For the 2nd book club section, I have been reading Love, Stargirl. It is a book that is written by Jerry Spinelli. I recommend you to read this book because it is about a girl that has moved and left behind Arizona and her once boyfriend Leo. This book is everything about Stargirl’s life in letters to Leo over the year. Stargirl gets to meet new friends especially Perry Delloplane, Doosie, Alvina and Betty Lou. This book has humor, definitely awesome writing, lively characters and important lessons about Stargirl’s life. In addition, because of these reasons, I give this book 3 stars ( 1~4 ).
In the past few weeks, we were learning about the Age of Explore. We made ships for decoration in our class and made scripts with my partner Davina. My explorer is Bartolomeu Dias. This is a video of my partner and I when we were doing the play. We prepared the script by practicing with my partner making crops and practicing the lines. The script was about the Age of Explorer: Bartolomeu Dias. I am proud of my script because I memorized all of my lines and talked clearly. I feel like I could do better on talking louder and clearer. I would give my performance a 3 out 4 because my partner kind of forgot her lines. In addition, I really like Bomin’s group’s performance about Jeanne Barrett because it had humour, and entertainment.
Bartolomeu Dias’s boat is called Sao Cristovao. It is a boat when our explorer Dias, used for exploring lands. He was the one who sailed around the southernmost tip of Africa in 1488, reaching the Indian Ocean from the Atlantic, the first European known to have done so. These are the photos of the replica of the Sao Cristovao boat and a photo of the written knowledge of Bartolomeu Dias. He was born in the 1450, in Algarve Portugal and has died in the 1500, May 29. I enjoyed working on the boat and also researching about Dias with my partner, Davina.
This is the book I am reading for Book Club: Who Put that Hair in my Toothbrush?This book was very fun to read. I give this book 4 stars (1~4) because it is a great book that relates to 2 siblings that just doesn’t seem to get along with each other. Megin and Greg, battles with donuts, roaches and hair. In this book, the two characters talk about their story at school, house and more. There are a lot of love moments that are kind of weird. If you are a person that likes love stories and is curious about how it feels like having a sibling, you should definitely read this book.
Yesterday, was the Film Festival night! I really liked all the documentaries that all the 4th graders did. Also, I am really, really proud of my documentary that I did with my Banh Beo group!~ Something that I will do differently is to show more facts about Banh Beo in the documentary. Other thoughts that I have in mind is that the Film Festival should kind of be more~ INTERESTING and fun, like every group getting to present and performance how they did the documentaries. But of course it was mostly super fun!! here is my documentary, have fun watching it~~
We had a great time in the 5 field trips that we went. After we went to the field trips, we reviewed about the field trips and wrote a summary paragraph of the five field trips with Co Ha. This is the paragraph that I wrote in Vietnamese for the 5 field trips.
Today, we went to the Cresent River for the field trip. Our goal was to write a poem, sketch a drawing. The main part of our field trip was to dip a long fabric into the Bat River to make awesome art like what Lee Tracy a famous artist did. I think that everybody got to learn about team work and about the environment. I also learned about sustainability. It means having habitats that restore out environment. Another way saying what it means is, environmental science, the quality of not being harmful to the environment. I really want to thank Ms. Lee Tracy for the speech that helped us to learn a lot. I think that everyone had an amazing and fun field trip. These are pictures of my sketch, poem and more!
Last week, we went to three field trips. First, we went to the Water Puppet Show. Second, we went to the Ao Dai and the Herbal Medicine Museum that were interesting. third, we went to the Farm that was super fun and exciting. Also, we had a another field trip that was making and exploring the Vietnamese Traditional food, the exciting part was, we got to eat and enjoy the food that we made by ourselves! This is a video that I made about the four fascinating field trips that we went! Hope you guys enjoy seeing my video!
We went the the children Tree Farm. We planted rice, caught fish and pulled the vegetable that is called Morning Glory. We got to make a piggy bank that was very cool and cute!!! We got to go in the natural mud that was super gooey. It felt super weird but it was absolutely fun! In the mud we planted rice. We caught fish in the lake that were a lot! I definitely think that the field trip to the farm was fascinating and super super fun~
