As I was purchased from the shop I was living happily with my owner. When he first put me on I was really excited because I have never been worn before. The next day he put me on, I was so surprised because I had no idea of where he was going to take me, he went outside and he started walking, we went somewhere to place that I couldn’t even describe, he was walking and I was sang along, then I stopped because there was something ahead of me that was calling me to come closer, I was trying to stop him but it was to late I went under the mud it was horrible, I couldn’t breath. First I couldn’t even survive through this hideous mud, I was scared of what he would do to me. I was covered in this  disgusting mud, while he was walking I was crying for help, then he came to this interesting thing I could not describe it but it did not look nice, it barked, I got scared it came all the way up to me and dribbled on me, “Eww that’s disgusting.” Than I turned around, and I saw my owner coming , he picked me up and put me into the locker room which was filled of shoes, then they started talking to me. I could smell the disgusting smell of the dog, I could hear the people talking on the little objects, I could taste the slimy dog dribble inside my mouth, I could see the people walking past me texting on their little objects , then I could feel my owner touching me with his muddy hands. Then these other people that looked old saw me and told my owner to go and put the shoes in your locker where it was supposed to be, then he put me in his locker and these friendly shoes was talking to me again, I talked and talked and talked until I was able to get to know them better. Then after awhile I was able to call them “ My Family.”

Blue Whale

The blue whale is a type of mammal called a cetacean and is a type of baleen whale. The scientific name for the blue whale is the Balaenoptera muscolus. Blue whales are by far the biggest animals in the world. Even the biggest dinosaur that ever lived doesn't come close in size to the blue whale.

To eat, blue whales filter their food through stiff, bony, comb-like teeth called baleen plates. Their main diet is krill (small creatures that are less than 2 cm in size). A blue whale can eat up to 3,600 kilograms of krill a day during its peak consumption period. Blue whales catch their food by diving down to about 500 meters below the surface.

Blue whales are found in open oceans from the icy waters of the extreme Southern Hemisphere to the Aleutian Islands off Alaska at the northern boundary of the Pacific Ocean. Summers are spent in polar waters because food production is higher there.

Blue whales are simply enormous. Their heart is the size of a small car. A blue whale aorta (the main blood vessel) alone is large enough for a human to crawl through. They can weigh over 200,000 kilograms! Female blue whales are generally larger than males. Blue whales are light bluish gray on their dorsal side and mottled gray whitish on their bellies. Some have yellowish bellies.
Endangered species

The worldwide blue whale population is not known, however, blue whales are considered endangered according to the U.S. Endangered Species Act. For many years blue whales were hunted extensively for their large quantities of baleen, blubber, and meat. Although blue whales are protected, their populations show few signs of recovery.
Blue whales are large mammals that spends their time in the icy oceans.  They only eat krill and are not a threat to any other creature in the ocean.  Blue whales face the risk of extinction if humans continue to hunt them for their baleen, blubber and meat.

Today I was learning about how to unpack the structure of information reports. My learning intentions was to understand the structure of an information report. Doing activity was quite interesting because it was better getting to know better about the Blue Whales.

Preflix Word: Sub

Sub Paragraph

As the submarine submerged through the subzero temperatures of the ocean, The captain called to the other subordinate subjects who had been listening to Mariah Carey searching for subliminal messages. While they had gone more subterranean that they had crashed into a subway. Through this whole commotion, the cook had been in the bathroom reading the subtexts of the latest Woman’s Weekly.

Today for writing we had to work collaborate with my classmate to do this activity. For this we had to work on a word wall to gather all of the words that begins with sub. Firstly we had gather the words that begin with sub from a dictionary and it has to do something with under or below. This was quite an interesting task to do because we had find words from the dictionary and put it onto a google drawing. After that was all finished we had to make a paragraph that had to make a story using the sub words. I think that my group and I have work quite well as we were helping each other out.
