new update:
ok we have just had our expo and i was very proud of my work. the expo went really well and i got good scores which were better than last time. from mr dando i got 2 excellents and the rest very good. the thing i really agreed on that mr dando gave me is that for editing he put it in the middle of excellent and very good. i agree with that because in my persuassive text i had a little spelling mistake so i need to edit more. i agreed with my peer but there were some things like i got an excellent on presentation and i dont think my preentation was that great. one thing i want to do next time is make a quiz and give out prizes because i have seen others do it. the the part i was most proud of on my negotiated task was my diorama because i worked really hard on it and i had heaps of great ideas. i did have a little trouble painting it but i found a way to mke it better.

so we have had the expo and it was great. i put a lot of hard work into my negotiated task and i was proud to present it to the school and parents. alot of people loved my diorama and thought it was very well set out. alt of people were very impresed. i loved the little kids faces when they saw the lego people doing the athletic olympics. i was proud of my work all of it but i need to definetley work on my presentation because i think there was to much writting espically the mind map and persuassive text. maybe next time i could do something on the computer.
