WALT: Monitor ourselves to read a novel
WALT: Choose the apporopriate form of measurement.
Hi everyone, I have completed another Maths task about area and perimeter. And I have now learned about volume which is basically just the Area but of a 3d shape, all you have to do is times all sides together. And to find out the area on a triangle, you multiply the sides and cut it in half.
Hello, today we will be learning something new. Measurements, we started very simple and I think that will change during the rest of the term. Our WALT is to choose the appropriate form of measurement.
I hope you enjoy this post!
WALT: Solve fraction word problems

Scroll down to see the voiceover and it’s rubric.
|What background information do you learn about Victor?
|Victor is a boy in Fresno who went to Saint Theresa’s with Teresa who is Victor’s crush.
|When the boys scowl, the girls look at them. What might the girls be thinking?
|The girls think that they might be nice but won’t take it seriously.
|What obstacles are getting in the way of Victor making Teresa “his girl”?
|Won’t speak confidently and French properly.
|How does the tension increase now that Victor and Teresa are in the same class together?
|The tension already encrusted when Victor had a thought about Teresa being in French class with him because Teresa was in French back Saint Theresa’s.
|Why did the teacher turn his back and walk to the blackboard?
|To make the class sing the lyrics on the blackboard.
Or to not make Victor embarrassed.
|The French teacher, Mr. Bueller, realises that Victor is faking his knowledge of French, yet he does not let on about it. What impression does Mr. Bueller’s action tell you about him as a person and as a teacher?
|He is a pretty chill teacher, I think that he doesn’t yell that much and he resolves problems whether it’s awkwardly faking French and helping people do french.

Voice Over Rubric
This is a rubric for my voice over version of Seventh Grade.
If you don’t know what a rubric is, a rubric is an awesome way to record data and mark your own work. There will be 4 topics that will score from 1-4 and then out of 16 overall. In this case, it is to show how fluent my reading was in the recording aka the voice over. So I recommend listening to the voice over BEFORE checking the rubric.
And to listen to my voice over, listen to it below this slideshow.
The Voice over
This is the voice over to Seventh Grade made by ME. It also includes a short description of who Gary Soto is as extra because I was having a fun time that day.
PS: I didn’t say the French teacher (Mr Bueller) correctly so please bear with me near the end of the story, Thanks!
