My Discovery- #2

Last Friday we tried to make pasta. It was a complete and utter failure. Unfortunately, we had to many eggs and not enough flour. That problem caused the dough to be wet and eggy and yellow. We will probably try again at someone's house another time in the weekend.

My Discovery

For My Discovery, Emma, Poppy, Jessica and I have decided to make foods from different countries. Lately we made Mango Lassi which is from India, it tastes a lot like a mango shake. It was successful and we loved it lots. We look forward to making it again. Especially Poppy. Ha ha.

Reading Prove It

How to achieve my current reading goal;

Firstly you will get the sheet below (obviously not filled out).
You read your text. 

The first question is what is the style of writing (descriptive, historic, formal, poetic). You decide on which style the text is. Next you think if the style stays the same throughout the text, if so write yes.

The next question is what is the author's purpose? (Persuade, inform, entertain...)
You then decide on that and repeat the step above.

You then complete the last question, What is the word choice in this text? (High frequency words, precise, technical). Repeat first step.

Then complete the Overall... Because... Because...

This will most likely lead to going to University/ Polytech for a qualification in either Graphic Design, Media Arts or Visual Communication. A qualification in any of these subjects is definitely required for a career in Graphic Design. Having already had some experience and knowledge in this from High School Education, you will most likely find it easier; Going into tertiary prepares you for a future job/ career in Graphic Design.

My goal is punctuation, I have used it in my paragraph whn I put in a semi colon.

Goal Reflection

At the start of the year we decided on three goals that we needed to try and achieve. My goals were;

- Make new friends- I have done well at this goal because I have made 3 new friends.

- To get a leadership badge- I am not doing very well at this one because I always forget to post about my leadership roles.

Peer Mediation

Last Friday I had Peer Mediation. I arrived on time with the other people I do it with. We couldn't use an iPad so we just used a pad of paper. Luckily, we had no problems but we walked all around the field and did the full twenty minutes.

Even though I wanted to play basketball, I knew I had to go and do my leadership role. :)

Warm weather, blazing hot sun.
Ice cream melting down our hands, creamy goodness in our mouths.
Cool ocean, refreshing, rejuvenating. The deep aqua waves sloshing up and down the golden beach, look as if they are hypnotising someone.
Days last forever and nights are just a blink.
Summer passes in a breeze, and the excitement and fun fades away into just a pleasant memory.

The language features I have used are;

- Similie
- Hyperbole
- Alliteration

I have used them because;

Similie- to compare/ make something sound like what it's not. To add some cool effect.
Hyperbole- To exaggerate. Make it more interesting.
Alliteration- To make it sound cool.
