Summer Learning Journey

This is my Summer Learning Journey week 3 day 4 activity. I hope you like it.


  1. Hey there Alodia! My name is Billy, I am from the Summer Learning Journey team.
    I'm happy to see how many activities you have completed already! Keep it up.

    I've enjoyed reading your acrostic poem for the Southern Lights. I like some of the language you've used, such as 'inked', 'hovering', 'glowing'. It's cool that you didn't just write one word for each letter as well, it makes it much more interesting and entertaining to read.

    Do you enjoy writing poetry? What are some of your favourite types of poetry?

    Thanks Alodia,

    1. Hello Billy,
      thank you for commenting on my blog Billy. I like to write those type poems that rhyme. In my week 4 day 1 activity, I have made a rhyming poem. Can you figure out which words are rhyming?

  2. Hi Alodia,

    It's Leslie here, reading your blog from my home in Canada as a member of the Summer Learning Journey team. You're putting a lot of effort and thought into these activities - well done, you!

    You've done a really good job of re-telling the story of the Seven Stars of Matariki! It's a cool way to think of how those particular stars appear in the sky, isn't it? I really admire the ancient peoples who created the myths we enjoy today. They must have been very observant and thoughtful people, wanting to have explanations for how the world came to be.

    And I really like your description of the cloud you chose to focus on. I agree, it does look like a spinning top and/or a tornado! I think it's a good idea for us to keep our eyes on the sky each day, actually, as there's much to be learned from the clouds and their formations. Many of us rely on tv or the internet to tell us about our day's weather, but we could learn a lot by just watching the cloud patterns as they are good indicators of what's coming. When my husband and I are on canoe trips we are always very watchful of the sky, wanting to be aware of any signs of storms that might be coming our way.

    I hope you're enjoying lots of sunny days during your summer holidays and I look forward to continuing to read your blog. Good work!!!
