This week Ms Sylvester tought us about sleep, Mindfulness, and yoga. When we were learning about sleep she tought us about how to get a good sleep, what will happen if we don’t get enough sleep. she also tought us how to do mindfulness. The last I did was do some yoga. I enjoyed doing yoga the most. I still want to know how does mindfulness help keep us awake.
This week in school we learned about body systems. All the Grade 4 teachers and Ms Fox set up some activities for the body systems.
An important fact I learned was the heart pumps blood to the whole body
The most interesting activity was the nervous system because we get to play fun games
I had a hard time with learning about the bones because it was kind of hard to learn
I would still like to learn the digestive system because it is interesting and I want to learn more
I think it’s important for me to learn about body systems so I can understand what is good for me and what is bad.

This week on Wednesday, we had Math Morning. Some of our parents came to our classroom. First we showed our parents what a number talk looked 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 with my mom. I think Math Morning is fun and we should do it again.

Topic: Exciting events in class
The last 2 weeks had 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 having the ice skating field trip. We did the field trip because we had a unit on force. I learned that when we push our body in ice skating it makes us go and friction makes us stop.
A second thing I enjoyed was tug of war. We did it because we were doing a scientific test. I learned that in tug of war we use the forces push and pull.
The third thing I liked was the ping pong team challenge. Our goal was to make a vehicle that can carry 2 ping pong balls that it can move by blowing.
