I have learned that the steps in the Statistical Inquiry Model are:
1. Identifying a question to survey
2. Conducting the survey, recording data
3. Collating data and showing results in graph form
4. Interpreting results and presenting findings.

Now what? Something I have learned from gathering my data is out of KFC, Fish'n chips, McDonalds, Burger King, Pizza, Subway, and Other. Other seems to be the most popular.

Reciprocal Reading

What? I am learning about reciprocal reading.

So What? I have learned that reciprocal reading involves students being leaders. Everyone is expected to contribute.

Now What? Two areas I want to better at are prediction and clarification.

Te Reo Maori

What? We have been learning language about Ko Au which means Me, Myself, and I.

So What? Something I have learnt to say is Ko Aoraki te maunga (My mountain is Aoraki )

Now What? My next learning step is to say my whole Mihi without reading it.
