Expressive Writing

This is a couple of my writing's that I have written during the week.

***

Life & Death 
If it came to a question to choose between LIFE & DEATH, what would you choose.?
The thing is that there are both pro's and con's to both choices. But the tricky thing is that which one's are most reasonable.

RACISM
In this world there is nothing but people being negative to one another in many ways.

People are thinking that it's okay to be racist, and call out individuals and call them black or even N***er. People nowa days are thinking that the looks are all that matters, and that it's okay to judge a person by their race or their skin colour. But it really aint.

Reading Activity

This Is my Reading work :)
***
LEARN : We are learning to ask open ended questions or Thick questions about the text we read.
***
RETELLING :
Its about this little girl and her calf who is named Polly, they have been friends for a very long time. And the little girl has to fight to keep polly alive and stop her dad from putting the calf down. She succeeds but not for long.
***
Purpose - Can retell the main idea.
                -  To infer - what does the author want the reader to understand.
   - finding evidence to support our inference.

***

WHAT DOES THE AUTHOR WANT THE READER TO UNDERSTAND :

I believe that the author wants us to stick up for what we truly believe in. LIke for an example, in the story the little girl fought for her little calf because she believed in Polly.  


***
QUESTIONS :

  1. What kind of cow was Polly/ What breed ?
  2. What kind of school did the little girl go to ?
  3. Where is the school located ?


I am confident that with the learn and the activities that I have completed that I understand my learn.

Multiplication

This is my working out on Multiplication Problems.

***

- There are 3 eggs in each box, how many eggs are in 2 boxes ?
There are 3 eggs in 1 box. So for 2 boxes there are 6 eggs altogether.

- Each bottle cap cost $2.00. How much does it cost for 6 bottle caps?
2 x 6 = 12. so for 6 bottle caps it is $12.00 altogether.

- Each child has 3 oranges, if there are 4 children. How many oranges are there altogether ?
3 x 4 = 12, so there are 12 oranges altogether.

- Each banana cost $5.00, How much does it cost for 4 banana’s ?
5 x 4 = 20, so altogether it is $20.00 for 4 banana’s.

- Each ticket cost $9.00, How much would it cost for 4 tickets ?
9 x 4 = 36, so for 4 tickets it is $36.00 altogether

My Understanding of Fractions

This is my understanding of what a fraction is

***

What I understand about Fractions :
I understand that a fraction is a part of a whole, that there are two parts to it. The numerator and the denominator.  The numerator is the amount or parts/groups you take away, and the denominator is the amount of groups you divide or share it into.
THREE MAIN WORDS :
Share
Whole

Take Away

Spanish

This week I have been learning about the Spanish Language. 
I am to be confident in learning 
a language that I am not use to.
***

This is just a couple of catch phrases and greetings in Spanish :

Good Morning - Buenos Días
Good Afternoon - Buenos Tardes
Good Evening - Buenos Noches
***
My Family : Mi Familia
My Mother : Mi Madre
My Dad : Mi Padre
My Brother : Mi Hermano
My Sister : Mi Hermana
***
How are you ? : Como Estas ?
How has your morning been ? Como ha sido tu manana ?

Fractions

This afternoon, I was focusing on what a fraction was.  
I am quite happy with the amount of things I had learnt.
***
This is a snapshot of what I had learnt.

Expressive Writing - A World Full of Negativity

A World full of Negativity
***
My Learn was to use : Specific and interesting vocabulary
To make sense of my writing and use the punctuation correctly and consistently.

- I have underlined all the specific and interesting vocabulary used in my writing.
***
In this world there is nothing but people being negative and nasty towards one another.


People are thinking that it's okay to be racist and mean and also having so much hatred towards each other. They think it's okay to call out individuals and call them black or even N*****. But really it ain't.


People are judging each other by their appearance and not for who they are inside.


In other words this may be labelled as bullying, and us as victims of bullying and human stereotypes are scared of standing up to the bullies because we're terrified of what they may say.


There isn't a day gone by where people aren't being teased or mocked because they aren't at national standards or even good at anything. They may not say it in those exact words but the message gets through pretty strong.


People who bully most probably find it amusing and entertaining, that's why they do it. They take it as a good laugh, even though it's doing nothing but embarrassing the hell out of someone.


I strongly believe that bullies are nothing but hopeless attention seekers.  They find bullying cool and swag as kids these days say.


I am speaking for us victims of bullying, who have no idea on how to deal with it.  Nowa days bullying has driven people to self harm and suicide.  Bullying has gone extreme, it's slowly persuading people to believe that they aren't good enough in anything what so ever.


I strongly wish the one day, bullying will just fade away and not come back.  In this world bullying is a serious matter and is not needed.


People these days think that the looks are all that matter, and that their looks tell their story. But really it doesn't.


Like for an example the people being labelled as black or Negroes don't have the looks, but have the brains as well as extraordinary talents.


And us as P.I students and people are being labelled as the low achievers,  the big question is that "Is it because we are brown? that we can't be high achievers?" That shouldn't be that case.  Because we should never let the colour of our skin define who we are or who we want to become.


But the thing is, bullies are controlling majority of us. That's why we're scared to do most of the things we want to do. We're even scared to answer one little question during class because we don't wanna be laughed at for getting it wrong, I guess it's just how they grew up. But that still doesn't give them the right to treat us differently.


So to sum up..... bullying is just another way of getting people's attention, and bring them down and  is not needed in this world and I am basically writing this to let people know how us as victims feel about all this.  It needs to be stopped, once bullying has slightly faded away this world will be full of loving and caring people.  And that's just what this world needs.
