​“Hooray” we are going to taūpo for some of the winter but i will be back before my birthday.on the way to the campsite my brother got car sick and spewed, but luckily the window was open and he spewed out the the window. but he got a little bit of spew on himself.(he said “it felt warm”.)but before this incident the the spew went straight out on the road and a car on the opposite side went right thro​ugh it SPLATTER!!!the car and beeped his horn really loudly.on the way threw the country my mum had the car window open and this massive truck came past and splashed water from An enormous puddle through the window and my mum got all wet and had to wear her blue and green tog’s. then we got to taūpo, my mum didn't see the speed bump and we went over it going 50 k’s per hour. our head almost hit the roof. when we got there it was all almost night time and i saw a dead tree that looked like an un dead hand stretching over to garb us I almost screamed when I saw it out of the conner of my eye. finally we got to our destination. it took half an hour to un pack. I thought "this better be a good holiday".

ü Image matches the question

Reflection Questions

I followed the Get it, Sort it, Use it inquiry process by: getting the information sorting it into groups and using it.

My next step when I use the Get it, Sort it, Use it inquiry process is: to get more and use more.

The fun part of the Get it, Sort it, Use it inquiry process was: using it.
You have thought about your learning and used your reading strategies to help as you read to make meaning and grow your understanding and knowledge. You and your group worked to create a kahoot and we had fun using them in class to check our understanding about the Commonwealth Games.

Remember when reflecting and thinking about your learning to add more details and go a little deeper, adding a 'because' to your ideas might help. Reflecting about your learning helps you to grow as a learner, to think about what was tricky and to set goals.
