WE ARE FINALLY BACK!!!!!!!Do you have any questions for me about Cat Tien? I will answer it for u ^^

WE WENT ON A FIELD TRIP TO CAT TIEN!!!!!!😍😄

On the bus heading to Cat tien

It was an AMAZING and FANTASTIC trip! Some people were home sick but I wasn't. When we went there I learned what people in Cat tien does to save our environment and what are some sustainable solutions to save our world. The primate centre and the moon bear centre helps to save the endangered animals to protect them from getting killed.

The activity that I liked the most on the first day was Night Sensory Hike🌃 🌄.We walked through the street without flashlights and we listened to the animals/insects singing🎤.The stars ⭐️also looked really pretty and it was interesting to walk in the dark with only our night visions (No flashlights were allowed).

 

Also every night we were at the bonfire🔥 and on the first day the teachers performed and on the second day the students performed. We played some games🎮, talked about ghost👻 stories and we did a lot of different activities. When I was performing with (Anna, Jessi, Halia, Soo Bin, Isobel, Saki...), we told people ghost stories and Thuy Linh, who was a volunteer, was really scared😱 that she was screaming the whole time (she ruined our play a bit but it wasn't that bad). After the plays we ate marshmallows (We roasted them our selves) and we went back to our cabin🏠.

 

 

The activity that I liked the most on the second day was the Night Safari🌃. We went on a truck🚚 and we watched out for cool animals. We saw 3 female deer, 8 baby deer, 4 male deer, a moose, a rabbit🐰, a squirrel and a porcupine. We missed some of them because the truck was going really fast. When we were going back the wind🍃 was really strong so I thought I was freezing, but I still think that this activity was really exciting.

My best thing about this trip was all the fun activities! All the activities we did there was really exciting and fun. I liked the Night Safari, Night Sensory Hike, Bonfire and I also did yoga.

My worst thing about this trip was that there were so many bugs and we had to sit on the grass a lot so I got a lot of bug bites. P.S: You HAVE TO bring bug repellant.

I was sad when we had to leave Cat tien but I think I will remember all the fun activities and all the exiting things that we did at Cat tien!

My reflection after I came back from Cat tien was that I think that this trip was AWESOME! But I got really tired because we had to wake up early in the morning to hear the gibbons🐵 singing🎤 and see the sunrise🌅 so it was really tiring(The next day I slept for more than 11 hours, that was how sleepy, tired and how lazy we were there). Still we got to interact with the nature including the insects🐛( there were soooo many bugs🐛/insects in our room!Eg. spiders, ants🐜, lizards, centipedes, and one of the other room had a scorpion and a snakes)and we learned a lot about animals by going to the primate and moon bear centre. We also learned what are some sustainable solutions that the government does to help the animals and the nature (Making it GREEN🌲). After going to this trip, the word sustainable/sustainability came closer to us because when we interact with the nature and insects🐛 we were eco-freindly so I think the word sustain/sustainability cam closer to us (That is only my thought). Even though we had a lot of insects in our room, I think this trip was FANTASTIC so if you wanna go to Cat tien, wait until fifth grade comes!

This is my Element Rubric for my information report. I think I did well because I got an E. E is a good mark and I honestly tried my best in this report so I think I really did well. I think it made a huge difference from my first try till my final check.

Next time I do this again I will get a video that will show up in Ebooks, because I actually uploaded a video in ebooks but in my preview it didn't show up. I would like to change it next time.

Wednesday: I read a non-fiction book and read for 35 minutes.Close to my goal!😊

Thursday: I read a fiction book but I read for 40 minutes!!!!😃

My goal went really well because at first I thought I didn't do well but after a few days, I started getting closer to achieve my goal! I think I keep on doing this goal even if I don't have to log every single time. Next time when I have another goal, I think I will be way better than this time but I think I did really well this time!📚🙋

For Super Unit, we had to make our own experiment. We could do it in partners or on your own but I did it with Jessica. When we did this experiment, we had to write a proposal that talks about" Our RESEARCH QUESTION, HYPOTHESIS, MATERIALS, PROCEDURE".

This link is to me and Jessica's proposal.

Click Here

Then we had to bring all the equipments to school and we had to do the experiment. When we were done with our experiment, we had to make a google slide to talk about our experiment. (We had to make our own slide.)

I learned that when Coke and Mentos is put together and when they fizz, It's not a chemical reaction. It's called a physical reaction. 😯

For me the best part of the experiment was when I was shaking but then everything spilled. It was funny.😅

If we did this experiment again, I think we can make this experiment better by getting ready everything completely.

