National standards

Imagine your little brother has made you a birthday card ,he has tried his hardest on it it's spelling bad and the picture on the front Is Messy ,
but you don't say oh that's not up to standard.He has tried hard to make it for you so why in schools does that happen.

National standards don't work for everyone .For kids that English is there second language are struggling in in national standers. even though they find it hard to understand english they get marked same as a student who has a been in education system all their life. It's not right they are trying their hardest but it's not enough .

If kids have tried hard all year, and the teacher can see that they still get marked down. everyone's not Perfect some times it takes a little while longer.

National standards to me is a bad way of judging kids learning.

Tuesay afternoon

For our collaborative art project in class we have do a doddle of something that means a lot to us I did a hand because it helps me learn. We talked about our doodle to each class mate. After that miss announced we were going to be doing a colaborative art project using our doodle! quickly we got into groups only to find miss swap us around becuse for this project we couldn't work with our friends I was annoyed at first but soon I figured it would be nice to meet other people in the class not just stay in my normal group of friends.

In our groups we started to plan our art work my group Nikki, Lele and me decided to splater red green black and yellow on a white piece of paper then in black paint do our doodles on top.Then we got our piece of paper and started on our splatering of the paint it got everywhere but luckly we had put news paper down to keep the floor safe. After we left it to dry ready for the next day to paint our doddle on top.

more maori in schools

should we have more Maori taught in our schools ?

i think we should be teaching young people more Maori taught in schools. when i went to primary my teacher did her best to teach us it but i could tell she did understand it.teacher already have to deal with marking work keeping student quiet and the list go on with out starting on teaching  students a language you don't yourself that's why they should have people to help them.
also learning a language when your young is much easier than when you its a great time to start i have moved to intermediate there has been different opportunity's to learn the Maori culture.
