NO TURNING BACK!!

Do you know what it is like to have no net-book? I do, and I never want to turn back.

In the olden days (last year), we use to use pencil and paper, and that made school, a bit boring. I would never want to go back to that. Last year all classes had to write in a book which was horrible, because, when we wrote a really awesome story, we didn’t get a chance to put it on our blog and show it to the world. It’s kind of like training for a sports match and train and train, but don’t get a game, who wants to do that? But with the net-books we can write a story and put it straight on our blog.

Ever since we have had our net-books, it has made my learning better, HEAPS BETTER!! They have made school better and have made me actually want to come to school now. I have been learning lots on the net-books in lots of fun ways like maths whizz, Thesaurus.com, Dictionary.com and a whole lot more of exciting sites. Another way the net-books have been a help is that, instead of going to our teacher to find out what we are going to do next, we get to go on Google Sites, which is easier for us, and a whole lot easier for the teachers too.

But still there are some problems that we have, and we think there can be improvements. One of them is our drawing system. We use Tux Paint, but, our drawing is not as good as what we do on the iMacs. The Tux Paint system almost makes our work look like a 6 year old did it. There is one last problem; the Internet connection is not fast enough. It is a bit slow and sometimes, on other peoples net-books, their Internet keeps on going on and off and on and off. That’s about it.



I can hardly imagine what it would be like without a netbook.

OUTTA THIS WORLD!!

video
Through out this whole term, Room 17 got a project from our teacher to animate two parts of a movie. in the first part of the movie we had to create a problem that was wrong with the earth, my problem was, a lot of people were dropping their rubbish on the ground. Because this has happened know one has anywhere to live and then we had to move to a planet in space, JUPITER.

The second part of the movie was, there was also a problem on the planet we picked to live in. My problem was that there was no air to breath and we were breathing in toxic gas. The tricky part of the second part of the movie was that for this problem, we had to have a solution. I found a solution but you have to watch the movie to find out. Hope you enjoy it.

Adidas Sale!!

Through out Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, ADIDAS had a sale with lots of cool things. ADIDAS has a sale every once a year, and they bring out a lot of new stuff and put them on a very very low cost from their usual cost. I only went on Saturday and Sunday. My auntie works at ADIDAS and she gave my whole family free tickets to go in.
When I first went with my cousin, my cousin rang his mum who worked there, let us in for free and we started our SHOPPING (cough cough). When we started walking around, I was holding a bag to bye. We were looking at these runners and I really wanted to bye them, but I didn't have enough money. When I knew that the workers could get a discount, I gave my runners that I wanted to my auntie to bye. I also went to the sale on Sunday and then brought 6 pairs of all blacks socks, and a All Blacks training jersey.

The ADIDAS sale was awesome and I can't wait for next years sale. I heard that the next ADIDAS sale, they would have with REEBOK gears to.
