This is all about room 5 and our strengths!

Today we did an encouragement activity and we had to put strengths about each other on our names. This made us feel strong and confident about who we are and what we look like to our friends. I was surprised people thought I was good at reading. It makes me feel better about that. I had lots of kind ones (Leah) Someone called me smart. I was shocked because I only thought I was sort of smart. (Piringi) This game is cool and we recommend it to other classes!

Today Room 5 learnt some more about adverbs and how to put them in different parts of the sentence. You can put them in the beginning, in the middle and at the end to change the structure of your sentences. This makes the writing more interesting to read.

This is a link to our activity.

Room 5 learnt about how to improve sentence structure in writing this week. They learnt how using adverbs in different places in the sentence can make their paragraph more interesting and it can also tell the reader more information about what is happening. An adverb is how something is done. eg. Running quickly or swarming aggressively.

Adverbs are cool and make our writing better!

Here are great examples. Click on the link to follow.
