Today is learning journeys. I went to school with my mom and dad and I’m sharing what I’m learning. First I told my mom and dad what my goal was at the parent teacher conference and then I went through the different subjects and did an activity with my mom and dad. First I was nervous but now I’m feeling better. My favorite subject was the super unit because I got to do an experiment.
The last 2 weeks we did many things. Like on February 14 was Valentine’s Day and we did an awesome activity and I made a Valentine’s fish. Another thing that happened this week is we started to write paragraphs about our own observations. On one of the nature walks we saw a giant lizard and we got a picture of the lizard. Today we did a sorting activity with our buddies and got to eat M&Ms after. Later we’ll get to watch the track and field meet.
This week we did our unit launch. We had 4 guest speakers for our unit launch which were “Jane Goodall “, Ms Fox, Ms Ronzetti and Mr Choi. Another thing that happened this week is a barn owl died on our campus and we got to look at it. One final thing that happened this week is Andrew built a 17 story base 10 tower.
My first weeks of 2017 have been busy. On my winter holiday I went skiing at Mt Bachelor with my cousins. At school lots of things have been happening. Like we got a new student named Ben. And Ms Weiss has been going to the hospital because she has problems with her hearing. One last thing that happened is we had Sports day. Something I’m looking forward on TET is I’m finally going to get to relax.
Today is the last day of school. In the morning we did a holiday rotation activity. I made an origami reindeer bookmark. Also today we celebrated Jia Chi’s birthday! The worst thing about today is the last day me and Andrew could finish the Rube Goldberg machines. My classmate Juhae is leaving to Korea forever. I really hope everyone has a wonderful holiday!!
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 class. 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 Jayden’s mom. This was very fun and I think we should do it again.
This week we did many things. One thing that happened this week is Thanksgiving. This morning I got to see Ms.Weiss’s parents by Skype to say Thanksgiving. Also last night me and my family celebrated Thanksgiving by eating lots of turkey. Another thing that happened this week is the kindergarten postal service started. The kindergarten postal service is when you can right letters to your friends.
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 really liked was the ice skating . I liked it because I got to ride on the seal and I learned about friction. There are many forces that make you stop and go.
A second thing I really liked was the tug of war because we played tug of war. I also liked tug of war because we got to make our own scenarios. I also learned about the force pull.
The third thing I enjoyed was when we got to take apart a spring scale. I enjoyed it because I got to draw a diagram of the spring scale. I also enjoyed it because I got to learn about what it does.

This week , our classroom went through many changes! We got some sofas, we moved some desks , and we brought in some cushions. A yoga mat was donated, and we have some tables that are different heights.Students get the choice to sit where they want to be comfortable so they can Do THEIR BEST WORK!!!
I think our new seating is awesome!! I also think this improvement will help me focus. I also think if I’m going to bring any cushions.
I wonder if there are going to have new rules. I also wonder if we’re going to have more sofas.
