A Cure For Annie McTavish

This week Room 2 children were reading "A Rumble and a Grumble" by Jo Windsor.
Annie had a problem. Every night when she closed her eyes to go to sleep there was... a rumble and a grumble and a rattle and a roar, and Angus McTavish began to snore.
Annie tried and she tried to find a cure and when she finally did... guess what happened? She went to sleep and she started to snore.
Here are some ideas the orange writing group had for a cure.

Everyone was writing about our responsibilities at the picnic.

New chicks by Bridie

Today in room 2 there were 10 little, cute chicks. They are gold and have little yellow stripes on their backs. The 10 chicks jump and peck at each other. They need to have water and food and warmth. I think it was a good idea to get chicks.

Writing on iPads and iPods

We have been writing our stories on the notepad app. When we are finished we email them to each other and to our class computers so we can share our writing.
We hope you enjoy these stories.
Our Sleepover by Anatia
On the weekend me and Te Manu went to Nicky's house.
We went to the beach and had a swim.
On Sunday we went back to Bea and Dave's house.
While Bea was in hospital getting her operation me and Ella gave her some flowers. When we went swimming Bren forgot to bring the clothes and the towels.

Eel by Reuben
Once upon a time there was an eel. He was lonely. He went to a big fish.
"Are you scared of me?"
"No, I am not scared of you," said the fish.
Then they were friends and the eel was not lonely any more.

The Weekend by Cody
This weekend I am going to the beach. We are going to have a swim. We are going there because it will be a hot day. We are going to have a picnic.

Christmas by Bridie
I can not wait until Christmas because all my family is coming to my house. On New Years I am going to Kawau.
Last year I got a Barbie doll and a skipping rope from Santa.
I wish for another zhu zhu pet. I have a zhu zhu pet and it is called Roxie. Roxie is a cool toy hamster.
I love Christmas.
It is the 1st of December so it is 24 days until Christmas.

Today I brought some coloured stones into school for news. Santana

Monster Energy

I like the way Thomas has used different sentence beginnings in this story.
Can you spot the one that shows time has passed?

Arleigha's Birthday

Arleigha enjoyed writing about her special day.
We lit a candle and sang Happy Birthday. We did three cheers and 7 claps plus one for luck and we wrote our names on a birthday card for her. There was a special birthday balloon for her to take home.
That is what we do for everyone in Room 2 when they have a birthday.

Abby's Halloween

In this story, Abby forgot about telling who, when and where in her introduction. See how much better her story became when she added the details, so we knew there were lots of people at an exciting event.
