Calendar Art - T3 2016

This term we have been making art. It is called Drunkards Path. At first we saw a picture on the internet and thought it would be cool to make our own. We made some patterned papers and then we cut them out and stuck them together. I decided that I wanted to make lots of circles for my art, but there were other choices too - see Here and Here to see some other types.
Here is a pic of my Art.

Feedback: I think you did really well with explaining what you did to create this its really inspiring. 
Feedforward: How could you upgrade this? / Improve it? Charlotte P

Evaluation: I think I did really well at making my patterns contrast in the end product, next time I could try a different type of Drunkards Path.

Friday Challenge

Suzanne's nephew is going on a long flight to the UK.  He loves animals.  On the plane, he needs something that he can play with and keep him occupied in a small space.  The pieces have to be able to be stored flat in a snaplock bag that can go in his pocket.  

3 possibilities to prototype are:
  1. Animal puzzle
  2. Animal dice net
  3. Animal shapes

I have chosen Prototype #1   because: I think that Suzanne's nephew will like it.

My first prototype: (This needs to be detailed enough so that someone else can make it)

Tester 1's Feedback and Recommendations:
I really liked: the crocodile
A recommendation I have is: more legs. Caitlin
Based on my tester's feedback, the changes I want to make are: More legs

My second prototype: (This needs to be detailed enough so that someone else can make it)

Tester 2's Feedback and Recommendations: I really like how you did a crocodile.
Next time you could make it look more like one. Charlotte P

E T Reo Portfolio Post

In E T Reo we have been learning a whakatauki. A whakatauki is a proverb, or a quote, usually very motivational or inspirational. This is the whakatauki we learnt.

He aha te mea nui o te ao? He tangata, he tangata, he tangata.
What is the most important thing in the world? The people, the people, the people.

To go with this whakatauki we did some art of people. Here is the end product.

Feedback: It's good that you learned what a proverb is.
Feedforward: I don't have any feedforward.

Evaluation:Overall I think I did well at this. I think that I was good at remembering it in Maori and English. I also learnt what a proverb is.

Writing Sample - Sentences

In writing I have been focusing on sentences. I have been learning to use different types of sentences to make my writing more interesting. Here is a Slide that I made with different sentence types in it.

Feedback: I like how you had a wide range of adverbial phrases to add to your complex sentences.
Feedforward: Next time you could have more simple sentences.
Rosie ;p

Evaluation: I agree with Rosie, Next time I could have more simple sentences, maybe a wider range as well.
