Lizzy's Procedural Text: How To Make A Flower

Tuesday 17 September 2013

How To Make A Flower.

- Cloth/Material
- Thread/String
- Needle
- Scissors
- Button

First we chose a material to make our flower with. It was round.

Secondly, we picked up our string and needle and threaded the string through the hole in the needle.

After that we sowed our material in and out all the way around.

After that step, we tied a knot to hold the flower together at the top.

Finally, we grabbed our button and sewed it on.

It was fun making a flower.

Emotions: Connection Task


What are two reasons why having feelings is important?
1. To let other people know how you feel.
2. Feelings help us survive hard times.

How can knowing more about your feelings help you on your journey through the teenage years?

Talk about it with a person you can depend on and a person that can have a shoulder for you to cry on.  

This is my emotions answering sheet. These two questions are really in depth and make sure you leaev me some comments about my work.

Te Marama and Terina Lyrics: My Favourite Song:

Te Marama:
Te Marama i te po nei
Nga Whetu i te  rangi
Oho ake koe e Hine
Papaki kau ana  e

Me pea hara koe e hine
E mutu wai ko a--roha
Me he rukuruku pea
Nga wai o Matauri  e

Me pehea ra e hine
E mutu ai to aroha?
Me rukuruku pea
Nga wai o Waikato e

Terina, aue Terina
Tipu e rea, Terina e
Kaua e huri ke.

Ko koe ra
Taku nei raukura’
Ma tau a-roha
E ray o taku
Titapa e

These are my favourite songs which include the lyrics. Be sure to leave me some comments about it! These songs represent my culture and who I am inside of me. These songs are songs from my family. These are Maori songs known famous in my family. To me, these words mean courage, strength and faith in our whanau and we have passed these words down, but the one that we all have is... LOVE... AROHA... This is the one word we all know and we all have towards our whanau.

Beyonce Knowles: Ave Maria Lyrics

She was lost in so many different ways
Out in the darkness with no guide.
I know the cost of a losing hand there
But for the grace of God, oh I...

I found heaven on earth
You are my last, my first
And then i hear this voice inside...
Ave Maria

I've been alone when I'm surrounded by friends
How could the silence be so loud?
But I still go home knowing that I've got you
There's only us when the lights go down

You are my heaven on earth
You are my hunger, my thirst
I always hear this voice inside...
Singing Ave Maria

Sometimes love can come and pass you by
While you're busy making plans.
Suddenly hits you, and then you realize
It's out of your hands...
Baby, you've got to understand

You are my heaven on earth
You are my last, my first
And then I hear this voice inside...
Ave Maria
Ave Maria
Ave Maria

My Bio Poem About ME!


Dreamer, funny, loving, caring
My puppy, my family, eating
Who feels blessed, loved, tired at the end of a busy day at school
Who needs less hugs, longer days, more rain
Who gives everything a go, love to my family, encouragement towards my brothers
Who would like to see the Statue of Liberty, space, the world to become a better place to live.
Resident of Panmure, Auckland.


Phillippe Petit

I shook as chills of fear took over me. Hovering holding my screams in, trying not to let them hesitate others around me. Trotting towards the wire limping on purpose, I tilt my head up and pray to God. To bless me with his faith and strength. Releasing my leg onto the wire, feeling my digestive system twist and change their positions. My stomach twisted into a knot but I knew I still had the courage to complete my ambition. Taking deep, deep breaths wondering if I could do this. Breathing in and out, fear haunted me. As I put my head silently down, winds past me swishing and smacking me. But I didn’t fall. Still with my head down, seeing ant-like people bustling in and out of the subway. Emotions punched me. Tears were building up behind my eyes. I couldn’t take it.

A tremendous fire started up in my body. Leaving sweat trickling down my body. I took a fourth step onto the cable. Talking to my fear feelings, telling them it is my day to shine. Telling them that it’s my day to learn and I am in control now! My fear feelings then fall asleep. Now that’s one thing off my worry list. Stepping one by one. Holding onto the balancing stick, relaxed as I pulled my back down towards the cable. Laying my legs down as I look up to the sky felt like freedom. Seeing the sky fade away then appear again. Such a majestic sight. Noticing birds soar above and below me. Seeing planes drift above me felt like Heaven. Standing up again, leaning onto the wire for grip, words I can’t describe drained through me like a bullet rebounding off me. Landing on the edge of the North Tower.

As I reached the centre of the wire, my eyes faded in time. Almost falling asleep, blinking repeatedly, wide awake at this time. Wondering if I had the courage to look down. Couldn’t do it, but I did it anyway! Quickly putting my head up and walked on, I was almost there. Three quarters of the way. I stopped and felt a surge of laughter contain in my body. It was released into the air. I laughed and laughed for no reason at all. I wanted to do something fun but silly at the same time. I wriggled my legs and arms until I was focused again. Focused finally, I took the final steps towards the end. As the end came, I decided to make a run for it. So I put my head up, and took a breath like it was the last to come out of my mouth. I then began to make my steps more faster and faster. Running at full speed, I made it and how happy was I? I had the courage to make my ambition reality and my dreams came true. The most words that went through my mind was would make it? Should I just fall! But I took over and won!
