Our group topic is about creating standing desk that produce electricity. I am interested in this project because I want to learn how to produce kinetic energy and turn them into electricity for the school to use.
Our next step for this project is to do interviews with students teachers and other people so that we know how they think of our project. We are using MISO as a step by step research guide for this project. I hope you enjoy this little heads up thing and I will see you in the next blog post. BYE !!!
Hi today I will tell you about types of text. So first is a expository it is a informational kind of text it has lots of information and it has really good structure to it. The second one is persuasive it is when it persuade them to do something. It usually contains opinions and emotions. The last one is procedural, it is when it is teaching you how to do something.
Here are some examples:
That’s it I hope you enjoyed and I will see you next time BYE!
Hello my name is Yoyo, today I will tell you about what I do at the Moon Bear center at Cat Tien. First I make food for the moon bears using bamboo, inside the bamboo there is bananas and moon bear chips. Then we hide the food. After that we went up to the observing deck to observe the moon bears getting the there food.
I saw the moon bears using their paws to climb, use, open, and grab things and food. It was a amazing experience. The moon bears are pretty big compare to sun bears. It was covered with fur. It was 100 to 150Kg. Thank you for reading my blog and I will see you next time.
Hi my name is Yoyo and today I will tell you about what is close reading reading is ? It is when you read something many times and each time you have a purpose for it. This was really helpful because it gives me more in depth answers not just yes or no.
Did you actually read the text 3 times?
Yes I always read the text 3 time. I read it again every time when I finish a question. In total I read the text 3 times and each time I have a different purpose. It was pretty hard to me to pay attention to the reading because I am used to reading 1 time.
Did you read the text again before filling out the 3 sections, or did you look at #2 and #3 and just try to answer them without rereading the entire text?
Yes I did, but it is a really hard habit to break because this is a new type of reading for me. I need to do this typing of reading more to get used to it.
What is a Main Idea? Can you give an example in your explanation?
A main idea is the purpose of reading something. A main idea is like your mom and dad and the details are the children. So each time I read I have a different main idea. From then I can fill in the details more detailedly.
How can Close Reading help you…think about heading to middle school and high school…
I think close reading can help you in middle school and high school because it really helps you to think in depth to a question instead of a simple answer like yes or no. So your research will be more detailed and accurate instead of a sloppy one. I think this is a great way for students to get more in depth answers. I hope you enjoy and I will see you in the next blog.
Today our class has started a new unit called green dragons. This unit is about keeping the school or other things to go on forever. We are doing this to help to school to keep on running and keep on teaching students. I wonder if we used a lot of natural resources like coal, trees, and other things that takes a long time to be reproduce does the count as sustaining something ?
I was thinking about how we could make something handle things that it was suppose to do for a long time this connect to my life because it will help me protect things that I need for the future. That was my thinking about this new unit and I hope you enjoy and I will see you in the next blog post
Yesterday we started a project called Hack your classroom. The project is about using technology that we know to improve our classroom. We are in a group that uses 3D printing. I work with my best friend Kojo we came up with a TF2 themed pencil holder. We came up with it because student’s desk were really messy that’s why this idea.
Now we are designing our project. I hope it will turn out useful and great. Thats it I hope you enjoy and I will see you in the next blog post. BYE!!!
Hi my name is Yoyo and today I will answer my teachers questions.
True because this shape has 4 sides.
No it is not true because it doesn’t have all of the attributes of a trapezoid, a trapezoid has, 4 vertices, 4 angles, all angles add up to 360 degrees, 1 set of parallel sides.
No it is not true because it doesn’t have all of the attributes of a rhombus, a rhombus has 4 equal sides, 4 vertices, 4 angles, all angles add up to 360 degrees, 2 sets of parallel sides.
Yes this is true because this shape have all the attributes of a parallelogram, a parallelogram has 2 sets of parallel sides.
Yes this is true because this shape have all the attributes of a rectangle, a rectangle has 2 sets of parallel sides, 4 sides, 4 vertices, 4 angles, all angles add up to 360 degrees, 4 right angles.
Today my teacher read The Lemonade War to the whole class and today I will tell you my about what I would do if I were Jessie and Evan. So basically Jessie and Evan are having the lemonade war and so they play dirty tricks to each other to win the war. If I was Evan I would say sorry to Jessie and make a tie with her. If I was Jessie I would say sorry and accept the tie. I hope you enjoy and BYE!!!
Today I have a new understanding of multiplying decimals it is really cool and interesting. Today I will show you what my new understanding is. So first now I know that multiplying decimals by decimals makes the answer smaller not larger like multiplying whole numbers by whole numbers. Then I know now that sometimes you have to shift your model a little bit, like the wholes becomes the tenths, the tenths becomes the hundredths and the hundredths becomes the thousandths. I also learned that each problem require a different models like the tenths times tenths require the overlap model and the whole number times tenths is groups model. So that’s it I hope you enjoy and I will see you in the next bog post BYE!!!
One of my model.
Hi! I am Yoyo, and today I will tell you my reflection.
1. What have I done so far in this inquiry journey?
Well I have done lots of things like brain storming questions for our writing. Then we went to the library and Ms Mandy good sources to find information for kids like us. Then we had a whole class discussion about what we want to research about. Then we make a google doc to simplify our questions so it’s easier to research. Then we research.
2. What has been a challenge so far?
Probably finding the right information.
3. What are you excited for?
I am excited for my final piece of writing.
4. What do you wonder?
I wonder probably about why people rely on technology so much.
