Meeting Will.I.Am - Reported By Faith and Mavis

Mavis,Taylor,Jayden, and I got the chance to experience another way of  learning with the Manaiakalani. A fantastic piece of news which came to us as "Someone donated some money to the Manaikalani education trust" Well we found out that someone was Mr Will.I.Am
I hope you enjoy reading my awesome experience below 
Please leave a comment!!!

Thursday 6 May 2013, was well... the best day of our life!!! I’m not being dramatic or anything but a group of students got the chance to see that Mr.William James Adams,otherwise known as Will.I.Am . He has donated $100,000 to the Manaiakalani Education Trust. We were told at first that it was an anonymous donater but when we arrived we got the news that it was Will.I.Am himself who had donated the money.It was something worth experiencing.

When the cheque was presented we were thankful and honored for his helpful donation towards the Manaiakalani Education Trust. His inspirational words motivated us all as students to keep moving forward in life.

The words that he preached today was "My mission is to help transform disadvantaged youths, and I hope my donation to the Manaiakalani Trust will help these young people gain the skills they need for tomorrow's job market."

We acknowledged that fact the he shared a small portion of his life with us about growing up with  only his mum to raise him and about the fact that music and arts literally saved his life. He told us that his dream was to look after his mother and siblings.

When he told us what his dream was we felt like we could do something with our life. Meeting or hearing him wasn’t just hearing or seeing him as a celebrity but we got to hear and see him as a person who motivated himself to succeed in life.

We came back to school feeling glad we got to be part of something worth remembering, we got to be part of something we could tell our friends with pride and experience.

My Reading Group Goals for Term 2

After sitting our e-asTTle test this term we analysed our groups pathways which helped us identify our group reading goals for this term. Here are my reading goals:

  • WALT locate specific information by using the skills of find, select and retrieve. 
  • WALT I identify word classes to help us understand the meaning of unknown words.
  • WALT think about the way the text is written (structure) to help us summarise the story in order using grammatically correct language and sentence structure. 
  • WALT use inferencing skills at a level 5 standard.
