As another one of our tasks at extension, we had to reflect on what we had been doing at extension. So here are my Thinker's Keys:
Judy Moody. My new favourite series is about an eleven year old girl named, Judy Moody. She is famous for all her different types of moods, but Judy doesn't approve of this because it's not "Newspaper Worthy" The recent book I have read about Judy is: JUDY MOODY GETS FAMOUS! It's when she tries to get more famous than her nemesis: Jessica Finch. Judy, is in a club for T.P. And no, it doesn't stand for Toilet paper, it stands for Toad Pee. You see, who ever held their mascot Toady, would've felt something warm and wet on their hands. I know. Weird. But I think that Megan McDonald and Peter Reynolds are the perfect combination that created the series of : JUDY MOODY

Hello fellow bloggers! This information below, is my thoughts about Rock Our World 12. R.O.W. is a global project where the extension group gets to participate in making music tracks and video conferencing with peopl efrom around the world. We are now up to round 12. The theme is WOW, which stands for Walk Our World! Please read my writing below and leave a comment about my reflections.Thank you!
What did I do well?
I helped film the shoe advertisement that represented our school on Family Night (Day)
I turned up on the actual day of the video conference
How can I improve in what I did?
I could've helped some other people if they got stuck on anything.
What held you back from doing better?
Someone in my group was playing around and not paying any attention.
No one was listening.
They let me do most of the work
List Down Some Solutions
-I could've ignored them or dealed with them myself
-I could've asked them which job they wanted to do
-I could've talked to my teacher about it
What is the purpose behind us doing ROW?
-We get to make many unexpected connections from people around the world
-We all participate in making a music track and send them around the world and other people add their own tracks of instruments
-We all learn about many inspirational things
-D'Wayne Edwards had some very interesting and useful things:
1. Believe in yourself
2. Find a mentor
Hello dear readers! This short movie above, is about a group of soldiers in East Timor. They are called Blue Patrol. My reading group (Moreporks) have been reading an information book all about these soldiers. Did you know, that Blue Patrols soldiers can play soccer and video games, while still guarding? I just found this out after reading this book! There is another team of soldiers that are called "Green Patrol". This the group that guards day and night sitting the dried up bush. They are not allowed any light source or heavy eating. Watch this movie and see how Blue Patrols spend their free time.
Please leave a comment and tell me what you didn't know before!
Here are the rest of my reading group;s blogs : Joshua, Matthew T , Selena H, Ala and Mubasshira.
