In room 2 we have been doing interactive writing.  Fiona writes and we write too.  We have been learning to use fast words around the room to help us record our ideas.  We are also learning to leave finger spaces between our words, so that we can share our stories with others. 

Fiona is impressed, as we try our best.  This our first Tohora nui whale.  

And here is our writing ...


  1. Fantastic writing! You are all so very clever - isn't it awesome to be able to join different letters to create different words and then to write them yourselves!!! Keep up the good work.
