Sleep with Mrs. S

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.




Body Systems

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.

Topic: Math Morning

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.
