Unit 1: Math

This Unit in math was rough, we did number talks, models, rounding elevator, khan academy just to name a few. First let’s talk about number talks, everyday or so we come together on the carpet and do a number talk we talk about our subject and what we are going to do today for math. It’s sometimes worksheets some times laptop thing or occasionally a blog post like this one. Next let’s talk about khan academy, khan academy is a awesome program that help’s us with our learning. We can do missions to help us move along in our learning. Mrs.Sylvester says that if we get to 100% in our missions on Khan Academy we get half a day to do what we want! Personally i love the next thing its adding and subtracting big numbers! We do a strategy called the algorithm. I love using this strategy because it not only helps me to solve problems it also helps me understand the them.

G4 Pioneers

On October 5 we had a blast doing awesome activities after school with the whole g4 but we were not there to only play we were here to SLEEPOVER at school it was the best day ever. Let’s go back a bit to the day we knew we were going to have a sleepover, the whole hall was practically shaking everyone was so excited. We slept at school on Thursday and went back home on Friday afternoon. Each student got a chance to pick a restaurant and i got to go to Master Beef out of Nha Hue a Vietnamise restaurant, a Korean restaurant, Co Ba Vung Tau or Osaka Ramen, so many people wanted to go to Master Beef we had to do a lucky draw. We played in the auditorium and played a whole bunch of games like tag and Chinese whisper   I slept with Mrs.Sylvester and Mrs.Ronzetti i was curled up in a corner with Kia (my friend) on one side of me and Ellen (my other friend) on the other side. I slept on an air mat i brought from home and a pillow and blanket i had a cosy night and i had a awesome breakfast. Then in the afternoon on Friday i had a badminton match and i went home.       

My G4 Talk Tiptoe Towards Fast Food

My G4 talk was about Fast Food and what it did to your body. Me and my partner Landyn were working on our script, it was hard but it was definitely worth it. Before i went on stage i was a mix of feelings i was nervous, excited and just wanted to get there faster.  When i was on the stage i felt happy and less stressed. After my performance was done i felt accomplished and proud. I think overall i did ok and i got less scared of going up on the stage. If i did it again i would speak more clearly and i would smile more. I would like to say thanks to all of my family members for helping me memorize my script and all of the teachers who helped me write and pronounce my words properly.

Yoga in class

This week we did yoga with Mrs Sylvester we did a whole bunch of stuff like doing the body scan and the yoga. My favorite part was when we were doing yoga it was fun we did some basic moves like balancing and doing downward dog.

A body scan is when the teacher walks you through your nervous system and talks with a calm voice and helps you relax. The body scan is for you to relax and make you think about  what is happening right now and you can do the body scan in bed or on a chair  it is really relaxing and is very helpful to have in your life.

Body Systems

Hi the last to weeks were epic we did some really cool stuff like touch a pigs heart and lungs we also saw inside of a chicken wing. Each grade 4 teacher and Ms.Fox had a different subject the subjects were the Musclo -Skeletal system, the Respiratory system, the Digestive system, the Circulatory system, and the Nervous system.

An important fact I learned was that you breath in oxygen and breath out carbon dioxide. We tested this theory with Bromythol blue a special blue liquid which when you put in carbon dioxide it turns to the color yellow.

The most interesting activity was the Digestive system with Ms.Sylvester we learned about how the Digestive system works and what happens when you swallow food

I had a hard time with the lungs because they were very confusing. We touched a pigs lung and saw what it looked like inside the lung, but the downside was the lung had a foul odor and it sank up the whole room

I would still like to learn more about the Nervous system and about how we rely on our brain to control our body

I think it’s important for me to learn about body systems because i am very interested in learning about how our body works and how the the brain works.

I showed academic excellence by taking macro photography for things that I would not be able to see every day. I take pictures of organisms in their habitats. You can also take photos of objects like this pin. Macro photography means that you take a photo of something small and make it appear large. You might need to take macro photography for work as a scientist or just simply for observing. I also saw red,weaver ants and a large maggot.

This is a 2 step problem that we had to try to solve.

Before I started the math problem I didn’t know what a equation was.

After this math talk I now know what a equation is. A equation is a number sentence about what you are going to do. Here is the equation for the question i did in class.(23+23)?+23=?.

Next step
My goal is that I want to remember what an equation is so I can use it for other math talks and questions. So it will help me to figure out how to solve math problems in the easiest way possible.
From now on I will try and solve problems with the most quick and clever way.

Hi my name is Elena.
In 3rd grade we looked at a 3 act task “the soda display.”
Here is a video to see how my group solved the problem.
