Netbook Reflection

My Netbook Reflections

This year I have really liked having my own netbook because I get more things done
than on my book.I also can type faster than writing.What I also like about
my netbook is that I can search the web for things like what is my weight on the moon.
I like having a netbook because it helps me with my learning  and I'm so lucky that I get to
use this device during school hours.

The things I don’t like about my netbook is the net work problem.The net work problem
makes my computer not function properly.My other thing is that when I press a letter
it appears in 5 seconds.

My most definitely best thing about my netbook is that we can edit our blog posters any time
instead of waiting for a turn on the Imac’s.My other opinion is that when we make mistakes
we can tidy it from a press of a button.What I also like is that when I write on my netbook
I don’t need to go and ask people for a pencil.

Furthermore having a Netbook has meant that I can search things on the net more faster.
I also can get my google presentation done,and also can write interesting stories.My
maths whizz has been teaching lots of strategies and my study ladder has made my maths typing
more faster.

My biggest challenge having a netbook was charging it every night.Definitely my other biggest
challenge was trying to get my work finished.

Melbourne Storms VS Warriors
“WOW” Did you ever thought that the Warriors would make it to the Grand Finals. I’ll give you a guess, on Saturday night the New Zealand Vodafone Warriors came face to face against Melbourne Storms at AMI stadium in Melbourne. The Vodafone Warriors had to win the game by using great defence. The Warriors kicked off, on the 20th minute the first team to score a try was the Melbourne storms second row Sika Manu. By half time the scores were 14 - 12. The game was close and with 10 minutes left the Warriors half back Sean Johnson passed
the ball out wide to the center Lewis Brown try just before full game which made the Warriors in the lead. At full time the scores were 20 -12. Next week the Warriors are coming face to face against the Manly Sea Eagles at ANZ Stadium in Sydney.
