Title: Horton Hatches The Egg
Author: Dr.Seuss
Illustrator:  Dr.Seuss

What I Liked Best: I liked the riming in the story, I think it makes the book more exciting and interesting, because when a word a word comes you’ll be wondering what is he going to rime this word with.     
Storyline: It’s about named a elephant named Horton and a bird named Mayzie.  Mayzie has an egg she has to look after but she is very lazy, so she asked Horton.  Mayzie flew off to have fun.  Hunters come and shoot horton so then he falls asleep.   A few days later he ends up in the circus, Mayzie flies in and finds out her egg is hatching, crack, crack, crack, and outcomes an elephant-bird.

What I Didn’t Like: I loved every bit.  
What Is My Favourite character: Mayzie because I can relate to her, I would hate to sit on that egg all day while my friends are having fun.  
Would I Recommend This Book: I would recommend this book to people who like poetry, learning new words and people who like reading in general.

Olympic Artwork

In term three we were working on a piece for the Olympics, this piece has many different subjects like maths, writing, art and our heads on our chosen athlete.   

For the maths we did a tessellation (a tessellation is a repeated pattern that has no gaps or overlaps).  For the tessellation we used a 3.8 triangle, as you can see I made hexagons and squares out of just using that single polygon (shape).  

We also wrote the three Olympic values respect, excellence and friendship, we chose to put these on our poster because they were related to the Olympics, and without these there will be huge fights during the game.    

We did different similes (a simile is a comparison using like or as), and metaphors (a metaphor is a direct comparison not using like or as)  in the speech bubbles and thought clouds. Can you guess which one is which?

The paper we used was slightly smaller than A3, we cut off about 4cm.  We had to use specific vocabulary that you would normally hear or see in the Olympics.

I enjoyed collaborating with other people and sharing ideas.  Now this piece is laminated and hanging above Room 10’s tables
