Why homework is... IMPORTANT!

Why homework is IMPORTANT!

You're probably thinking to yourself “Why do I have to do homework??”, well homework is very important and I am going to tell you why!

In my opinion, I used to think that homework was the absolute WORST!, but then I thought to myself about “Homework; why is it important?”, which leads us to our first  reason and example why homework is important. The first reason homework is important is something called… RECAP. To be honest you always need to recap your work because when you don’t recap you will learn something but also loose it, for example when you learn something brand new it gets stuck in your mind and you just need to get it out of your brain like imagine what that learning ability is say… “PLEASE LET ME OUT, EDITH NEEDS TO LEARN SOMETHING NEW!”, see imagine how much trouble they're probably having to get the information you think you don’t know.

For the next reason is… boredom. Homework can actually be fun if try to put in some free time; for example if you are a busy person I understand because I am a person that has to go to sports training, but if you are a genius or possibly just someone to finish their work fast you can use that free time to finish off homework. On the other hand, if you are a person with no after school activities and a slow finisher, you are pretty lucky because if you get so bored you can just ask your teacher for homework on what you're stuck on.

The final statement of why homework is important is because when you do homework you can develop new skills so it is going to be a whole clump of easier work for you and it is going to be easier for paying attention and making much more fun and mind blowing, apart of this reason is finding older work less diligent, and you can develop enough skills to save the world and do beautiful things to it by sharing your knowledge to the world to make their lives absolutely… AMAZING!!!.


Therefore these are my statements of why homework is important.

Tip Top recount

Tip Top :D

Today the middle syndicate (Rm5, Rm 6, Rm 8, and If course Rm 7) went to the Tip Top factory in Auckland, NZ. They firstly had 1 hour to finish off left over work but we are going to skip to the start of the trip.

“I can’t WAIT!, I’m going to Tip Top today!”, I thought to myself while I was approaching to the door of Room 6. I was really excited but as I was about to scream I heard a voice from Mrs Sharma which was “Before we leave, we need to put you’s in your guys group”, I was one of the last people to be chosen but little did I know my group seemed to be all my best friends which are Lydia, Hevani, and Grace, with my favourite Uncle, Uncle Daved.

On the bus it felt for 20,0000 years because it was so long and the factory was so far well in my opinion. I was so excited when we vanished out of the bus because I just wanted some Ice Cream and find out what it is made of; but just my luck I had found out we wait for like 1 hour and 30 minutes but it was fine because we had fun games like Cards, Chess, and pick up sticks, there was also a park. Once we got to inside of the factory I got to learn heaps of things like…:
Ice cream is made out of 7 ingredients (ice, cream, milk, sugar, main ingredients.flavouring, candy optional, and colour optional), I also learnt that the fridges that they keep are like ours and have the same temperature (4*C), the top 5 ice creams are Vanilla, Hokey Pokey, French Vanilla, Boysenberry, and Cookies’n’Cream.
We also got to eat Ice cream and watch the information and how Tip Top grew.

When the trip I had a huge frowny face because imagine if you had a dream that you won $60,0000 and you woke up to no money because that is how I felt. After I had stepped into class I found out it was school but then I thought to myself “Edith we can do this I mean you are an amazing writer”, so I felt a lot better because with that boost I was absolutely amazed of how my story was!.

This is my recount about Tip Top, I hope you enjoyed because I know I did!.

WALT: Critically examine food advertisements

This advertisement is selling a Mcdonald's burger because if you can see the title you can see whats in the burger. I really like this picture because I think it is very creative and it compares 2 things I love, Books, Burgers, food, and Mcdonalds.


This advertisement is selling Taco's from Taco bell, this picture persuaded me because I LOVE TACOS, and since were in NZ we do not get Taco Bell and I would love to try it. It is also like a game and I love games.

Why typing on computers is better than handwriting!

Why typing on computers is better than handwriting!

I feel that you are going to agree when I tell you that… typing on a computer is better than handwriting.

