Being a Good Friend

WALT: explain to your reader what being a good friend means.

Have you been a good friend? If you haven’t well your lucky you are looking at this because I am going to tell you how to be a great friend yes not a good friend a GREAT friend.

Step one is not to judge on what they look like. Just because they look weird or smell funny doesn’t mean they're not your friend, especially if they changed from cool to fool. It’s not what is happening on the outside it’s what’s on the inside. Just like how people say, don’t judge a book by it’s cover.

Step two is respecting one another. This is really important because if you don’t do this good luck searching for another friend. Respecting your friend means that you won't laugh at them when they say something only shared between you and him or her. You also shouldn’t laugh if they fall down or do something weird, unless it was meant to be funny.

Lastly, step three always tell the truth. This is also really important because if your friend doesn't trust you well um, DUN DUN DUN! This step may seem hard but if you try it will be easy peasy trust me. Well there isn’t really anything to do for this because all your doing is saying the right things. Like if they ask you where someone went you would reply with, they went to the park.

So remember don’t judge by the looks, Respect one another and always tell the truth or…

This week in Extension we had to create our own symbols representing something special about our families. But before we started we had to pick a partner to discus what is special so I picked Ariana. We had a little discussion and she talked about cook island dancing and that was what she picked. I told her to do something about my culture's, Cook Island, Niuean and Tahitian.

After we decided what the symbols were we started to draw but instead of me drawing my own  we had to switch which is when I do Ariana's symbol and she does mine. We only had about half an hour to finish it. I think Ariana's drawing came out pretty good, I really like how she wrote which island is which.

WALT: write an explanation telling people what capitals letters are and when you use them.

Do you know what capital letters are? If you don’t well you're in luck I know a lot about what they are. The first thing you need to know is that the name for the letters are called uppercase letters or capitals, Little kids like to call it big letters.

You can use Capitals at the start of sentences. There are lot’s of ways to use Capitals for example at the start of this sentence, can you see the uppercase letter. You can also use them after a question mark or explanation mark.

Another time you can use uppercase letters are for the name of a day or month. For instance, today is Wednesday the 15th of October 2014. Can you see that I put a capital for the day and the month, these are referred to dates. Of Course you can see it I highlighted it yellow. One more way you can use it as dates are holidays like Christmas or Halloween and more.

Names of people are another way of using uppercase letters. For example, My friends name is Ariana, or My name is Khaia. There are also other names that start with capitals but that will be explained in the next paragraph. So now lets move on to the next way you can use uppercase letters.

Place names can also have capital letter’s to start with. Another way of saying place names are called geographical places. For example, “I love going to Mcdonalds because the food there is delicious” I said Mcdonalds because it is a geographical place. I could also say, “I live in GI which is in Auckland, New Zealand.

So I guess by now you know a lot about what capital letters are and how to use them. So remember you need capitals so that your paragraph or sentence will make sense and so your reader will know what you are writing about.
