Spend, Share, Save

You can either spend, share or save money. But it is up to you whether which one you want to do. You can do anything with money, but you have got to remember is to spend, share and save money wisely.

Let’s begin with spending money.  Here are some things children my age could possibly spend money on.
Phone, Head phones, Food, A bag, shoes, A game, book, pencils, stationery, clothes.

Now we move into what would be worth saving your money for.  Here are some examples of what I think are worthy of saving money for.
Clothes, Shoes , house , laptop, car ,  Phone,  going overseas,  getting glasses if you can’t see, a bed, food.

Finally we come to explaining why people would share their money.  The first reason...
Why people share money is because that person they gave the money to did something for them, or it could be that person's birthday you gave the money too. You would also give people money to help them for example like homeless people, or people that have been kicked out of there house.

Another reason to share your money may be...
Because you care for that person or maybe because you haven’t seen that person in a while that you feel like giving them money. There is nothing wrong sharing your money with anyone, as long as you trust them spending it on things that you know that the money is worth spending on.
In spending, saving and sharing money it is important to set spending goals to guide yourself.  A goal helps you to
  1. Achieve that goal that you have set for yourself
  2. Accomplish things
3. Push yourself

When considering how you will spend, save and share your money it is important to decide...
What you are going to spend your money on? and what or who you are going to share it on, and last but not least, what are you going to save your money for?

What is the one thing you would spend your money on right now? Clothes and shoes.

What is the one thing (goal item) that you are going to try to save up for? A better house for my parents and for myself.

Australian Countdown

This is a picture that I have remade for maths. The first thing we did with the picture, was to look at it and see what is wrong with it. The 1st thing that was wrong with it is that the single price is $1.98 and it says any 2 for $5. $1.98 + $1.98 = $3.96.

The 2nd thing that was wrong with the photo is that it says avocado but at the bottom it has red capsicums.

An island in time

  1. What parts of the interview link back to the other part of the book? There are parts of the interview that explains what some plans for the island  are and how important it’s history is.
  2. How does this help you to understand what Matt is doing?** It helps me understand by giving some facts and sentences which talks about what has happened to the island of some/matiu.
  3. What parts of the interview give you new information? New information is given for example where it states that 140 000 trees are replanted and everything is safe there and that you can not steal anything from their till this day.
  4. what is your opinion of the way the island has been used over the years? That the island must have been a scary place to be and that it must have felt like living in a world where you can’t have freedom in the past. √√
  5. Mrs Tele'a is wondering what biodiversity means. (Wouldn’t a mix of native and introduced plants be diverse?) It means a variety of plant plant and animal life.
  6. Do they have electricity on the island? yes, Or cars and other vehicles? No, How could we find out? By researching and reading this book, looking up pictures to see if any cars or vehicles will show in the picture, ask people.  (any other ways?)
  7. What would “living in harmony” be like on the island?  It would be a nice and peaceful island where everyone is happy and at peace.
