This week me and Hajera started to write our summary. We first started on listing 20 words and then writing down the most important 6 words. We read about how the treaty was written and who wrote it.

Chinese New Year

How Chinese New Year Is celebrated?

The famous Chinese New Year is celebrated around the world. It is celebrated with people
cleaning their homes for the start of spring. People around the world put up red posters
with poetic sentences on them and put them on their doors. Chinese New Year is also the
time where friends and family meet up and enjoy their time together.

Near the end of the holiday people light lanterns and either let them fly in the sky or on let
them float on top of water.  In the middle of the celebration people light fireworks and
firecrackers. People often give unmarried people and kids red envelopes with money inside.

At night people eat their dinner packed with lots of delicious foods. They celebrate with some
specific foods like Shrimp , Noodles and Egg Rolls. These three foods represent a long life,
happiness and gold bars. Foods that are common when eating on Chinese New Year is fish,
Wasabi, Kim chi, vegetables , rice and curry. Other cultures celebrate Chinese New Year
because of the special events that happen.

The tradition is also about 12 animals. These animals competed in a race which the Jade
emperor will chose its year for it to be celebrated. The recent year 2018 is the dog.
Chinese New Year is celebrated because a dragon would arrive on the new moon and
goes when the full moon comes up.

People celebrate Chinese New Year to remember the Chinese legend about the Mysterious
beast who would visited the town and scared the people in the village… But a old man
stumbled towards the village and told them about the beasts weakness. The colour red,
loud noises and more. The beast then left on the full moon never to visit again.


This week LS2 started writing a explanation about Chinese New Year.  We all worked with a person in another writing group. It was fun working with other people other than peers I work with. Our first thoughts on writing about Chinese New Year was easy, but wasn't as expected. Instead it was quite hard finding out the truth and why it is celebrated. Although its not just celebrated in China but country's all over the world which surprised Brooklyn and I at first, but studying Chinese New Year made much more sense then before we learnt more about the famous tradition.

Winter Olympic Mascot Comparison

 This week we have started our first inquiry session! I have worked with a group of three, Shakaia and Jeremiah. As you may know the winter Olympics are coming up and we have made a google slide about two mascots. We first started out finding a past mascot that we all agreed on. We all decided to chose the snow leopard. After choosing one of the past winter Olympic mascots we then did some research about them and also compared them. We had to also write about Soohorang or as many would call him the white tiger. There was a lot of comparisons we may or may not of put in. Although This was a really fun activity we did for inquiry this week!

How to add decimal digits.

Today my lovely teacher taught a group of people on how to add decimal digits. Its a really easy and simple step. First if you are stuck with tenth decimal digits then you will have to add up the tenths first. For example 2.5 + 3.3 would equal 5.8 because first off you want to take your two decimals digits and add them together. But theirs a trick to it! If your two decimal numbers go above 10 then you would have to add the number on the right for example the ten. After that you want to then add your one to your whole numbers. You want to try stick with this strategy for the 100s and 1000s. This trick is exactly like place values which most of yous have already learnt.

Blog Post Record

Yesterday we were set up for making a graph about all of our posts each year. 2015 was the first year I got my Chromebook and worked really hard because it was the first time I got it. I worked really hard when I got my Chromebook that year.  Then after we gathered all the data from our blog we then made a google spread sheet and put our data on it. Then we made a graph with all of our data and put it on a google draw. After that was done we wrote why we either improved over the years or didn't...  I also wrote my goals for 2018 to do really well this year as it is a new year.

Show Don't Tell

Excited Chance

I heard the screams of excitement come from inside the building.

People winning tickets and winning prizes for themselves.

I felt excitement run inside me or waves splashing inside my stomach.

I slowly took my time moving the claw.

I wondered what I wanted and saw a teddy.

I felt like the claw was in a good spot.

Today for the start of the term we started it of with writing. We had to write 7 sentences that clue the reader to guess where we were at in our summer holiday like the beach or pools. You could get bonus points for using special words in your sentences. Can you guess where I was at?
