    These are some funny word work sentences espically the first one when the bulldozer picks up the green apple it made me giggly! I like the way you have set out your word work! But maybe next week you could make all the colours the same because that takes my attention away from the word work! He whetu koe! (Your a star!)

    I like how all you're sentences are very funny! Next time make sure that you don't put years on the origin bar because origin means where it comes from. I also really like how you have added in colours to make it bright and colourful. Did you enjoy doing this activity?
