My dream Car and why

My dream car is a Lamborghini Huracan. There are a few reasons why it is and I’ll tell you why. The reason’s it is my favorite car is because of it’s engineering, it’s interior, how it looks outside, it’s speed, and how light or heavy it is.

Engineering- it’s engineering is just tremendous. The engine is a V-10 engine and it is used in mainly Porsche’s, Lamborghini’s, and more. V-10 engine’s are a lot less common than the V-8 and V-12 engines. The V-10 engine is a 10 cylinder piston engine.

Interior- The Lamborghini Huracan interior has leather, Carbon skin, and Carbon  fiber. There seats are made from microfiber suede. The interior is made with all of that and it makes it look like an actual masterpiece.

What is it like Outside the car- The Car outside has a lot of types of colors on them and also has Carbon Fiber on the outside as well. They have all colors on a Lamborghini Huracan and its very rare to find it with Carbon Fiber on it. Carbon Fiber on a Lamborghini Huracan is the most rarest thing you would be able to find.

Its speed- The Lamborghini Huracan Has speeds up to 310-325km an hour. It is a fast supercar and is one of the lowest types of cars that I’ve ever seen. In mph it is 192-201mph.

How heavy is it- The Lamborghini Huracan has a weight up to 3,424IB. It is a light car for a Lamborghini. The average weight of a Lamborghini is 3,472IB.

That is why the Lamborghini Huracan is my favorite and why.

Book Talks

Storytelling Week - Tell-A-TaleToday we are preparing our book talks.  Book talks are a sales-pitch for one of your favourite books.  Over the course of the schoolyear you have been reading books and posting them on our online reading log.  Now it is time to pick your favourite one, prepare a pitch, and deliver.

Using this template…

21.03.22 book talk – with example

…prepare your presentation.  It is only about 3 min.  This template is a place to plan your presentation, NOT to write a script that you read word for word.  Please carefully note the rubric.  You are marked for eye contact, engagement, and visuals.  Some kids just have a copy of the book or a photocopy of the cover, but kids that are doing a great job have more.  Bring in an item that your character would have, make your own cover to show us and explain it, or dress up like a character from the book…or talk like they would talk.  Be creative, and remember: you are trying to convince us that this is a great book to read.
