Awesome Reading in Anawhata


On Monday 26 April my group(Whero the red group) all got a book called 'The Volcano Awakes'!
It was a really awesome book because it told us all about Volcanoes. Like when a Volcano erupts - rocks come down at a speed of 60 kilomteres and faster.
Our first activity was green hat and white hat thinking. This is when you write down all the new thing we learn from what we have read and the white hat is when you write down all the new facts you learnt.
Our next activity was to choose 7 new or unusual words and write then down to show we know what the word means.
My third activity was a sheet we had to complete the sheet was called "The Glass Eye" this was easy because what you had to do was there were some sentences with some gaps in the sentences and under the of all the words was a little box with words in it those were all the word that fit into the gaps.
My last activity and most favourite I had to make a model volcano, at first we had to plan it, I was sitting at my desk for a while because I couldn't think of anything but just when I said 'I couldn't think of anything' well I did! So I had finish planning what I had thought of as quick as I could. Then I hop out of my seat and I said 'lests do it!'
First I got a box and one peace of black paper and one big peace of white paper then after that I got the black piece of paper and what I did with It was rolled it up like a big toliet roll then I put it into the little box then I got the white paper and cut It into sort of big peaces of stips then I cellataped the four peace to the top of the paper to the top of the black paper then I stuck the other end of the paper the the bottum of the box. Then after that I painted my volcano black then while It was drying I got some sand from my friend Leija and sprinkled a little sand all over the volcano and I put some little rocks on it as well.
Finally I knew that I was FINISHED.

Ms Davies has been telling me lots about these volcanoes that have been created as part of Reading. It looks great Abby and I like the way that you explained all the tasks you had to complete as well - sounds like you are working hard up in 7teen crew!

That sounds like so much fun. I did a mini model of Ancient Egypt. It was really fun. I hoped Miss Davies would ask you guys to make your volcanoes erupt with vinegar and baking soda... Hey maybe we can do that some other time in reading. But great work that looked like so much of fun. I think it's great that you put some facts in. The main thing is you did a great job and keep up the good work
