How bees make honey

WALT: Find out how bees make honey.

This is my reading response of how bees make honey.  We had to highlight all the words that were nouns, verbs and adjectives.  It was easy to find the nouns.  Some of the descriptive verbs were hard to get, but I think I have done a good job.

WALT: Make a positive comment on a peers blog.

Today I commented on Rangi's blog.  Firstly, I have realised that I need to get my work buddy checked before I post as it doesn't make sense.  I have not started the sentence with a capital letter and all my little 'i' need to be made into a capital 'I'.  Secondly, I forgot to say what it was that I liked about her mahi.  I need to elaborate more.  Also, I needed to suggest a way that she could improve her learning.  I could have asked her a question.  I will remember next time.


WALT:Keep a written journal of our thoughts and feelings.

WALT: Identify what makes an electrical circuit.
Success Criteria:  I will
Explain my thinking.
Create a diagram to support my thinking.

When making an electrical circuit you need a battery, copper wire, a light bulb and a switch to turn it on and off.  If the circuit is closed, the light bulb will glow.  If the circuit is open, the light bulb will turn off.  This is because the energy given by the battery is prevented from making a complete circuit, so the electrons will have no where to go.
Below is a picture of my circuit.

My Speech Critique

Today my class had to present their speeches.  I talked about how bulling should be banned.
I made sure that I did't make mistakes, but I was so busy focusing on reading my words that I forgot to look at my class and make eye contact.

The challenging part was when I had to speak in front of my class. I get so nervous because I feel embarrassed.  Anyway, even more embarrassing is having to post my speech video to my blog for you all to watch.

So, here it is.
