My reflection on endless rhythm by Isabella



Art: Reflecting on my Endless Rhythm Painting


1. Are you pleased with your Endless Rhythm painting? why / why not?
Yes because it blends in with the colours and it looks like the real thing



2. What did you find easy when you created your Endless Rhythm painting?

I found painting the halves of the circles easy because it has a lot of room to paint



3. What part did you find tricky when you were creating your Endless Rhythm painting? -think about painting, ruling it up tracing plates, cups, etc.

I found ruling up the plates and cups hard because we need to make it even



4. Who / What helped you when you were painting?
Miss Paton, Angel, Fine, Caitlin and Asmah


5. What would you do differently next time? Think about:
colours, painting, ruling up, etc.
I would change my colours to make it match and blend in.


6. What frustrated you when you created your Endless Rhythm painting?
The thing that frustrated me was when we had to paint around the circle because we had to go slow and plus my hand was shaking.

My comment to Caitlin by Isabella

This is my comment to Caitlin on her presentation

My presentation rubric by Isabella


This is my rubric that Asmah did for me on my presentation. As you can see I need to work on my loud and clear voice. I also need to work on my eye contact maybe if I need to get better at it I need to learn my notes off by heart. Also if I need to have a loud clear voice I need to speak loud through out the entire performance. The ones that I did well on is the knowledge of topic because I tried my best and my friends helped me practice a lot of times. Check it out and make some comments.

My presentation on Anzac by Isabella

Isabella's Netbook Reflection

This year I have found using my netbook to be successful. I have enjoyed using my netbook because.....  
We can upload presentations, photographs, stories and other things. When I put something on my blog I always put a picture to go with it. Also I enjoy uploading stories that we do in class because when we get it checked I can upload it to my blog. When we do presentations like how we're doing presentations for our Festivals and Celebrations. I find uploading things on my blog really successful because then when we have more posts we get more comments and we have more people from around the world checking out my blog. I also like it when people comment on my work and that will let me know that I’m doing a great job on my work and on my blog. Also I can show my work off in assembly, in class on the big screen or to other people from other schools or around the world.



The barriers in using my netbook are.....
When we had internet problems and flash issues with maths whizz. I really find it annoying because when we need to do something really important with our learning our internet gets really slow because a lot of people are on their netbooks or the other classes are on their netbooks. Also when we have to go on math whizz we have flash problems and when I go on it the whole screen freezes when it is in the middle of loading. The sad issue with my netbook was when it got taken in the burglary. I got really upset that it got taken and I got really tired when it took a long time to get another one. I also don't like it when my math whizz is slow we have to reimage it my netbook over and over again.



The interesting aspects / parts to using my netbook are.......
Getting to take my netbook home for the holidays or during the week so we can do our homework. Also when we take our netbooks home and we haven’t finished our work we can do it at home. I like taking my netbook home because when we have nothing to do in the holidays we can go on other peoples blogs or we can publish a story we did in the holidays or we can make comments on other peoples blogs.

I also like it when Miss Paton checks my work so that she can show it in assembly or she can put it up in class on the big screen so that I know that I have done a great job with my work.
