We have started the year with our unit, Independent Me.
So far, an important fact I learned was we should make our own healthy choices.
The most interesting activity was when went to crescent mall because we got to choose our food we like so teachers can see our choices.
I had a hard time time with understanding the body systems and digesting raw body parts.
I would still like to learn about the other other systems.
I think it’s important for me to learn about body systems because if we didn’t, we would not know what foods do to us.
This, week in math, we started solving two step word problems. This is a word problem that has two steps.
Before I learned about two step problems in second grade I was still a little bit confuse.
After trying it, I know more about how to do it using two steps.
I am not confuse but I am completely confident doing it.
This week in math, we learned how to decompose. This is a strategy you can use to help you find area of a rectangle.
Before I learn decomposing, I didn’t know much about it and how to do it. The steps was hard and confusing.
After the lesson, I know the steps of decomposing and understand it more and it became easier for me.
In Book Creator, I am a making eBook about Basketball and learned a structures of a book like Dos and Don’t, Pros and Cons… It is turning out good.
I am good at typing.
Finding good pictures.
Hard finding good facts.
Hard thinking of fonts that fit.
Yesterday we had a Design Challenge, our challenge was to make vehicle with 2 straws, 4 bottle caps, 4 labels, 4 rubber bands, and a bunch of toothpicks and lastly 2 ping pong balls.
I think our team did a good job at designing the vehicle.
I wonder how the straw help our vehicle move easily.
Today we visited our EC buddies from Ms. Elaine’s . We spent time with our buddies by playing on the EC playground.
This year I hope my buddy learns how to take photo on the iPad. I also hope he will know how to help the keep the environment clean.
To help my buddy learn to take photos on the iPad, I could show where to go on iPad and what you should press. Another thing I could do is show my buddy how to keep the environment clean by showing my buddy what to pick up and what not to pick up.

Yesterday was DragonTopia Parents, Principals, and 4th and 5th graders visited our rooms. Our goal was to change their perspectives about our topics.
First, they filled in the “know” chart. Here is a comment that I thought was interesting:
Soldiers dedicate their lives to fight for their nation.
I think they wrote that because they were in the army.
After our activity, they wrote on the” learned” chart so we could see if their perspectives changed. Here is a comment I thought was cool:
Soldiers have to be fit to served their country.
I think they wrote that because that because I showed them the fitness test.
Today my team set up our Dragon topia Room.
We work it out in a simple way. I also like that when my team work together.
I didn’t like when I reminded one of my team member to stop wondering around and do work. I also didn’t like when my friends play with stethoscopes.
