2. What did you like and what was an unexpected surprise at Cat Tien
I heard there were gibbons who were going to sing but it was still surprising when they sang a song. I really enjoyed the bonfire because of the marshmallows.
3. How does Cat Tien connect to our unit about sustainability?
Cat Tien showed us how beautiful the world can be if we make it sustainable. Another reason is because it shows how they are being sustainable.
Describe what Close Reading is
Close reading is when you read something carefully and you read them a couple of times to understand what the book is saying.
Did you actually read the text 3 times?
I read the text 3 times when I was close reading.
Did you read the text again before filling out the 3 sections, or did you look at #2 and #3 and just try to answer them without rereading the entire text?
I read the text again before filling in the sections I had to answer.
What is a Main Idea? Can you give an example in your explanation?
The text I was reading main idea was ecosystem because on the 3 pages I was reading it was talking about what is in the ecosystem for example the book said something like community is group of things in the ecosystem.
How can Close Reading help you…think about heading to middle school and high school…
Close reading helps you understand your book and remember your book and it also helps you see things you missed.
Today we started a new unit and it is called green dragons. In this unit’s first day we learned about sustainability and that is what the units about. Sustainability means to maintain and in this unit we are gonna talk about maintaining the earth.
I wonder are we actually going to do things to maintain earth. If we are gonna actually maintain the earth a idea to save earth is go pick up trash for lesson.
Me and my group have chosen to make a security system for our computer lock box. When ever someone opens the lock box and the security system is on a buzzer buzzes and a light turns red. we chose to make this, so if someone finds the key are computers they aren’t gonna be stolen hopefully. This mostly works for people who get scared and run but if they choose to steal one computer we will know cause reseting is manual.
In math we learned that if you multiply with decimals, sometimes the answer will be lower than the decimals you are multiplying with. We also learned how to multiply a number with a decimal. We did a activity with base blocks for multiplying decimals with numbers. here is a picture of the base block activity:
In our class we have been doing some research about our non fiction books. So far I have researched on kidsinfobit.com for information and I found a little bit of information. The most challenging part was getting information because I only found two articles. What I am excited about is starting to write my book because I want to put some jokes in my book. I wonder if there is gonna be two or more answers to my questions.
Our class played a math game, It is a game where you have to get one with decimals and when I got eight I only three more cards. To estimate my answer I only counted the 0.9,0.8,0.7,0.6 and more tenths because their the closest to one. That’s Why think tenths are easier then hundredths. I’m pretty sure someone’s strategy was to get as many cards as they can.
In are class we learned about character traits. Character traits mean a person’s speciality for example I look like I’m strong that would be a external trait and I’m fast would be a internal trait.
