Today the dolphin group went to swimming.first  We sat and did kicking on the pool of the edge.  I fell into the pool. I got a fright.  Next we did starfish floating on our backs. We did the rocket ship and for the rocket ship you have to glide. We had a race to the other side of the pool. We had a while to play. Ashra and I played mermaids. Soon we got out of the pool because it was cold. My hands felt like ice blocks.  I liked the race because it was fun and exciting.

Learning About Adjectives

I was learning to add adjectives to give my sentences more meaning.
I have to remember to use adjectives that make the picture clear for my reader.
I thought this activity was hard because it was hard to think of the words.
My best adjective was indinreingnes because those are my birds.

My next step is to use adjectives in my own stories to make them interesting.

I have been learning to recognise and understand prefixes. I know now that when a prefix like 'un' is added to the beginning of word ti changes the meaning. This can help me understand what  words mean.  This was new learning for me and I found it easy to understand. My next step is to learn different prefixes.

Autumn cinquain

We were learning how to write a cinquain poem.  We wrote poems to describe Autumn Leaves.  I liked writing ht poem because it was really interesting.  One part that was hard was writing it because I didn't really know which on to do first - to do it on the computer or on the book first.  I couldn't do it at the same time.  My favourite part of my poem is how I got it done and how I chose what to write.
