Converting Fractions to Decimals and Percentages

  1. First pick a fraction to convert. 
  2. You need to divide the top number of the fraction by the bottom number of the fraction. These numbers are known by the Numerator and Denominator. 
  3. You will end up with a decimal then you must times that number by 100, then you should end up with your percentage.

SLJ, Picture Perfect- Week 2, Activity 3, Day 4

Today, My task was to create a story using the picture which is down below. Here is mine. 😁

As I climbed the steps to the place where I had been longing to take a selfie at since the moment I got here in Venice, I was starting to feel a bit nervous from the height and how dangerous this was going to be, but I decided I NEED this selfie. Soon I was starting to feel more and more excited with each step I took. "A couple more steps to go" I said to myself. Once I climbed the last step I scrambled to the very very edge of the platform. Making sure I got my face and the beautiful surrounding I clicked the button, "and... done". Very carefully I got myself out of the risky position I was in and made sure the photo was perfect and then I started to walk back to my B&B.

Image result for wonder
Photo by
The person I have chosen for this activity is Auggie Pullman from the book Wonder. I think he is mentally strong rather than strong with muscles. I picked him as he was born with a condition called Treacher Collins. Treacher collins is a condition in which some bones and tissues in the face are not developed. I think that August is really brave as he has had to block out the bullies his whole life. 

SLJ, Going, going….gone- Week 1, Activity 3, Day 5

In my opinion I lived in one of the most beautiful countries in the world. New Zealand was made up of three islands. Two main, and one smaller one. The north island was home to the capital city and the biggest city in New Zealand, while in the south island it was bursting with bush and nature. New Zealand had some great bush walks like the Abel Tasman and the Heaphy Track. There were also great places to see like the Pancake rocks at Punakaiki Te Papa museum in Wellington.
