We also looked at and made our own optical illusions. Optical Illusions can use color, light and patterns to create images that can be deceptive or misleading to our brains. Check out our illusions in the video below:
Hi my name is Iggy. At school I have a really fun time with my friends I play all sorts of games. IT IS AWESOME!!! I also have a fun at home with my brother Eugene. He can make games before you can say, Davey Jones’ locker. At school I learn SO MUCH!!! I learn SO MUCH because I HAVE A FABULOUS TEACHER!!! I am a music lover too. AND I ABSOLUTELY LOVE SEA CREATURES!!! My favourite animal is A SEAL!!! By Iggy.
I have shown these videos a couple of times to the children, and I really love them. I thought I might share them with parents too. They contain some really great messages – not just for children, but for us too! Kids – if your parents are not checking the blog – you may like to go grab them and get them to come and take look a with you.
Exciting news! I have just had a visit from the Sue Wyatt (our blog “guru”), and she suggested that some of the children who have contributor rights for our blog, might like to have their own blog! Woohoo! This will mean that their blogs are linked to our class blog (listed on the sidebar) and everything they do on this blog would still have to have my approval, or … YOUR approval as parents. The children would get to choose how their blog looks (the background theme) and be able to add pages and widgets to the sidebars. The advantages of doing this through Sue and xpress360 are enormous. It is free and you can add as much content (pictures, etc) as you like. As mentioned previously – everything goes through me, or if you would like to be added as administrators, then you can check and approve their work of a weekend or while on holidays too. I think this is an exciting new adventure for some of our children – it opens up a whole new world and gives them a reason, a real purpose, for writing.
For this to happen, a few things need, to be in place:
Your child needs to be a contributor
Grade 2 contributors all have my approval. If your child is in grade 1, I would like to have a chat with you first
A letter (email) needs to be written to me and then I will forward it to Sue, by your child explaining why they would like to have a blog and the theme they would like for this blog (their travel adventures, books, dinosuars ….)
If you, as a parent, would like administrators rights, then we just need your email address in this letter.
Yesterday we went to the wave pool and it was super exciting. I got totally wiped out! The house we are staying at has a pool and they have a dog called Lizzy and a cat, but we can’t remember the name.
The day before my brothers birthday, we went to Crocodylus Park. We saw HUGE crocodiles and alligators and also lots of other animals. I got to hold a baby saltwater crocodile. On my brother’s birthday we went to Leanyer water park and then we went to the wave pool. I had heaps of fun. I got totally wiped out!!!!
