swimming with sharks

WALT: Scanning for information with my knowledge to support inferences I make when reading.

Swimming with sharks is dangerous.   A teenage girl from the village of       Mo'unga One would not agree.   This week we read a story that related to a  \legend.  The legend meant people from a village could swim with sharks and be safe.

We had to think about the different characters and why they responded the way they did.   I had to put myself in their shoes to see how they felt.   

I've learned that legends can sometimes give people confidence and also make them feel safe where some people would feel scared and in danger.


  1. Hi Angelo, you have done a great job in putting yourself in the character's shoes. How do you feel about sharks?

  2. Tino pai to mahi Angelo! Your responses in today's conference group was great! You motivated others to share their ideas too.
