For a few days the grade 5’s have been writing poems on any topic, mine was on the Renegades in the BBL.
The title of this book is The WRONG BOOK. This is written by Nick Bland.
A young boy named Nicholas Ickle is trying to explain what his book is about, but there are alot of distractions, when he finally gets there it is THE END.
I believe that the theme in this book is- to be persistent and never giving up.
This is a video/yarn on Ned Kelly’s last stand when he is in jail. Enjoy.
Melody is a 11 year old girl. She has Cerebral Palsy. She can not walk or talk. She joins the Whiz Quiz team and ends up getting a Medi -Talker, which says the words for her. She had never been so happy. After a long chain of events Melody see’s the funny side when her team left with out her going to the Washington DC finals for Whiz Quiz.
This book had a important message, I think the message is “just because some one has a disability doesn’t mean there not Human”. The author- Sharon Draper, said “To just smile and say hello”.

I think Sharon Draper wrote this for those who struggle and don’t have any words. She also wrote it for those who look after the ones with disabilities.

What’s the difference in goals..
The two learning goals are short term goals (1 term) and a long term goal (1 year or longer).short term goals are steps to achieve your long term goal.
