Rapping with ight

Each week we look at a word family.  We think of as many words as we can with that word family then we write a silly sentence with the words we have thought of.  This week we were looking at ight (ite) and while we were thinking of words Siale asked if he could write a rap instead of a silly sentence.  He worked hard over two days, to write and practice the rap.  Following his example Agnes, Calais, Sifa and Christine also wrote raps using words with the ight/ite sound.  They then used garage band, with the help of Leilani, to record their raps.  Here is the finished product. 

Can you think of any more words with the ight/ite sound?  Leave us a comment and let us know.

Our First Google Doc Expert

Today we were learning how to create a new google doc.  The bears reading group picked it up quickly, so quickly that Miss Kirsty was able to sit back and relax while Demetrius showed the wolves how to create a new doc.  While Demetrius was teaching the wolves he recorded himself using with the screen recorder on the quick time player.  Great work Demetrius!

Zombie Attack

Last Tuesday Kenneth wrote a story about two friends who were attacked by zombies.  The next day he read his story and decided to re-write it to include more detail and descriptive language.  He then used puppet pals and a drawing app on the ipad to publish his story.  Here it is, let us know what you think.

The Netbooks Have Arrived!

On Friday last week Mrs Kelly popped into our classroom with a mysterious black container.  At first we thought it might be filled with shoes or lollies but it was something even better - five new netbooks!  Today we started learning how to sign into google apps and it won't be long before we are google  experts.   

Here is Faith reading a story she wrote about our new netbooks.

Ready for Winter

We were lucky enough to get some warm, dry jackets from KidsCan on Thursday and it was perfect timing as the weather is starting to turn cold and wet.  We even got to go outside and test them in the rain and they were awesome.  Thanks KidsCan.
