Processed Food

Processed food are foods like cakes, pastry, muffins and biscuits can have a lot of sugar and fat, which makes us high in energy.

What happens if you eat too much processed food? If people eat too much processed food it can lead to a health issue, heart diseases, high blood pressure and diabetes.

Is Processed Food good or bad? I think processed food is good for eating processed food because fats make our brain work properly and it gives us energy but not too much.

Evaluating

I learnt how to evaluate.

First, I had to brainstorm 2 different opinions. My two opinions were: Mack just wanted to confirm the Guiness World Record and Mack just wanted to be a pilot

Next, I had to write my proof.

Last, I had to pick my opinion. The opinion I chose was Mack wanted to be a pilot because he wanted to follow his dreams.

I enjoyed this activity because I learnt how to evaluate. I did well at writing the proof. I need to improve on brainstorming 2 different opinions.

Making Connection

We revised making connection.

First, we read two different text which they are “The Three Little Pigs” and “This Little Pig”.

Next, we had to make connection with the two text we read. For an example: This Little Pig stayed home. My connection was The other two little pigs stayed at the third’s little pigs house. Then I typed down my other two connection I made.

I enjoyed this activity because I made connection with two different text. I did well on typing down my connections I made. I need to improve on finding a different text to make connection with.

Making Connection – Happy New Year

We learnt how to make connection.

Making connection is connecting the knowledge to a new knowledge that is on the text. There was 3 different connection that can be made: Text to Self, Text to World, and Text to Text.

I needed to make a connection of myself and the text.

I enjoyed this activity because we revised learning Make Connection. I need to improve on remembering what make connection is. I did well on making a connection of myseld and the text.

 

Presentation

I presented a text about possums. Alexxa, Mason, Daeyna and Kayson were involved. We did this to improve reading and to practise our skills that we did over the past four weeks.

First, Mason talked about the possums and the problem they cause in New Zealand. Possums are causing problems because they devour the plants that many native animals eats.

Next, Alexxa talked about why possums came to New Zealand. Possums came to New Zealand because in Australia had to brushtail possums which they were made into warm coats and made lots of many with it.

Then, I talked about the good points about possums and Daeyna talked about the bad points about possums. One of the good points about possums is that they don’t attack people often. One of the bad points about possums is that they eat all the plants that many native animals eat.

After. Kayson talked about what the group thought about the topic.

Last, Mr Wong had to score if my group did well or not. My group and I scored a Merit. We got this score because we had a full conclusion.

I enjoyed this activity because. I did well on speaking audible sentences. I need to improve on giving eye contact at the audience by not looking at the chromebook.

Possums Problem

I learnt information about the Possums Problem.

First, we needed to understand the text by using the Extended Discussion cards. The five Extended Discussion roles are: Leader, Comprehender, Opposer, Questioner and Clarifier. The Leader needed to ask any following questions like Who, What, Why, How. The Comperhender needed to answer the question by saying “I think…”. Then the Comperhender needs to pass the question on and say “What do you think…?”.  The Opposer must disagree with the most commonly agreed answers by saying “I respectfully disagree. I think…”. The Clarifier needs to check the group if they understand and say “Do we agree that…?.

Next, we needed to read page 4 and we had to answer the two questions, they are: “Why were the farmers and gardeners fed up?” and “How has herd testing and possum control helped reduce spreading tuberculosis.”

I enjoyed this activity because I learnt information about Possums Problem. I did well on being Comperhender. I need to improve on being Opposer.

New Zealand at War

I read a text about New Zealand at War.

First, we needed to read the text in buddy’s or independent about the New Zealand at War.  

Next, we used reciprocal reading to understand the text, the roles are: Leader, Comprehender, Antagonist, and Clarifier. The Leader needed to ask any following questions like Who, What, Why, How. The Comperhender needed to answer the question by saying “I think…”. Then the Comperhender needs to pass the question on and say “What do you think…?”.  The Antagonist must disagree with the most commonly agreed answers by saying “I respectfully disagree. I think…”. The Clarifier needs to check the group if they understand and say “Do we agree that…?.

Last, we needed to create an audio recording of our group’s discussion.

I enjoyed this activity because we revised on using the reciprocal reading routine. I did well on being the Comperhender. I need to improve on being Antagonist so I could be better at disagreeing with other people.

What inference is?

Inference is guessing information that is on the image or the text.

Inference is a conclusion or opinion that is formed of known facts or evidence and it’s something that you can infer which is on the image or the text. For an example: The question is What is venison? How do you know?. Venison is meat that is from an deer. I knew that is what it means because in the first text it said “There’ll be no venison to take home.

Inference is guessing extra information.

What is inference?

Inference is guessing information that is on the image or the text.

Inference is a conclusion or opinion that is formed of known facts or evidence and it’s something that you can infer which is on the image or the text. For an example: I can see a man with it’s hand in the air, so I can infer that the man infront is going to win because he’s putting his hand up.

Inference is guessing extra information.

What is the observable and literal information?

Observable information is something that can be seen directly. Literal information is information that is printed and written down.

Observable information is something that can be seen without guessing extra. For an example: In the third slide, there is a boy climbing on the stairs.

Literal information is information that is printed and written down that describe the image and text. For an example: What did the old woman do for living? And the answer is by completing small errands for farmers.

Observable information and Literal information are true piece of information that is written down or that is on the image.
