Fitness Watch Advice

Walt: think critically about what we read.

This week our literacy class did something quiet different. We had to create an advice presentation helping those who find it hard to choose over a Garmin or a Fit bit or does not know anything about it.

Trade And Enterprise

Walt: add one main idea per paragraph

This term we are learning about Trade and Enterprise. Trade and enterprise is about creating and selling products. We have been split into 6 different business groups to learn about what it takes to be a businessman or women.

As part of our topic we had a trade fair. A trade fair is similar to a market but in a trade fair you order things and you get given the product later on. Sometimes in a trade fair only a few things are sold straight away like a market.

At school all our maths books looked the same so me and my friends decided to take orders for math book covers. Unfortunately in the trade fair we only had 7 customers. The cost of our product was 2pt and 50pcs.

Our teachers have created a new kind of currency for us. Current is another way of saying money. Our currency is called PTs and Pieces. There are four toucans that are green, blue, white and red. The green toucan is 2pt, the blue toucan is 1pt, the white toucan is 50pcs and the red toucan is 20pcs. 1pt is worth 2 New Zealand dollars, 2pt is worth 4 New Zealand dollars, 50pcs is worth 1 New Zealand dollar and 20pcs is worth 40 cents. Everyday we come to school we earn 20pcs.

I’m really looking forward to our market day coming up in week 8! I hope to have more customers than I did in the trade fair.

This term we are focusing on adding and subtracting decimals.

Problem Solving

Walt: add and subtract decimals

One of my problems in this presentation I used a different way of solving the problem. I used a table.

If I had a million dollars at the mall

Yeah guess what just happened to me I looked into my school bag and I had 1 million dollars. This would be so fun because I would buy anything I ever wanted and anything for my family, friends and things for poor people. Unfortunately I have to spend it all at the mall in just one day.

One of the shops I would go to is toy world. I wouldn’t go to toy world because of myself I would buy my family and friends things they wanted. For example my youngest sister always wanted a dollhouse with dolls in them and my older sister likes big teddy bears so that's what I would buy.

JB HIFI would be an awesome store to buy things from. At JB HIFI I would buy my big sister a phone and a laptop for school because she broke her old laptop and lost her old phone. Other things I would buy are gifts for cousins like tablets.

At food court I’d buy a meal from every store. First I would give food to people who don’t have any food like people on the streets.  Then I would invite everybody I know and I’d have a big feast to celebrate that day.  

My favorite part of spending it at the mall is spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy sharing with others and buying gifts. I think it would be a good use of money because some of it also was spent on poor people.

Problem solving

Walt: add and subtract decimals

This week my we have still been learning about decimals. We can use many different strategies for solving problems in adding and subtracting decimals. In this presentation one of my stratigies were 0.07 - 0.04 = 0.03 + 0.4 = 0.43 because the question was 0.47 - 0.04.
