Today is learning journey, we had to show our parents what we had learned in school 8 months I was really nervous about learning journeys and excited. I show my parents what we do in English we had to write sentence with personification and simile. Next I show them my math we played a game called I have who has game it was really fun. Then we went outside to observe nature we found a lot of things.
This week we had our buddies. We did an activity where we sorted M & Ms. The last week we also did Valentines art craft. We made a fish. You can also make a dog, bee, cat and more. Also this week we did our nature observation. At the end of our observation we saw a humongous lizard that was a bit orange. We’re also going to see Brooke in track and field meet.
This week we saw a basketball game. The teams were UNIS VS ISHMC. UNIS lost, the score was 13-31. This week we also saw a dead owl it was a barn owl. It died by hitting the glass. We also launched our new unit it’s call Nature Tales. We also had some guest speakers to talk about there stories of when they were out in the wild.
My first few weeks of 2017 have been fantastic. In winter break I went to Malaysia and my birthday happened. I also went to my grandfather’s house. This week we have been doing our TET posters. This week we also had Sports day, it was very fun. I am looking forward to TET to see my grandfather and grandmother.
This week on Wednesday, we had a math morning. Some of our parents came, but some didn’t come. First we show 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 3 games with Andrew’s mom. I wish my parents can come next time.
This week we had a Terry Fox run. Terry Fox is a person who runs across the world for the money to donate to charity. He has cancer so he had to get a robotic leg. So each year they do this thing called Terry Fox run. Terry Fox run is a thing that you run to different places. Many people buy shirts of Terry Fox because the money from the shirts go to charity.
This week we did coding using dash. We did the coding with Mr. Papseit. We also did some challenging challenges that we had to do with dash. I also know how to code a little better. While we were coding we also saw that the dash can do what you code. I also found out that you have to code on the app Blockly. I also saw that you have to code dash to draw a shape.
The last two weeks have been very exciting. We did many activities and had some special event here are 3 of my favorite events.
The first thing I really liked was the ice skating field trip because it was my first time going ice skating. In the ice skating rink we did some experiments and I learn that many things in the ice skating rink. There are many forces that can make you stop and go.
The second thing I really liked was the ping pong ball and the golf ball experiment. It was very interesting to see which one would drop first. In the experiment we had three tries to see which ones would land first or is it at the same time. I observed that the ping pong ball dropped first because ping pong ball has less weight than the golf ball.
The third thing that I liked was the spring scale take apart because there were many parts of the spring scale which were very interesting to learn about. In the take apart we drew a picture of the spring scale and we asked questions of the spring scale. I learned that the spring scale is used for weighing stuff.
On Tuesday, October 4, we had our DragonTopia celebration to end our perspective unit. This video is my reflection about DragonTopia.
