My Netbook Reflection!

1st writing:

Having my own netbook has really helped me in my learning and work. It has also helped me finish my work faster and in time. Ever since I got my own netbook it changed everything and everything was easier to do. My netbook has also helped at home because I can finish my unfinished work. But it sucks because I only take my netbook home on week days and weekends but not holidays.

Well our school doesn't need to use books any more because we have our own netbooks. Remembering the pain from writing in our books makes me feel glad that we now have a netbook of our own. These netbooks really changed my life and school life especially at home when I’m bored and then I remember that I have my netbook at home so then I go grab it and finish some school work off!

My work has really improved from last year I actually enjoy doing my work alot now!! I really enjoy having my own netbook! I always visit sites that I haven't visited and I sites that I've always wanted to visit and I always keep in contact with my friends at home by going on school gmail and chatting to them.

2nd writing: (Improving)

I have discovered how to use a lot of apps online and I’ve learnt how to post a presentation on my blog all by myself. Having a netbook connected to the internet helped my learning a lot this year. I've learnt heaps on line because we have been researching a lot of stuff on line like we've been researching about Nelson Mandela a lot and I have learnt a lot more about Nelson Mandela then I knew before! I've also researched about MLK (Martin Luther King) and we've been researching different kind of art works for our creative strand this year! On my netbook I have used different math's siteslike xtra maths and maths whizz and it's actually better and it helps me with my maths!

I have learnt a really special thing this year from my teacher and that is how she taught me how look after my netbook properly and carefully and she also tells me to put my netbook in the cupboard before someone just comes and stands on it or something might happen to it! I have learnt how to work apps and do heaps of stuff all by myself online.

Well if I get lost on something and I need help I always think of going to my teacher but then I’m always with my friends and then I just ask them for help and I learn alot of stuff from my friends. I’ve also learnt alot from my dad because he always encourage’s me in doing my work at home and he also taught me how to improve on my work!

I have helped heaps of kids with posting stuff and heaps of other stuff! My key competencies has really grown through using different kind of digital tools.

Christmas Story!

Christmas is nearly here and I’m really excited. At church we always celebrate christmas by getting a money from our savings at church and we always sing christmas songs. My mum and my cousin and I put up our christmas tree and decorated it with different kind of christmas decorations. At our church we also are going to perform a play to show that christmas was the day that Jesus Christ was born! But in our play I am one of the animals. Every christmas my family and I always gather up together at my cousins house and we always do secret santa.

There was this one christmas I think 2 years ago and we went to church to celebrate christmas and our minister of our church calls out our name and then we go get a envelope with money in it. When I went up to get my envelope from our minister and after the whole celebration was done there was a lollie scramble but I was just too excited to see how much money I got. So I quickly opened my envelope and then I counted all of it up and I got $325 because my parents savings goes towards christmas and it comes to ME! I was so happy but my mum told me to give it to her so I only took $20 dollars and gave the rest to her.

R.I.P Paul Walker :(

Hearing the terrible and sad news that Paul Walker died I couldn’t even hold my tears. I thought of all the really great acting he has done and now that he’s gone who would replace him? I was just so curious to know how did he die and why has he gone too soon. I actually hate to hear that he died from a car crash because the whole car burnt down and how would he feel right now? He was like the coolest actor to me and he really made the movie fast and furious more cooler to watch and more famous.

Paul Walker was a great gentlemen. He was always smiling and his acting was really impressive. He changed the world in the movie fast and furious. He is a really humble guy and was so catching to watch! His quote is one of the best quotes, this is his quote “If one day speed kills me, do not cry because I was smiling.” This quote made me feel really happy and sad at the same time. It made me happy because he’s in a really better place now and it made me sad because I just can’t believe he’s gone!

All these years, hearing his name was actually the best thing ever, but then hearing that he had passed was kinda like someone in my family passing away. I was actually really shocked because I found out he had passed 3 days after he died. It was heart breaking to hear this and it’s like he’s still here. I am also happy because he’s in gods hands now and probably looking down from heaven protecting there fast and furious crew and his family!
