Can Sleeping Too Much Make You Tired?

Description: In reading I watched a video about if you can sleep too much.


Summary: Can sleeping too much make you tired. The answer is yes. But how much should you sleep.  First, how old are you? Babies up to 2yrs old should sleep whenever, kids from 2-18 should sleep 7.5-9.5 hours, and adults should sleep between 7.5 and 8.5 hours. If you sleep too much, there is a higher chance of you getting heart disease.

Reading Followup

Description: In reading we had a workshop, then had a Followup to do. My Followup was to summarize a story about the history of WOW!

Suzie Moncrieff had an art gallery in Nelson, NZ. She wanted to promote her gallery, so she hired some designers to make art put onto the human body, instead of on the wall. She was not that impressed with lots of the garments, with them being knitted, but the next year, 1988 was LOADS better! The show got bigger and bigger! In 2004, WOW announced that They would move to Wellington to perform. The show grew popularity by 50%, with 35,000 people turning up!

Pae Tamariki Portfolio Sample

Description: Pae Tamariki is a Maōri festival in Palmerston North, which is schools in the Metro area who have a Kapa Haka group, and preform at the Regent on Broadway. This event stunned the city on the 31st July 2015.

Big Idea:
At Pae Tamariki, I felt quite excited to be doing this for a second time.

I felt most proud of me doing this again because performing in front of a big crowd is quite a big job, so I felt very, very lucky.

I found focusing challenging because I was quite excited for preforming.

I managed this challenge by thinking about other things like what's for dinner.

At Kapa Haka, I next want to explore more songs and cultural stuff like some of the history.

Feedback/FeedForward: I like the way you are honest and you were excited. Shaiv
Next time you can add a little bit more but it's looking good. Shaiv.

Maths Portfolio Sample

Description: In maths with Elly, we have been learning to use the box method both by dividing and multiplying. This has really helped me with my maths for really tricky questions, like 16x43.

Big Idea:

Feedback & Feedforward: I think you have done really well with the box method. With these pictures I think you have got how to do the box method. I think you should keep using this strategy because by looking at this post you have got the questions right. Great Work! Rosalind:)

Evaluation: I think I have gotten the hand of the multiplication, but I need help with the division.
