Why is it so important to keep oral story telling alive?

AJ and I created a 25 word summary to answer the question: Why is it so important to keep oral story telling alive? For this task, we had to listen to some videos that gave some answers to the question. The videos were in Te Reo so we had to use subtitles. We had to work collaboratively with our partners to complete this task. Our summary is 26 words, because it sounded better that way.


It’s important to teach younger generations about Maori storytelling to remember the past. It keeps the cultural and traditional stories alive so they won’t be forgotten.

Exploring Myths and Legends

I created a comic strip using a website called Storyboard that to practice using dialogue to show rather than tell what is happening or happened in a scene from the myth 'How Maui brought fire to the world'. I found it challenging to make sure that I used show and not tell, in my comic about Maui. Another thing I found challenging was finding where the characters and where the background/setting is because this was my first time using the site.

Maths


For maths today, we played a game called Ordering Fractions Game. In the game, (As you probably guessed) you had to order fractions. It is a very fun game and it helps you improve your ordering fractions skills. If you want to play it, here is the link: http://www.bbc.co.uk/skillswise/game/ma17frac-game-ordering-fractions

Winter Learning Journey

For this winter learning journey activity, I had to write a description about this week (What have I learned, what did I like about the trip, etc).
What I learnt: I have learnt a lot about New Zealand during these past 7 days of activity's. I learnt that there are many different beautiful places all around New Zealand, and they can be kept that way if people put things like their rubbish in the right place.
What I liked: I liked how we visited many different places. Taupo, Karekare beach - the list just goes on and on.  I had a great time going on a amazing kiwi road trip!
What I didn't like: I liked everything!

Winter Learning Journey

For this winter learning journey activity, I have to take a picture of myself doing something that I find relaxing. I find reading really relaxing so I decided to take a picture of myself reading. The book I was reading is called John Paul Jones who was a man who fought in the American navy. 

Winter Learning Journey

For this winter learning journey activity, I am walking around Taupo and I notice there is rubbish in the lake and on the footpath. I have to use my imagination and come up with three things I could do to make my neighborhood more beautiful.
1. If I see rubbish on the floor, I would pick it up
2. Talk to as many people as I can to try and persuade then to not litter
3. Put up a couple of signs saying use bins or don't litter

Winter Learning Journey

For this winter learning journey activity, I have to watch three videos of the All Blacks doing the haka and rate them from 1 (The best) to 3 (The worst).
