Maths - Tia and Tom Money ( Spend & Save )

Today we solved an algebra problem to calculate how much money would be spent and earned by 2 twins . Tom started of with 20$ and spent $2per day . Tia started with $0 and earned $2.50 per day . I used a table to help me calculate the day Tia would overlap Tom with money . We made links to statistics and chose a line graph to show our thinking . You can see clearly , that by Friday , Tia had more money than Tom .

Whakatauki O Te Wiki

Today we had to do a presentation on Whakatauki (  Maori proverb ) . The proverb is " Ma Pango , Ma Whero , Ka Oti Ai Te Mahi " meaning : " With black and red the work will be complete " The words that we  thought / know that  relates to this Whakatauki is : Working together , Cooperation , Partcipation , Communication , Interacting and many more words that relates to it ..

To me, the key message in this whakatauki is :
Supporting others . Interact with others just to get to know them or get involve with the conversation .

You might hear someone use this whakatauki when :

You meet up with your family memebers or  friends and disscus how your going to get or going to do to help out getting the mahi ( work / task / job ) done ..

My own version of this whakatauki :

" Particatation and interacting can help you get this task / mahi / work / job done ..

3rd July , 

Today we had to do a whakatauki ( a maori proverb ) . Our whakatauki today was "kia rere au ki te rangi tuhaha kia tau atu au ki toku tumata " english meaning : "  Let me soar to the heavens so that I may read my portential " 

Key message to this whakatauki : 

The key message in this whakatauki is : Flying high into the heavens . Reach yours goals that  you set for yourself . making a good start in life , pushing yourself to achieve those goals and working towards the brighter vision in life .. Start pushing yourself to where you wanna be in the future .. 

A time in my life where this whakatauki was set : 

A time in my life where I had to carry this whakatauki around was when I had to make a fresh start in life . set new goals , pushing myself to get to that goal .. I had to try push myself to where I want to be in the future I still am working towards thoses goals that I have set for myself .. Its just a matter of time where your going to look back and say I have done that , I worked towards that . 

In the future : 

I can use this whakatauki when : 

Try encourage others to achieve their goals themselves  because they probably don't have that support in their life and they probably need someone there for them .. Try help them achieve that goal and make sure they get to where you think they should be in life .. keep pushing them to achieve that goal of theres and make sure that they work towards that goal .. Help them throughout their life by helping them out with their goals .. 

My own version : 

We all can achieve our goals ,  all we have to do is challenge ourselves to where you want to be in life "

Kumara chips

Yesterday Rm10 made Kumara chips . We got put into groups and each group (one by one ) had to go help Kelly out with the chips . Firs of all we had to wash the Kumara and then chop the into thick slices  ( EVEN slices ) after that we had to put some oil onto the tray and place the slices into the tray .. Preheat your oven to 180c then place your tray into the oven .. Wait for 1 hour or 30 minutes for them too cook .. After they had finished we had to wait for at least 5 minutes for them too cook down .. Then we had to make our sauce , the sauces were Sour cream and Sweet chilli sauce .. I quite enjoyed making Kumara chips ..

Thank you for reading please comment ..
