Home learning Due 2/5


Welcome back and I hope you are looking forward to term 2 (if not, just remember you'll be on holiday in another 10 weeks!).

This week I've given you extra time to get the holiday home learning completed :)

I also want you to comment on other class members blogs, because everyone likes getting comments.  Give them decent comments too - not stink one liners like "This looks fun".  You can comment on their old posts if you like, it doesn't have to be the latest one.  Try comment on at least 5 peoples blogs and make sure to visit and comment on someone's that you don't really know; the people in your class have been putting together some pretty cool stuff.

Have a great first week back,
-Miss Kelly

Term 1 Holiday Homework Due 2/5

Prezi Presentation and a Photo Essay

1. Prezi Presentation:

Make a Prezi presentation about your holidays.  Mind map what you did, share information and add pictures.
The site is easy to log in with using Facebook.  Once you've finished making your Prezi presentation put the link up on your blog.
If you can't figure out how to use Prezi, google some tutorials or look up some of the videos on you tube.  Add something to your presentation each day so you don't forget what you've done each day :)

2. Photo Essay:
You need to produce a photo essay on a topic of your choice.
Don't know what I'm on about?  Let Wikipedia enlighten you...
"A photo-essay (or photographic essay) is a set or series of photographs that are intended to tell a story or evoke a series of emotions in the viewer. A photo essay will often show pictures in deep emotional stages. Photo essays range from purely photographic works to photographs with captions or small notes to full text essays with a few or many accompanying photographs. Photo essays can be sequential in nature, intended to be viewed in a particular order, or they may consist of non-ordered photographs which may be viewed all at once or in an order chosen by the viewer"
So, you could make one about one of your days during the holidays, an event or a place you've visited.
