This blog is a reflection of this week in school. We did lots of things like making lanterns with our EC buddies. My favorite is the tet assembly.
Things that went well was finishing the letter in art because we get to make a post about our letter in Pages.
Things that went well was when we played scooter games in P.E because it’s like your ankle is exercise to run backwards fast.
Things that were challenging was when a person climbed on a long stick because it was violence to see.
Things that were challenging was when the lion showed its butt in front of my face.
This week in math, we started solving 2 step problems. This is a word problem that 3AR class did by doing our first attempt and second attempt.
Before I learned about the 2 step problem, I knew how to make number models.
Before I learned about the 2 step problem, I know how to calculate number models.
After trying it, I know how to model and count models too!
After trying it, I know how to write about what know already and what I need to know.
This week in math, we learned how to decompose. This is a strategy you can use to help you model multiplication above 10.
Before I learned decomposing, I knew how to break two numbers from big factors and multiply small numbers with it like this, without using rectangle.
I knew how to add tens first then the ones
After the lesson, I know how to multiply and decompose multiplication above 10.
I know how to find the area of a rectangle.
Yesterday and today 3AR learned about non-fiction story structure and learned few section of the story and to be better at non-fiction writing. We wrote them down on an app called Book Creator.
I like to write on Book Creator because it’s fun and awesome!
I like to write for our first draft because we can try to learn better on our topic.
I didn’t like when the teacher tell us extra things to add on.
I didn’t like when it was long to plan with.
Yesterday in science, we had a design challenge. It was about 3ar9 class was making a creation with material the teacher gave us and set the timer to 10 minutes. Then we went to the hallway. We try to blow our creation to see how far it is.
I think my creation was heavy so it did not move too much. I was so uncomfortable to do that, but I feel ok.
I wonder how the creation wasn’t working for me so badly. I guess I should let Woo Sin do it, not me.
Today, Ms. Ruttger’s class came to see their EC buddies in ms. Eliane’s class. We spent time with our buddies by going out side and taking photos of our buddies.
This time of year, I hope my buddy use iPad with me. I also hope she will smile and have fun with my iPad.
To help my buddy to learn how to use an iPad, I could try to help my buddy to draw on iPad and to use cool apps. Another thing I could do is build blocks. Next time I see my buddy, I will remember to teach my buddy great things we can do!
Yesterday was Dragon Topia! Our parents, school principals, teachers, and 4th and 5th graders visited the 3rd graders room, to learn new perspective, to have fun and enjoy, to explore, and to learn about 3rd graders’ topic.
First, the visitors come to fill in what they already know about our topic, we want to learn about their perspective and what they think.
Here is the comment,
“They are entertainers”
After they finished the activities we have, they write down what they learned about our topic. We also want to know about about their new perspective!
Here is the comment,
“It is hard to be confident”
I think they wrote it because they think about that and it’s true!
Today I and my team work out very well. I love the way my team works out.
I like the way my team helped each other and have fun.
I like when we decorated the room very well.
I did not like when we have to remind people not to cross the wire many times.
I did not like when people crowed around our room, like they quit their team and come join our team.
