The Anything Everything Shop

I read a story called The Anything Everything Shop by Simon Cook for reading. These are some of the fictional words in the story and what I think they mean.

Oggle Tree: An oggle tree is a tree that produces 1 oggle fruit every thousand years.

Slurp Monsters: Slurp monsters are greedy and mean.

The School Picnic

Did you know that if your going to take a whole school to have a picnic on the beach, you need 1 parent for every 5 kids? Well it’s true. Its the law, and that's how we were able to go on our school picnic.

The game I enjoyed the most was volleyball. Nervously, I hit the ball and the game started. It was lots of fun because I was playing with some of my old classmates.

After playing volley, I started making clay sculptures on the beach. When I made my first sculpture I got dirty, then the next one I made got me even more dirtier. Even though I got messy, I had lots and lots of fun.

All and all, it was a great picnic. Lots of fun, family and friends. The picnic was a success.

My Maths Goal for this Week

My goal in maths for this week is to learn how to solve math questions with tidy tens. Two ways I can achieve this goal is to keep repeating it, and another way is to write it on a piece of scrap paper.

My Vision Board 2012

This year, 2012 I have set some goals for myself. I want to improve in my volleyball skills. One thing that will help me in my life and at school is to learn my time tables from 13-15. Another goal I have made, is to be able to write 5 pages at story writing time. That's right, my two sisters, this year I really want to communicate better with my two seriously annoying sisters. Last but not least, I want to be able to play the uke, piano, keyboard and guitar better, ohhh, I also want to improve in singing.

Monday Mornings

I am learning to write a introduction that hooks in my audience. Here are 3 verses. Which Monday morning introduction do you like and why.

Did you know that there are 52 Mondays in a year. Out of those 52 miserable Monday morning, us kids have to wake up for school on 40 Mondays. Its a good thing that we don't have to school all the time.

2. Do you know what day I hate the most? If you guessed Mondays, your absolutely right. To me, Monday mornings are a nightmare.

3. Another Monday morning. All I wanted to do was sleep, sleep, sleep. Suddenly I heard my Dad shout, “Lisia, get out of bed and get changed for school.”

I like swimming.
But I don’t like drowning.

I like the rain.
But I don’t like getting wet.

I like the Internet.
But I don’t like it when it doesn't work.

I like volley ball.
But I don’t like getting hit on the head.

I like painting.
But I don’t like getting painted on.

I like my bedroom.
But I don’t like cleaning it up.

I like dogs.
But I don’t like dog pooh.

I like riding bikes.
But I don’t like falling off the bike.

The Kingfishers

Do you know what bird I'm going to be talking about? If you guessed The Kingfisher, your right. Kingfishers live in the wild, so if you want a pet kingfisher then you have to go into the wild. The kingfishers plumage is brightly blue coloured. It loves to eat insects, bugs and grasshoppers. One more little information you should know is that the Maori name for kingfisher is Kotare.

My Holiday

“It’s the holidays now, let’s go to the Beach.” In the holidays my Aunt and step Mum thought it was a great to take me, my three sisters and two cousins to the beach, everyone got really excited.Before we went to the beach we had to pack our swimming togs and food. We were ready to go to the beach.

When we got to the beach me, my sisters and my cousins ran in to the water and started swimming, the water was freezing cold but then it got warmer.

When we got back home everyone went straight to sleep.
