What did I do well for my geometry art with Lynly... I think I did really well at staying between the lines.
But I think next time I could cut out my shapes a little bit better.

My backstroke video

WALT: backstroke effectively

voice over or written points of: 
“Here are some tips in how to swim backstroke: 
1. pointed toes, 
straight knees, 
kicking from your bottom, 
fingers together, 
bring your arm up straight and past your ear, 
pinky finger in first. 
Head relaxed in an upward position."

How am I going? I think I've been doing really well this term and I want to do more.

What am I doing well? sucking my tummy in when I push of the wall.
I can can kick really fast.
What do I need to work on? Making my pinkie go in first before my other fingers.
I need to work on

Astro He can sent bad people out and if you ask him to do a trick then he will ripe off your arm. Astro can chop a persons leg off with his own tail. And he can tear people into sreads with one scratch. 

Astro has a brown body and he has green patches on his paws from the woods. He has wild eyes that stare at people. His tail always stays up but never wiggles it.

 He is kind of like a quide dog to help people find thier way back home. He's always in a good mood well most of the time. Astro doesn't like licking him self cause he doesn't like fur that much. He always likes to get people's atention but all he gets is squirted with chilly sauce. He has
a lot of feelings inside of him but on the outside he's like a mean lion. I think that Astro is the king of 
the woods.
