Multiplication Strategies

My Reflection

I have been learning to use the doubling &  halving strategy , Place value  & compensation . 
        I found the doubling and halving strategy easy because i knew what to do.
I found the place value  strategy easy because i remembered what to do .
I found the compensation strategy hard but in the end i did it !
My next step is to listen to the compensation strategy better!

My speech

Kaimanawa horses
Kia ora  i’m olivia and i’m here to talk to you about the kaimanawa horses. did you know wild horses have inhabited the central North Island since the 1870s. WOW  thats a long time.

Part 1
Pressure from land development [which is caused by us]  increases competition with the activities of people  hunting and most things  we do  drives down the number of wild horses and now the Kaimanawa horses are on the edge of extinction .

Part 2
Here is another sad thing  All the Kaimanawa horses that are rounded up in the muster that do not get purchased will sadly be slaughtered, this is what we want to prevent.

Part 3
did you know Horses get hunted especially if they are cream , white or have silver manes.If you want to help you can adopt  kaimanawa horses at farms where they are trained to obey us !!!

Well this is my conclusion I hoped I have convinced  you guys  in anyway to  help the Kaimanawa horses and BYE !!!


I found it tricky to find out facts for my speech because when I try looking up sites for my speech there was hardly any sites I found it hard to put my speech together but in the end I did a good speech.

Cry of the Taniwha Prejudice Example

Reflection :
Over the past term we have been reading a book called  Cry of the Taniwha. I found this easy because I knew the character Skulla really well in the story.   My next step is to use a prejudice template on a different story.
