On Friday the 23rd of August Room 13 and Room 15 did the speech finals. There was 7 people that got into the finals we had the speech finals in our classroom. Stella and Felix were the mc`s for the speech finals an Liesel and Mr Barker were the judges. The people that got into the finals were Holly doing her speech on why her uncle should stop smoking and then Paloma doing her speech on why you should be a vegeterian. The third person was Lotta doing her speech on why things shouldnt be called man made they should be person made. After Lotta it was Leo doing his speech on why you should stop whaling. Then we had Emily doing hers on why we should stop poaching animals. There was one that I quite liked which was Jamie`s she was doing hers on why we shouldn`t do Homework I would agree with her on that. The last person that we had was kaia doing hers on why kids shouldn`t be forced to eat poridge and after everyone had finished they announced the winner and the winner was Emily. Then the judges gave them all a certificate. I think did a great job because I would be nervous if I had to stand up and do my speech in front of the all the parents and all the year 4s.
Room 13s buddy class is Room 4 and we have been doing a program called ABC Helpers. We help them to learn to be better readers and writers. We help them write by getting two white boards (1 for our buddy and 1 for us). We help them read by getting him/her a book from their book box. We also bring a book up every day to read with them. One of Room 13s reading groups goes up to Room 4s class and we pick a buddy to read and write with. It is a lot of fun when we read to them, when they read to us and when we read to them. Normally the book we will bring is our journal that we are reading or otherwise a Dr. Seuss book
Here are some photos of my ABC buddy and my friend Jacks ABC buddy. My buddy was called hugo when I last went.

Room 13 have had these awesome mac book laptops for last two weeks. In the Totara team each week they get passed on to room 11, room 12, room 14, and room 15. The past few days we have been blogging on these laptops. The best thing about that there is ten mac book laptops for everyone to work on we have safari, kid pix, photo booth, iTunes, face talk, iPhoto and all kinds of apps.
Well I feel kind of fantastic writing my blog on these mac book laptops. So what does the lap tops look like its like the hole cover is silver and the camera on the top of the middle. so lets get in to more things that the class does with them. We do some research for the speeches we go on safari took photos on the awesome photo booth, and record our maths strategies to share.
So thats the blog of the awesome mac books, for now!
