Today we went to buddies to help them learn about graphs. We had M&Ms, a color sorting mat, a graph and a question sheet. The first step is to sort the color of M&Ms and it was quick as a flash, second we had to fill the graph, third we had to answer the questions on the questions sheet. But the best part of all is we got to eat M&Ms! Some buddy’s had trouble writing but I helped them so we could finish the sheet.
My first weeks of 2017 have been extreme. When I was on winter holiday I went to Dalat. It was super cold when I walked outside, especially at night when I take a walk. This week we have Sports day. We did a lot of relays, water activities, but I like getting wet the most. I am looking forward for TET is getting to see my flower trees.
This week we did a lot of things. Today we celebrated Jia – Chi’s birthday. We had holiday rotations and I went to Ms. Weiss’s class and Ms. Helen’s class. At Ms. Weiss’s class we made origami bookmarks and at Ms Helen’s class I made snowflakes. Sadly today is the last day we can see Juhae because she is moving to Korea after this. Happy holidays see you in 2017!
This week on Wednesday, we had a math morning. Some of our parents came to our classroom. First we showed our parents what a number talk looks like in our classroom. We showed them how to decompose a rectangle. Then we played math games! There were 5 different games to choose from. I played 2 games with Jia-Chi’s mom. I had a great math morning.
This week we played with dash. At first dash was like a baby, he didn’t really know much then. Dash is a robot that follows your commands. When we were playing with dash we had to make a code for dash to follow. Dash could make shapes by going around but we had to tape the pen on dash. Dash was really fun to play with. Dash goes crazy sometimes.
The last 2 weeks have been very exciting. We did many activities and had some special events. Here are 3 of my favorite events.
The first thing I liked that we did was the ice skating field trip. We got to do some some experiments and to ice skate. We went to the ice skating rink to learn about friction with Ms. Fox.
A second thing that I enjoyed was tug of war. We got a rope then we played tug of war. We played tug of war to learn the force of a push or pull.
The third thing I liked was the winter concert. We did the winter concert to show what we have learned in music lessons. At the music concert we sang and played our recorders.
Today’s Artifact: classroom photos
This week, my classroom went through a lot of changes! We got some sofas, we moved our desks, and we brought in some cushions. A yoga mat was donated, and we have some tables that are different heights. I get the choice to sit where I want to be comfortable so I can DO MY BEST WORK!!!
I think our new seating is really comfortable to sit on. I think that we get to sit wherever we want is a great thing. I also think that there’s a lot of places so we can have lots of choices.
I wonder if we will get some new sofas. I wonder if other stuff will also get donated.
Artifact: reflection video
On Tuesday, October 4, we had our DragonTopia celebration to end our perspective unit. This video is my reflection about DragonTopia.
Today I visited my EC buddy. We went on a shape hunt.
We did the shape hunt outside. At the end we also took a selfie together.
One thing that went well for me was my buddy found lots and lots of
great shapes. Another thing that went well was she went around with me and helped me find shapes.
One thing that was challenging today was my buddy did not really talk a lot so it was hard to understand what she wants to go.
Another thing that was challenging today was that my buddy went around but I had to ask her if it was a circle, square or rectangle.