I really enjoyed making our own experiment because it was fun to do the experiment. I hope that we can do more experiments. I think it was a great unit!👍

Yesterday we had our grade 4 and 5 music🎶 concert!😝

I was really nervous because we I needed to do the MC and play the flute. It took a long time to prepare the show. But there was another problem that was going on in our class. Our class couldn't remember our classes part for the Henry Martin!😕

I was sooooooooo worried about it.😣 When we started to sing our song and it was our classes turn we all got nervous and everyone was shaking.😩 When we started to sing our part, our voices were a little quieter then the other classes but we till managed to do it! Hip hip hooray! Hip hip hooray! 😋😄

After our part was done and it was the other classes part, our class was all smiling and we were laughing because we were so proud and happy that we made it!👋

Now back to my MC and the flute. I think I did really great on doing the MC and the flute. I didn't make any mistake! I think my best part during the concert was playing the flute. I really enjoyed it and the reason I thin I enjoyed it is because I didn't make any mistake. 🎉Great job!✨

I really enjoyed the music🎤 concert last night!😝

Todays reflection is going to be about literacy!

For my writing, I'm on to my paraphrasing part so I think I'm going pretty well with this. I don't think I'm late and I don't think I'm fast either! Though, I need to find one more answer to my Inquiry Questions so I think I am busy with this.

I have one problem with my writing. I'm trying to follow my schedule but sometimes I lost track so I think I really need to follow my schedule.

Something else in literacy is that we have been doing quick write. What we do is Mr. Edwards will give us a second to think about what we should write about and then when that time is over he will give us about 10-15 minutes to write about that small moment in a google doc. I really enjoy👍doing quick write.

I think this week was great in Literacy!😋

For literacy we are still finding information for our inquiry questions. So what we did was we planed what we should do for what day. Everyones schedule are different because we are all in different steps. This is my schedule.

screen-shot-2016-11-21-at-7-58-56-am

I think my planning is ok because it has all the steps needed for making our book. I also think that making the planner was really helpful because it will keep track on what we are doing. The schedule will change bit by bit cause there might not be the time that we need so if there is a change, I will upload a picture of the schedule.

I will try my best to make a really good book!👍

I think this week was the same as the other weeks.

Though I enjoyed some part of my week. We did a lot of science. I really enjoy doing science because we get to see and learn. We experimented with salt, acid and with those, we made SSS (saturated salt solution).

I also really liked it when it was Graces' Birthday!🎉 She brought in donuts and juice and we got to eat them!🎁 Also at the end of the day (when it was Graces' birthday) we played the game "if you love me smile". It wasn't a really disgusting game. We just needed to be mature and brave. I think it was great!😋

One more thing is that, we started to plan our non-fiction writing topics. I am writing about Korea's language. I think it is going to be a little hard😩 to find all the information for this but I will try my best to find all the information 👍. I am really going to try my best to write and finish my non fiction writing.

I think this week was an awesome week and I hope that I will continue to have awesome weeks until I go to collage!✋🏼

The race

Do you know the AMAZING RACE?

I love it!

Our first unit in super unit was The Amazing Race. Yesterday we went on a field trip to district 1 and we did an Amazing race! This is my team mates.

My team was orange and I actually had lots of fun even though my body hurt. We had to walk and run a lot.

We did about 7 challenges and when we were done with one station we had to walk all the way to the next station. This was one of the stations.

It was really tiring. When we went to our last station and we got the hint for our finishing point, all of our team members got happy and we got back our energy. Lastly when we arrived we noticed that a few other groups were already there. We were 8th place. This was the final meeting point.

We had lots of fun during the race!

AMAZING RACE!

During the race, I stayed safe by not running towards the street. Once one of my team mate tried to go on the street so I had to stop my team mate. It was really close and it was so dangerous too. Another thing in the race was that I showed teamwork by including everyone to do the race. During the race some of my team mates kept on sitting down and wasting time because they were too tired so I had to cheer them up.

SUPER UNIT!

In super unit we learned about Peer pressure,Nutrition,and First Aid kit. While we learned about that I noticed I was getting more information about it! I have some things to tell you about each of the subjects.

imgres

First for Peer pressure. During learning peer pressure, I learned some ways you can deny others from getting peer pressured. If your friend pressures you to drink alcohol, you should say 'NO!I'm too young to drink alcohol!' That's how you can deny.

imgres

Now for Nutrition. For nutrition I learned that you should eat more fruits and vegetables to get healthy. If you always eat fats then it won't be good for your body.

imgres-1

Lastly for the First Aid kit. For first aid, I learned what to do when someone gets hurt. For example, when somebody sprains their ankle, you should let them sit and rest. BUT! Even before you even go close to that person, you need to check if it's safe for you to go. I fit's dangerous do not. If it's not dangerous then get/find something to rest the part they sprained on that object. The point is to put your leg up. If they are really worried make them calm. Lastly go/call/tell someone to get an cold ice pack to put it on the sprained ankle.

I think I learned a lot. I hope that I can continue learning more.^^