In my opinion I believe that typing on a computer can make you more skilled. When you are hand there is a 99% chance that you will get tired when writing with a book. For example when you start to write for hours (Like on a test) you hands can shake and be really tired and your hands will be fatigue, well this is because of one of these thing known as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, CTS (Carpal Tunnel Syndrome) can prevent tightness to your wrists or Numb fingers, you can get CTS if you go fishing, knitting, sewing, and… WRITING!!!. So this is my first statement.

This is my second reason why computers are better than books. When you are typing on a computer you don’t have to worry about having bad writing. For example typing on the computers has this toolbar on top of your doc or whatever you're using to write. Toolbars have different type of titles and systems to make your stories more professional and able to read for any types of ages over 8. As for your book sometimes you can feel pressured and write horrible on book but on a device you can type as fast or slow as you like and still be able to read your story. This is my second statement why Devices are better than books.

Now for my 3rd and final reason of why devices are better than Books is… When you are writing on a book it can be very challenging for you and the pencil or pen. To prove this reason when you are just writing a story you can be enjoying it but then at a random time “SNAP”, your pencil just broke and then you have to waste 2 minutes of your time sharpening your pencil. You're probably thinking “What if your using a pen!?!?” well a pen can be worst because when you're using a pen it can run out of ink and that is AWFUL!!!. So this is my final reason.

Therefore this is why you agree that typing on a computer is better than handwriting.

My planning for recent writing

USE THESE WORDS:

In my opinion..
Some believe that..
I feel that..
… therefore …
… moreover …
Because

Unfair
In the same way..
On the other hand..
In this situation…
Better
Best

I feel that it is a parents responsibility to decide if their child can have a phone or not, that responsibility should not fall to the school or the teacher.

Some people might argue that having phones in school could lead to more cyberbullying, on the other hand, at TPS we do Cybersmart which teaches us how to be responsible on the internet.


Title: Why phones should be in school!.
Introduction:
I believe that we should let the parents decide if we could have a phone so that it will not be the schools, and the teacher's problem, it will be our business to deal with.

First paragraph:

O
Most people think that, using cell phones can be leading to a place where they could start to cyberbully, on the other hand, if you have a manaiakalani school there will be people that will come and teach you about cyberbullying and cyber smart.
R
In this situation phones will be very helpful because it is contained to help you with learning at school and not to help you hurt others people's feeling this is also why we have netbooks, it is so that we can learn so in the same way, a phone is exactly like a netbook but just smaller and a lot easier to take care of.

E
For example there is many people that will come in and help us with taking care of our devices if we have phones at school and also your parents wouldn’t even give us a phone, and their are many websites that say R13 which means that it is only for 13yrs old and over. Sometimes it's even R16.
O
So my first opinion is about cyberbullying and websites, and how mature people should only have cell phones.

Second paragraph:

O
Phones are very useful for learning and these are my reason and explanation why.
R
Most people believe that when you are on your phones you will play games and take selfies, but a phone is also very useful in a classroom since the games on phones are usually word problems, adding, or just like an online reading website, the camera on your phone to take beautiful selfies but you can also learn brand new methods and remembering it by taking photos, and you can use your camera to remember stuff on the app every phone has ‘notes’.
E
For example there are apps that can help you that are games, but, are also learning. There are 3 games (or more) that actually can help with learning like; Quizup (Writing and reading) , Brain wars (Maths and writing), and last but not least Audible (Reading). If you go on the audible website they will let you have a 30 day free trial.
O
Therefore phones can be very useful for learning and not just distracting people and yourself.

Third paragraph:

O
This is my last reason why which is… communication and safety.
R
First of all I am pretty sure they created phones for communication, because without communication life will be quite boring, but there's also communication for safety reasons.
E
For example if their is a fire and the teachers are in the staff room and the door is jammed you can use your phone to contact the police, firemen, and your parents.
O
So this is my third reason of the statement.

Conclusion:

Summarise the 3 ideas
Phones are important to have because it helps with communication, learning and it safe since their are restrictions for websites which will stop most people from cyberbullying. If there are people that disagree the parents and teacher can take their phone from the kid.
Recommendations or reflections
I believe that we should let the parents decide if we could have a phones because of these 3 reasons, 3 examples, and 6 opinions.
