For one of my Tic-Tac-Toe this week I chose to read a Kiwi Kids article " NZ 4th most peaceful country in the world", and then use the Somebody-Wanted-But-So-Then chart to summarize the story I just Read.

Somebody- Who is the Main character?
There is not a main character in the story as there is no humans, in the story but you could say that the "main " Character could be NZ as it is talking about how NZ is the 4th most peaceful country.

Wanted - What does the character want or what is it's main goal?
I think that the people of NZ's main goal is to be rated as the most peaceful country in the world

But  -What is the problem in the story or what is keeping the character for achieving it's his/her goal?
What is keeping NZ away from it's goal ( To be the first rated country in the world) is the index rates countries on it's level of security and level of safety.

So - What is the solution to the problem or what is the characters main goal?
Nz's main goal is to be rated the peaceful country in the world. I think we could try and achive this by doing the right thing and trying to get along with others.

Then - How does the story end?
It still hasn't ended yet, NZ is still trying to become the first most peaceful country...

Image Prompts

For one of my tic-tac-toe's this week I chose to review this quote/picture. We had to observe and think about the meanings to the quote. We had to also write down some responses and thoughts about the picture/quote here are my thoughts.  I also wrote what I thought about the quote ( that I thought related to this quote), and what it's meanings are after the dash.

  • We are born to be real not perfect.  - We can't do everything and nobody is perfect.
  • In the end we only regret the chances we didn't take. - Jump to every opportunity.
  • Don't judge me by my successes, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again. - Don't judge a fish by what it can't  do.

Summarising (Tic-Tac-Toe Term 3).

For one of my tic-tac-toe's this week I decided to practice my summarising. So I decided to go on to the bitesize website and do the mini test. You had to read the piece of text and then answer the questions. (Just like an Icas test). I got nine out of ten, although I guessed a few.
