WALT show fractions using geoboards.
I used the 'rubber bands' to stretch around half of the board. Then I wrote the fraction next to it as well.
I learned to use a geoboard because I had not done that before. It was hard because I kept forgetting to click and drag. It was easy because I am very good at equivalent fractions.
I used this link to help me work it out. I think this app will be really helpful for all students in my class to help them show their working on their computer.
Please check out my video and then the link. Let me know which of the apps you think is the coolest.

We found a new cool way to brainstorm collaboratively.
It's called coggle. You don't need to join up or pay for anything and it makes it easy to add your ideas to other people's. we used it for the first time today to see if it was going to be easy. It took us about 20 seconds to work out how to use it. Then it made our ideas come out faster because we didn't need to wait for Sally to write everything.
You can find Coggle on the internet and it's pretty easy to use. Give it a go!

We are learning about Forces in Room 11.
We starting by using a paper aeroplane to think about forces then we read a lot about the different types of forces there are. Lastly, we wrote about what we have learned.
I learned a lot about how friction works. I didn't know anything about forces being balanced before either, now I know that if forces are balanced than there is no motion.
This video helped me learn about balance.
Please leave me a comment below to help me continue my learning.

Well, my holidays were great. I went to Mahunrangi Bay and had my brother visit from Australia. We had a great time. Now I am back at school and working hard to get ready for the year. I had some awesome help yesterday from some people who learned how to play the 'Game of Awesome'. Novarhn says "It was easy to learn."
I am really looking forward to seeing my new Room 11 whanau and getting stuck into some new learning.
See you on Tuesday! :)
