Literacy – Phobia

Today’s reading task was about phobias. Phobia is an anxiety disorder or a fear. We read a text based on a kid trading phobias with a strange man. We answered questions about the story and wrote a time we tried to conquer our fears (my phobia is Entomophobia). I hope you have enjoyed this post. Please leave a positive comment on my blog.

Persuasive Speech – Why Hawaii should be your number 1 travel destination

Task Description: Over the couple four weeks my literacy class (and the other literacy classes) have been learning about persuasive writing/speeches. We first started by making an ad. Soon after that we chose a topic and then made a persuasive speech about it. My topic was “Why Hawaii should be your number 1 travel destination”. My writing is below this task description. Today I shared my speech with my literacy class. I hope you have enjoyed this post. Please leave a positive comment on my blog.

Writing: Do you want to feel the aloha spirit? Come visit Hawaii. Surfing was invented in Hawaii. The people treat tourists kindly and you can really feel the “aloha” spirit. In my essay I will be stating why Hawaii should be your number 1 travel destination. I will also be sharing Hawaii’s amazing food, their lovely culture, and beautiful nature. 

Hawaii has many fresh fruits that I bet you’ve never had. They have freshly squeezed pineapple juice that I definitely recommend, you might have it every meal of the day. Shaved Ice is one of the many things that you should absolutely try. It’s really good for those hot days. Hawaii has a lot more treats than this. One of my personal favourites is the Mauna Loa Chocolate.

They have a wonderful culture. The Luau is a traditional party or feast that everyone always enjoys. They will usually greet you with a lei which is a symbol for love and for warm greetings. They also have very interesting curses and legends that may fascinate you.  

LEGEND/CURSE: Pele is a Hawaiian goddess who controls fire and volcanoes. She curses and punishes thieves. People who steal from her, they take sand, rocks, shells, anything that is natural from Hawaii. She will punish you by making everyday life difficult. 

Hawaii is home to the only tropical rainforest in the United States. Their native flower is the Yellow Hibiscus which you can only find in Hawaii. They have many beaches with a variety of sands that are different colours (white, red, black, and much more). There are volcanoes scattered all over Hawaii and some of them form islands. Mauna Loa known for being less active for over 35 years. 

In conclusion here are my three main reasons why Hawaii should be your number one travel destination or in other words, your number one place to visit. Their amazing food, their lovely culture, and beautiful nature.  Thank you!

HW W5 – Advertisement

For this week’s homework (literacy section) we had to recreate a well know brands advertisement. We also had to include a text or phrase that would persuade people to buy the brand. I decided to do mine on KFC. I’m really happy with how it turned out and it was also fun to recreate. I hope you have enjoyed this post. Please leave a positive comment on my blog.

Literacy – Commonwealth Games

Today’s literacy (home class) task was based on the Commonwealth games. It is a multi-sport event that happens every four years. We read and answered questions about the Commonwealth games. Kiarah and I made an add for the Commonwealth game. I hope you have enjoyed this post. Please leave a positive comment on my blog.

Literacy – Fortnite Debate

Yesterday for literacy we did a debate but we got to choose which one we wanted to do. I chose fortnite, should fortnite be banned? Here is my writing/reasons why fortnite should be banned. I hope you have enjoyed this post. Please leave a positive comment on my blog.

 

  • Fortnite is an additive online game. Kids are addicted and play for many hours. They should do something more productive and focus on something else. 
  • Gaming/Fortnite can cause mental health issues, ADHD, social anxiety, gaming disorder and depression. They should be talking and playing with friends outside in real life instead of talking and playing with strangers online. 
  • It can be dangerous talking with strangers online, especially for children under the age of 12. Kids will be exposed to inappropriate language and things (like images, videos, etc). 
  • Fortnite is gabling in a certain way. Kids use their parent’s credit cards to buy things. To conclude this, these are my reasons why Fortnite should be banned and why kids under the age of 12 shouldn’t be allowed to play.

Literacy – Persuasive Advertisement

Yesterday for literacy we made a start on persuasive writing. Before we did that we made adds that would persuade people to buy it. We could choose any item and made an add out of it. I chose a hand sanitizer. I will share my short piece of writing later in the week. I hope you have enjoyed this post. Please leave a positive comment on my blog.

HW WK2 – Literacy 6 Sentence Story

 Task Description: This week’s homework included a literacy task. In this literacy task we had to create a six sentence story based on an image that was given to us. The image had two kids sitting on the edge/wing of the plane. Here is my story. I hope you have enjoyed this post. Please leave a positive comment on my blog.

Writing: Siblings Lizzy and Luke were on vacation with their parents. This was a vacation trip for them, but for their mum it was a business trip. Their parents were quite wealthy so they paid first class for all of them. During the flight Lizzy and Luke were told to say put and don’t be disruptive. They did the complete opposite and snuck out of the plane. As they walked on the wing of the plane, a gust of wind blew them off.
