Project Based Learning (PBL)

Hey guys welcome back to the blog. Today I am sharing my PBL. My project was to do with history. I did a slide about history. It had lots of information but I couldn't finish the whole project. I loved PBL time because we got to research about the Olympics and it was really fun. I was in Mrs Carr's PBL group. It was also tricky but fun!

Project Topic: History

Photo/Screenshot of Project (insert below) 2 screenshots of my slide.

Finish these starters:
  • Something I enjoyed about my project was  researching  because it was fun learning new things.

  • The most challenging thing about my project was finding the right site to find the information because lots of them had different things.

  • The main skill I got better at was getting faster at finding the information I got better at it by working hard on it and getting absorbed into the task.

  • Something interesting I learnt was that the ancient Olympics ended because someone took over.                        

  • What I would most like to change about my project is that I could make a model of something because lots did a model and it looked awesome!

  • I would like to do my next PBL about is probably about fencing because I don’t know anything about it and it might be fun to learn about.

Choose three learning muscles and explain how you used them during your PBL.

  1. Managing Distractions- I used this muscle by making sure that I don’t get distracted by others around me making noises.
  2. Imitation- By going around to see how people were going and how they were going to present it so it gave me ideas.
  3. Perseverance- Because I struggled and I just kept trying harder to do as much as I can. Even though I didn’t finish I tried hard.

Create a Description of Your Project
This needs to have either video or audio. You can use any app you like. Include a link here. You will embed it as part of your Reflection PBL Blog Post.

So there is my PBL Reflection. Now here is my real PBL.

Thanks for looking at my blogpost. I hope you enjoyed it. Please leave a comment.

Calendar Art

Kia Ora and welcome back to the blog. Today I am sharing my calendar art. I put a lot of effort into it. We had to pick out of three options. I picked Mrs Love's art (which was Mrs Hinde at time because Mrs Love is sick) and it was a animal print as the background and black silhouette on top of the prints. It was challenging picking the animal because I wanted to do something that not everyone else is doing. In the end I ended up picking a Dog.

Wow! Introducing the one and only art by Ruby. Just take a moment to look at this spectacular piece of art. If you want a closer look come down to Parkvale School on Thursday 15th of September. As you can see lots of effort went into this art and it is amazing. If you are a dog lover this is the right art for you. I am sure if you don't like dogs you will still love it. The paws are blended because the bottom of the paw is darkly coloured in and the top is lightly coloured in. There is no art like it! It is a really cheap deal and everyone will love this art. You can show it off  on your wall by buying a calendar or any of the other options. The prices are down below.

Calendars $10
Diary's $15
Cards $12
Notepads $12

Buy one of your child's art. All things on offer to buy is very useful. 

Hopefully you have thought about buying this art. 
Thanks for taking you time to check this post out,
Your blogger Ruby.

Colour poem

Hey guys welcome back to the blog. Today I am sharing my colour poem. A colour poem is a piece of writing that describes one colour but six totally different subjects. For my colour poem I have done the colour blue. I had fun writing it and it was also a bit tricky. My favourite line is 'A intense blue eye staring carefully at the rugby match'. I hope you like my post and poem.

Colour Poem

WALT to use descriptive language to help create an image (picture) in our reader's head

Success Criteria
  • Use adjectives to describe the noun
  • Use adverbs to describe the verb (describe how the action is happening)
  • Use a range of verbs to explain what is happening
  • Use a range of nouns that help us identify with a colour

Blue is the colour of…
  • Juicy blueberries squirting on my face
  • The Cookie Monster quickly sneaking into the cookie jar and gobbling them all up
  • An intense blue eye just staring carefully at the rugby match
  • Kids playing in the fresh swimming pool splashing purposely to their friends
  • Sadness from Inside Out touching the memory balls and turning them into sad memories accidentally
  • Dory swimming around the ocean free and happy while finding her way home
