Creating things for Matariki

This week we have been learning about Matariki. 
This DLO (Digital Learning Object) is a photo of some photos where we made stars (whitu) out of colourful beads. We experimented with different patterns and colours.

What I enjoyed doing...
"Looking at my masterpiece when it was done" ~ Vaughn-Dean.
"Playing with the playdough. We used different tools to make it in to whatever we wanted." ~ Jade.
"I enjoyed watching everybody having fun when they were creating" ~ Twinkles.

What I found challenging...
"Placing the beads in the right place within the pattern because they kept falling out" ~ Lexus.
"Gluing the glitter on to the leaves because sometimes it was difficult to get the right amount of glue without making a mess" ~ Kairo.
"It was challenging cleaning up all the beads because they kept bouncing and falling on the ground" ~ Ocean-Lee. 

What I might do differently next time is...
"Next time I might use the beads on the floor so they don't roll away" ~ Ocean-Lee.
" Make the star more colourful" ~ Lincoln.
"Next time I could use tweezers to help put the beads in to the right places" ~ Samicia.
