Cyclone Lusi hits New Zealand by Elisa P

Cyclone Lusi hit new Zealand in the weekend. It souned like owls and dogs outside of my  house. Cyclone Lusi has the strongest winds and the most heaviest rain. The eye is in the middle of the cyclone. It is the strongest part of the storm. The cyclones the strongest over the water. When it gets closer to land it gets less powerful.

  1. It was great to see you so interested in the cyclone Elisa. You researched it on the computer, and talked about it every day. I like that you are taking an interest in the things you hear on the news now.

    I think Miss Chalmers would like to see the scrapbook page you did the journalling for too: http://www.sweetshoppecommunity.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=316789&title=year-3&cat=500

    1. Oh Elisa, I love it! What a special thing, to be a part of the wonderful scrapbooking your Mum does for you. I liked reading the part about doing lots of art - I enjoy helping you get even better, you are an awesome artist!

  2. I had some help from Miss Chalmers. By dogs I mean wolves. I thought the cyclone was going to be a lot stronger than it was. I felt actually quite happy that it wasn't so bad. I wasn't actually that scared, but I thought I was going to be a lot more scared. This is the link to the cyclone tracker that we used. http://earth.nullschool.net/

    1. You didn't get very much help from me, Elisa. Maybe just a little bit to help you write down your ideas. I was so impressed that you could type your story out all by yourself! You were successful in writing today because you wrote facts using the 5Ws (who, what, when, where, why). I like your editing now too - you're right, I think "wolves" makes a much clearer picture in the readers mind. Well done!

  3. Elisa I really enjoyed reading this piece. The winds were very strong at our house too. We live very close to the Manukau harbour in a house on the hill so when the wind was hitting our house it was shaking the skylights in the roof. I am pleased that it wasn't as bad as expected for Auckland.
