Summer learning journey: maui and he giant fish.

Today we did a practice activity for the Summer Learning Journey.
First we read the story Maui and the Giant Fish.
Then we wrote 3 facts we learned from the story.
Here are my facts:

1:  his brothers always made excuses that he could not come fishing with them.

2: maui lifted up the north island with his popas jaw bone but his, brothers never wanted
him to come fishing but how he got to go fishing was that he snuck in the boat.

3: the south island is maui’s canoe the canoe was used for using fishing.

the thing that was challenging was that we had to get facts about maui.

the thing i would do different is that i will use more punctuation.
