Show Don't Tell

I will begin by describing what the characters body felt like.
I will describe what they were thinking
I will leave the audience hanging

He started to shake, his legs started to wobble, his heart sank into his shoes, his hands were like stone. He started to quiver, he could imagine what would happen when they found out……  

There was something wrong with his face, his cheeks were rosy red and his mouth was wide. He was just imagining what he would receive when he won …..

Can you tell what emotion I've used in my writing?

We had to change this sentence into showing not telling. She was happy and excited when she went for a swim on the hot sunny day with her best friend.

Heart pounding, feet burning, rash appearing and a smile on her face. She did secret handshake with a girl from school. Their feet sank into tiny grains of sand just thinking if it was quick sand. They smashed into the waves sliding up the soft golden sand. The brightness got stronger, some sort of water forming on her face, no white in the sky just blue. They wondered if there would be white in the sky...

Active listening

Active listening is hearing the sounds all around you and the person who is talking so really you’re paying attention to someone.

To me active listening means focusing on the person who is talking and all the stuff that is making sounds. 

To be a better active listener I will have to concentrate on the person who is talking and carefully understand what they’re saying.

5 Minute Addition Frenzy

WALT: Increase our basic fact recall speed.   
In class Mr V gave us a Five minute addition frenzy worksheet then we had to make a chart of how we done I had to do the time on mine because I done all 100 questions under 5 minutes and my line will go down because I'm trying to get less time. Have you got less time on yours ?
On my first try I got 4.48 seconds and on my second try I got 37 seconds less.

The first number is the minute and second number is the seconds.

Here's my one that I got under three minutes. :D
And i'm really proud of it and Mr V said he's going to challenge the people that are on minutes hope one of use can beat him.

This my Term 3 Five Minute Frenzy. My time went up because I had a little bit of a headache.  So next time I'll be faster.

This time I went higher and it was way better because I could concentrate and I was calm. And next time will do even better.

The Frost

             The Frost

When I opened my door I felt super cold and when I looked at the grass it was all frosted it looked like it had snowed overnight and when I stepped over it it felt like spikes were poking into my shoes. Then me and my brother walked to school as soon as I hung up my bag I ran to the backfield Kiana, Hone, Jazzinda and her sisters. Me and Kiana dared Hone to do a snow angel in the frost. After a while I did one it felt super freezing after I did it. The frost is very cool and want to do it again.

For Writing my class had to write a story about the frost. I think I was good at the describing the frost. But next time I think I could add more adjectives.
