Ghost Maths


Walt: Use a calculator accurately

I was able to go on to the rebel sport website and find some things to use to ad up to $2000 with a calculator.

Next time I can have less money and I can add it up without a calculator to make it harder.

My Speech



Walt : deliberately choose words to create an effect on the audience

I was able to write a speech with a lot of persuasive words to make my speech have a larger effect on the audience.

My next step is to put more persuasive words in all of my writing not just my speeches.

Ghost



Walt: make a prediction based on  the cover and blurb of Ghost by Jason Reynolds.

Learning Reflection 

I was able to look at the cover and pictures with the runner to make a prediction about why I think this story is about a boy and what he gets up to running and what I think the story will be about.  I was also able to read the blurb and make a new prediction on what I think the story is about. 

Next time I will look for more detail to make my prediction more justified.

Dance

Walt: Understand that people celebrate in different ways.
We had to find a group and make a acrostic poem spelling out dance.
It was hard to find the dances because it had to be a dance people celebrate with.
