Coralee Game Review

WALT: I am learning to critically evaluate a game

Your name:Coralee

I played the game:Monopoly
Made by:Charles Darrow
I played this game with:angel,Coralee,

The purpose of this game is to (Hint: how do you win this game?): always land on the chance card and the community cards and try to land on the free parking then you get all the money

My favourite thing about this game was: talking people money

One thing I didn’t like about this game was: that some people cheat

This game is good to play by with a friend because:with a friends because if there were a lot of people then other people will not get as much money as the other player

I would rate this game 9 out of 10 because:

If I could recommend something to make this game better, it would be: having more money because on some card it say get 10 dollar but there is not 10 dollar in the game

Add any other comments about this game here: power in the game like speed if some lands on speed they it to run as fast for 10 seconds

Recount Spelling test

Monday 20TH Feb 2017

Today room 7 is doing a spelling test as miss ashley call out the words we need to was easy at first then it got hard. I saw some of the class try to spell a word but they couldn't spell but i like that they keeped try even i could spell a word but i keeped try too...

Some people in my class think it boring and one of those people is me but then i something top up in my brain that when we do spelling test it make us learn new and  wonderful words  that we know to this day. So that why spelling is imported because if we didn’t know how to spell that mean you can write story or even you might not know how to read probably that why reading is imported.

It was hard for me to spell 100 word because i can get scared and people might look at my work and tell me that the  word is wrong and 1 of them is right but i know they are lying because they had not seen  my test and i know i'm doing good in reading writing and math

If there is writing in red, it is instructions that tell you what to do. Before publishing your work on your blog, remove the red writing.
If the writing is in black, it is part of the activity, but something the teacher has written. Just leave it.
If you start writing, and it is blue like this, I have done that so it is easy to tell what the teacher has written (in black) and what you have written (in blue). Only write in blue if I ask you to.

Quote from story
Your response - how does she feel? Why do you think that?
“I swallow my groan” (page 2)
She feels bored and hot. I think that because people normally groan when they don’t like what is happening, so maybe she was bored in class and didn’t want to do what the teacher asked. The drought meant that the weather would be really hot.
“I flop across my desk like a dead fish” (page 2)
She feels sweating and is thirsty I think she move or fall of her desk
“Since Mum died, I’ve been staying over at Pete’s house until Dad gets home from work” (page 3)
I think she feels depressed and alone staying over at pete’s house without her Mum and Dad will be scared.
“We roar and scream like a crowd at a rugby match when someone scores a try” (page 4)
I think she scream because she might had sunburn on her left arm because it’s so suning
“I wait for him to tell me to dig deep. I wait for him to tell me to use my imagination - but I guess it was Mum who said things like that.” (page 5)
I think that she feel Desperate but also at the same time she feels sad because she still thinking about her Mum of how she passed away because it say on page 5

“If she digs deep she would find her emotion for her mother.
“Dad still hasn’t eaten anything, and there are big black bags under his eyes” (page 5)
I think he is depressed and alone about mum passing away. He has not eaten anything because he is full up with sadness also he has not sleep in forever.
“I pick up my pen and, trying not to think of Dad asleep at the table, or Mum dying, or the skinny sheep, I close my eyes” (page 6)
I think now she is feeling calm and relaxed and her mind is washed from thinking about mum dying or dad not sleeping or about the skinny sheeps.

Reread this quote from page 6. Reflect on what hidden meaning is there.

“This time the story comes, but the drought in the story is dad’s. Like the ever-blue sky, he’s holding back tears. From time to time, a small cloud drifts by, but he blinks it away. Each time he does this, his sadness grows deeper. All he does is get up and go to work and come home and go to bed. Then one night, he falls into such a deep sleep, a cloud creeps by without him noticing. Then another comes, and another, and another. Fat white clouds at first, then grey ones, then black - and the blackest clouds are bursting with rain. The moment they burst, Dad cries.” (page 6)

Think about the questions below and write a paragraph (at least 100 words) to answer these questions. You can talk to a buddy about it, but use your own words.
  • Why is dad holding back tears?
  • Why does he blink away the clouds?
  • Why is his sadness growing deeper?
  • What metaphor is the girl trying to explain by talking about the clouds?
  • Why might the clouds start off white, then next go grey, then next go black? What metaphor is the girl trying to explain?
