My Five Made up words - By Ben

These are my five words that I made up for SLJ(Summer Learning Journey)day 1.

Shrumble - Something shaking

Fungle - Something dirty

Gargoggle - Swallowing/Gulping

Kolapa - Snow flakes falling even though it is not winter

Sitola - Sitting on the ground


  1. Kia ora Benjamin,

    It is lovely meeting you! I am so excited that you are joining us for the Summer Learning Journey 2019-2020. Have you done this programme before? This year I am so excited that I get to read & reply to the Manaiakalani blogs, last year I was in the Kaikohekohe cluster. So this is my second year with the Summer Learning Journey! I’m really looking forward to summer, aren't you? In my spare time I like spending time at the beach and hanging out with my friends.
    I also love taking my dog for walks although only in the early mornings or late evenings as it is getting quite warm! What are you looking forward to doing this summer?

    You have made some awesome words! I really like ‘sitola’- sitting on the ground. It is hard to think of new/original words, as we automatically link words to what we already know.

    In the future please make sure you are completing what the activity is actually asking you so you are eligible for full points :) The activity is asking you to write a character description of the BFG using your descriptive words. But keep up your awesome posts Ben, can’t wait to read more!

    Nga mihi,

  2. Kia ora Benjamin!
