My poem about Moss

The Moss

I love to grow on the hard wooden trees, growing
upwards pleases me.
As lush as a evergreen I like to be, the colour never comes out of me
As tall as a acorn I like to be, that way I won’t be so seen
I love to grow like someone has painted me because everyone will see me

As comfy as a cushion I like to be, but maybe I am too wet to be

I love to absorb water through my rhizoids, so I stay nice and clean     

I love to have lots of seeds, so everyone can use me for their needs

Learning about shapes

Sneakers or jandals?

Sneakers or jandals?

In term 1, room 8 we were learning how to write a discussion about pros and cons.
We used a template to help us write out our ideas, then we took out the template. This is my discussion about pros and cons.

Sneakers and jandals are both great footwear to wear in summer. Both have good and bad aspects about these types of footwear. I will discuss the pro’s and cons of wearing either of these shoes.

Primarily jandals are great for wearing at the beach because they are loose and you can get all the sand out very easily. Furthermore jandals are good to wear when you are in a rush because you can slip them on and off very easily. All though Jandals are bad for running on concrete because you can easily stub your toe and they can flick dirt up your back. Finally jandals are bad to wear for day walks because they don’t have much grip to go up steep hills.

Primarily Sneakers are great for tramping and doing things outdoors because they are covered shoes and they secure your feet. They have great grip on the bottom which makes it easy for walking. Furthermore sneakers have padded soles, which makes it really comfy to wear if you go on a walk. However sneakers are bad to wear at the beach because they can’t get wet. If they get wet they can chaff and you get blisters. In addition sneakers are bad to wear when you are in a rush because they can be hard to get on and you have to tie the laces up.

Both jandals and sneakers are good for doing things in summer. Sneakers are great for doing things outdoors but they are not good for wearing at the beach. Jandals are great to wear at the beach, but are bad to wear for day walks. They both have good and bad aspects.
