Bitten By Common Annoying Pests

Last week on Monday the 13th we had to write an explanation about what happens before and after we're bitten by a pests. You got to choose which pest to write about, you could even have more than one. I chose to write about fleas and mosquitoes. Friday was supposed to be the last day but our teacher is so nice, she gave us an extra day! I don't like writing explanations but hey, at least I got this finished! 

You’ll probably be minding your own business, wandering around and then you’ll hear buzzing right next to your ear and think nothing of it. A few minutes later you’ll see a red bump and feel itchy or you’ll just be scratching at your head. There are so many insects waiting for you and you don’t know when they’re going to strike! I’ve been struck by fleas many times because of my cute, adorable kitten. After you’ve been bitten, you’ll be scratching at a red lump in the hope of it going away but nope! More will appear after the first one, well, that’s what happens to me! If you try to resist then it will get noticeable and will be the only thing you’ll think about. Scratching might not be the best idea in the world though. Some itchy bites start bleeding if you scratch them too many times and some might become infected and swell up. Mosquitoes like to live in tall grass and bushes near our homes waiting for us. They’d also live near places with water to help them live. Fleas like to live in our homes, on animals and even us! If you have a pet or pets, that will make it easier for the fleas to get to you. Mosquitoes are just annoying. You can slap and spray them to get rid of them. For a flea, you can pop its head, flea bomb the house or clean your pets. Thirdly, lice start sucking a small amount of blood from you, less than mosquitoes. If you want to know if you have lice or you feel like you have them then, clean your hair with nit shampoo and comb your hair. To know if you have lice is the itchiness, them biting us causes an allergic reaction. Now, you might not feel itchy right away but later on you’ll start scratching your head, ears and even neck! If a mosquito bites you, you have a chance to get the zika virus. Sometimes you’ll start showing symptoms and sometimes you won’t. You can treat this but not get rid of it.
You have been warned. Use these tips to see if you have any pests lying around! Remember, they’ll be hiding waiting to get to you, your house or pet. It’s not always that easy to make pests “disappear,” so make sure you know what you’re doing and how you’re doing it.

Maths - Time

For maths we are currently working on time. Maths isn't my greatest strength and time definitely isn't either but I tried and it was fun decorating my answers.

I'm planning to do some work at home when I get the chance just to improve.

A Weird Obsession

For inquiry we had to write a description about our desired pest and I chose a rabbit! I have an obsession with rabbits that I didn’t even know I had! We had to create a poster with a picture of a pest and I said rabbit, we also had to write a description about a pest and I chose a rabbit! This is a short presentation.

Tweet Tweet!

The past Wednesdays we've been doing art with our Wednesday teacher, Mrs Hoeberigs. Lately, we've been drawing New Zealand's native birds. I drew an owl but, I copied it from a book. I think it turned out pretty good, so good that you wouldn't be able to tell the difference! Out of all seriousness though, I really am proud of my drawing! The next step, painting!

Potential Friends!

Eight days ago I was sent something. A document which had to do with inquiry. Can anybody take a guess?

Nau Mai, Haere Mai, Welcome to Te Taiao o Tāmaki Quad Blogging
Thank you for registering your blog. This is an awesome opportunity for us to learn, create and share with Manaiakalani bloggers this term. All our schools have chosen a unique Te Taiao o Tāmaki  learning focus and we are looking forward to our cluster learning celebration at Te Oro, on Wednesday 12th April.

YES! I am apart of a blogging group! If you haven't already noticed, I love to join any activity that involves blogging! I have been put in a blogging group with some interesting people! (And I mean that in a good way!)
When I checked out all their blogs, I could tell how different they all were just by their posts! I then was happy about the group that I was put in!
This is my Te Taiao o Tāmaki Blogging team
Blog Address
Pt England
Glen Innes
St PiusX

The first thing I did was read the instructions.
  1. Move this Google Doc to a folder in your Google Drive
  2. Check you have created a blog post to share some information about your Te Taiao o Tāmaki learning focus. Don’t forget to include the label on your blog post...Te Taiao o Tāmaki
  1. Visit each of your buddies’ blogs and bookmark them.
  2. Choose a recent blog post and leave a blog comment to introduce yourself. Look for the Te Taiao o Tāmaki label on your buddie’s blog.
I ALMOST forgot! The reason there even is a blogging group (there's more than one just so you know) is because we're going to do something for our inquiry topic, PESTS! All the people that have been chosen will blog to their buddies and talk about what has been happening and what they've been learning.
On Wednesday the 12th of April, that is when all the participants go to Te Oro. I can not WAIT to go and meet them all in person! 

Duffy Show! (Which Happened Two Weeks Ago!)

Two week on Tuesday the 14, we had a Duffy Show. We did the same thing we did every time, line up in our class lines and wait quietly for the show to begin. This show in particular was about a kid called Duffy who helped a superhero, Super Global Girl, who was trying to stop global warming but Global Girl had dyslexia. There was a bit of chemistry and all of us were impressed, especially the little ones!

One of my favourite parts was when Global Girl and Duffy were flying and Duffy dabbed! The second one was when the fire said she was melting! Fire doesn't melt! Last but not least, the branch that kept moving away from Duffy! I actually have one more favourite part and that was when the ocean, Moana, made a pun! Nowadays I love making puns and annoying people with it so the ocean pun made me laugh way too hard than it should have! That had to one one of my favourite Duffy shows.
Goodbye for meow! (Did you see what I did there?!)
