# Homework-Week 9- O.W.I.

In class we have been working on O.W.I. responses in our reading. This week we would like you to look at the image above and write an O.W.I response.
You need to write 2 Observations, 2 Wonderings (questions, that are linked to your observations) and 2 Inferences (linked to your observations and wonderings.)
Make sure your observations are descriptive and use emotive works to describe what you can see. Observations are factual. Only describe what you can actually see.
Please remember your inferring are like predictions that MUST include evidence from the picture. Eg- You think ..?..because you know…?…
Good luck.

I observe canoes. Who do they belong to? I think they belong to the owner of the town.
I observe boat houses. I wonder if they move around or do they stay where they are? I infer that they go away because I can see other house boats moving away.

1. max says:

A little bit more writing but every think else is good.

1. Hayley says:

I think the same Max. I think that Lusanda you need to have a traffic writing what has else 2 or 3 paragraphs. Maybe have some headings like Observe, Wonders and your inference in paragraphs though you writing.

2. ABBY-LEE says:

I can observe that their are lots of tiny houses.
I wonder who owns these tiny houses?
I infer that these tiny houses belong to the person how lives their and I think that that person has lots of people in their family.

I observe that these houses are boats but they are floating.
I wonder why the houses are floating on the water?
I infer that these houses are allowed to move because I can see that some of the houses are in front of other hoses.

Houses everywhere-observation
1I wonder why there are all these big houses everywhere.

2.I wonder who lives here.

3.I wonder why they live here.

The hoses are there because people might not have anywhere to live.

I think that people who live here are on a holiday.

They might live here because they don’t have anywhere to live.

OBSERVATIONS:
1. Houses are surrounded by a body of water.
2. There is land in the middle of the “village”.

QUESTIONS (open ended or thick):
1. Why are the houses surrounded by a body of water?
2. How is that piece of land not covered by water?

INFERENCES:
1. I think that the houses are surrounded by water because there might have been a flood. My evidence is that there is fully dry land about 4 kilometers away so if that is dry land then the water village would have been completely dry as well. But at the moment it is covered by water.
2. I think that there is dry land in the middle of the village because it might have been a hill before the ”flood”. My evidence is that when a flood occurs usually unless the water rises to at least 10 meters then you would be able to see the top of the hill which is probably what happened in this image.

11. Chelsea says:

Observations:
1. The little piece of land wasn’t flooded.
2. The village has had a massive water rise or a flood.

Questions:
1. Why wasn’t it flooded like everything else?
2. Was the village flooded or was it a water rise?

Inferences:
1. I really think that it wasn’t flooded because the rest wasn’t flooded I can see the doors of what I think is meant to be a café, but the little land could be a landing point for some of the canoes or the boats.
2. Its a bit too big to be a flood so its probably a water rise because if it was a flood it is extremely rare for the ‘flood’ to get up to the roof.

12. 1. Little villge
2.Water that surrounds the place

1.Why is there a little village out of no where surround by water?
2.Where did all of the water come from that surrounds the houses?

1.I think there’s a little village to help people live if they ownly have boats when they’re on a holiday or people live there and go to the main island for for for their family.
2. I think all of the water came from the ocean or a river that helps everyone that is on vacation when they go over seas if they go to that place since the villages are so big they must fit lots in them.

13. Mahnee says:

Observations
1. The small and tiny village was in a very deep flood.
2. The village had a heavy rainfall or some type of flood.

Questions:
1. How did the village get flooded?
2. How did the village flooded?
3. Did the village get heavy rainfall?

1. I think the village was flooded because there is only 1 diminutive patch of land which is in the middle of the village. But the doors of the houses or the cafés are just showing beneath the calm and lapping water. I think this because if it was it a water rise then the water would have been up to the top of the roofs.

2. It’s a would have to be a flood because there is no sign of a flowing river nearby the village and floods occur whenever there has been very heavy rain or if a river over floes. I think this because in the photograph there was no sign of any rivers so it must be a flood from heavy rain.

KEY WORD MEANING

Occur: Means to happen or come about.
Diminutive: Means very small or much smaller than usual

Great job Mahnee

14. josh says:

Observe: I can see an oval with grass on it in the ocean with a lot of cages.
Wonder: Why did they design this place with all these cages on the ocean?
Infer: I think they did this to get more people come and visit this place. They will try to get more people so they get more money so they can upgrade their places.
Observe: There is a county where you can see at the back of this picture.
Wonder: Why did they make this place so far away from the county?
Infer: So they have to spend more money on boats and that to get there. They did it to get more money for their self’s to just expend on it.

15. max says:

Observation: the homes are floating. On the water

Wonder: why are the homes floating on the water how can they stay on top of the water.

Infer: the homes could be floating on the water on their own. Or the homes might have some think under it.

16. CandAce says:

O: I can observe lots of tiny houses floating on water.
W:I wonder why there are lots of tiny houses floating on the water?
I: The houses might be there because they are homes for people on water.

O: I can observe a small island
W: Why is there a small island
I: The island might be there because people living in the small houses might want to go for a trip to the island.

17. Tristan Platt says:

OBSERVATIONS:
I can see sharp, pointy things that look like roofs off a house and the water has flooded the town.
I can see little bits of green land sticking out of the blue blooming water waiting for breath.
I can see very tiny canoes, gliding through the dark glistening water, looking for a nice bit of land to sail upon.
I can see people on the little bit of grassland with their canoes trailing behind them, waiting for another ride around, in the water, to yet find another bit of land.
I can see the greenness of the trees being ready to be sucked up as the water grows higher and higher exponentially.
WONDER:
How did the water raise exponentially waiting to suck up all the dry land?
How will the people survive without having to go out to sea?
INFER:
I think the people will eat the fruits out of the trees and boil the water for it to become clean.
I think that the canoes will float away with their resources and they will end up dying of starvation or no water.
