Math portfolio sample

In class we did some algebra and we had to do a timeline about how long it took them to break. James sent us a email and the banana skin and stuff like that. James also tought us about the broken timeline. It's were you draw a little squiggle and a strat line again. I worked with Camden and Alex.

Feedback/Feedforward: I kown I worked on that project too. Maybe next time tell us what is breaking Edward

Evaluation: I think I did good but next time I could have tidier writing.

Te Reo

In Te Reo we are learning our Maori fruits and stuff on the dinner table. We did a kahoot for learning our Maori fruits and stuff on the dinner table. Other people did games like you know what the English name is but you have to work out what the Maori name is. The kahoot is not working so here is a like to go to the song that we are learning and it's called aotearoa by Stan Walker. At the start of the lesson we do the song.

Feedback/Feedforward: I like how you told everyone that you leant that song well I am working on the same project like you. Maybe next time describe the fruits and vegetables in Maori. Edward
Evaluation: I think I did good but next time I could descibe the fruits and vegetables.

Sea Turtle

Description: In class we had to write a story about sea turtles. 1st we had to brainstom. I made a lifecycle that went egg then babies then growing up then adults. After that we did sentence starters, technical words and connectives. Then we wrote the story.
Story: The sea turtle is a threatened species. The female can lay up to 500 eggs. First the male digs a hole for the eggs to hide them from predators. Only 20% hatches and half of that gets the water with out predators eating them. 10 of them grow up to be teenagers and 5 grow up to be adults. And that is the lifecycle of a sea turtle.

Feedback/Feedforward: maybe next time you could add a photo of the the lifecycle that you made. I love that you said how you did the writing in steps and it was a great discription. Camden
Evaluation: I think I did good but next time instead of writing it again I could take a photo.

Feedback/Feedforward you did a very good discription from my view i thought that its a very informing discription but you could still work on it like you could make it longer so it more discription. juven

Evaluation: It was good but next time we could plan what cones we were going to.
