Two weeks ago, me and my class went to the makerspace and made a triangular prism as a challenge. It was fun and awesome making it!
Have you ever felt something bad or good? Well, I did!! I did some games about the nervous system with my group. The nervous system is where you feel something that goes through your nerves to brain back to the part you touched. What i found interesting to learn about is the spine and nerve cells are connected, because I got to learn that the nerve cells transfer the signal from the spine to the brain back down, without the spine you couldn’t feel anything. Try the games at home!! Down description!
Games About the Nervous System:
- Deer and the dark forest, How to play: 3 players at lease. One player will need a tail (can be a towel, napkin, or tissue for tail) and needs blind fold for the eyes, also that player needs to stand in the middle to sense the people around it and point and say “gotta”. The other players have to begin at the wall, then someone say “start” to begin. the players start sneaking to catch the one player’s Tail. if the one player sense you, you get caught, so be careful!!!
- Squeeze and sense, How to play: 3 players at least. Everyone sit on the floor and close their eyes. one player has a ball down. Everyone needs to hold hand, the first player squeezes the next player and if that next player feels it then squeezes the next player on and on and on until the last player gets the ball. ( Stopwatch more fun)
Today I went to the auditorium to see some G4 talk presentation from the teachers to get examples so we can get ideas for our next presentation that’s coming on October. Today i got some ideas from Mr. Papasite about his presentation. it was about superpowers of coding and creating gadgets like Batman. What i learned about his presentation is that he told a personal story that was added on to his presentation, he even research about information he needed for his presentation. All of those ideas can help me get ideas about how G4 talk will be like and can get ideas to our own presentation. If I were on stage talking, I think I will be nervous a bit but can be confident at the same time.
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.
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.
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!
