Reflection of the week

 During this week we didn't do much however if you'd like to look I have  a reflection on the book were reading in our class now.

I think that Edward Tulane is someone who is hard to get know because he's so mysterious yet I believe that form what we've read so far he's somebody spoiled yet he probably doesn't really realize that he is and he is definitely introverted because every time Edwards owners are having an important conversation on the dining room table he mostly just ignores it. I think that Edward Tulane believes that money is something you just get and crevice not something hard that you actually have to work for because he get's gifts, new watches things like that basically all the time. From what I've read I also have a guess that he just wants everything to be perfect for example his cloths always have to be clean and unwrinkled. Or from the time that the nanny got fired on her first day. i'm very surprised because Edward Tulane is almost never scared of anything yet i'm surprised because he just fell into the water and for once he's scared. I think that in this book the main idea is about change because in this certain chapter Edward Tulane keeps doing things that hes never done before so that is why I think it's about change.I think that Edward Tulane is someone who is hard to get know because he's so mysterious yet I believe that form what we've read so far he's somebody spoiled yet he probably doesn't really realize that he is and he is definitely introverted because every time Edwards owners are having an important conversation on the dining room table he mostly just ignores it.

In math class now were doing grids and i find that even though it''s an important skill I still find it to be very easy and boring.

Reflection of the week

This week we were finally starting to get back in our normal schedule yet that still doesn't mean it was easy necessarily. Here are some my math reflections  I had from this week.

During are rotations in math something I learned was figuring out how much a block weight which is 65 grams another station we did was figuring out your ideal amount of cool aid mix and how much you'd like to add ideally.

During the rotations I was was at the volume station and when at it we were measuring the volume of books that Mr.Nathan gave us. Something I learned was another way that you can measure volume, well more specifically the area and that is measured. And what I learned was that you don't have to count every single block and that you only have to count one row and then double it. Another thing that I learned was what volume actually was because I used to think it was like sound volume yet now my different understanding is that it's area in cubic centimeters and more and height in cubic centimeters and more.

Something I wondered was if we put a temperature under dirt if it would get hotter or colder. Something I would've done if I had more time would be to look at the ideal room temperature across our planet. Something that I learned was a more accurate understanding of how much Celsius would be if it were Fahrenheit.

In this week I found that literacy was definitely the top priority because usually we only work on literacy two or three times yet this week we worked on it almost everyday. In literacy what were actually doing is making are recounts. I find recounts easy because you don't have to research or make a story
because it's from your personal life.

Reflection of the week

In literacy this week we where writing response texts on our music concert. I learned the reason that we do response writing is to give an opinion like when judging for example Distasteful, Obnoxious, etc. Now I wonder what type of writing we our going to do after response writing.

In math we worked on a problem where we had to figure out how many tiles we would have to put in Tam's bathroom with a given amount of information. I learned other ways to solve the problem and I learned how to measure in feet and yards. Now I wonder even though the U.S is used to not using the metric system even though it's easier to use.

In U.O.I (PYPX) my group is now going to form a workshop and the the purpose is going to be to show people how they can re purpose non biodegradable items. I think that one of the biggest things that i'm learning is that if you do something that you're committed to doing it can become a lot easier than if you don't like it.  Now i'm starting to wonder what exhibition is going to be like when we perform.

Music concert

On March 15 about two weeks ago the 5th and 4th grade student all preformed a music concert in the UNIS auditorium.  I didn't really like performance because I didn't feel it was very good and there was a lot of pressure with the week's leading up to the performance yet, at the end it was a phenomenal performance for certain aspects.

 I was the person that would make the announcements. I had noticed in times that the announcements would talk in a very boring form which would make you lose your attention for the whole time. That's why I decided to change it and talk professionally while still making a few jokes here and there to capture there attention.

The grade 4 were all dressed in there black and whites while singing certain very entertaining songs that would suit well to dance to.

The grade 5 strings preformed some very simple songs and it was very screechy so that made it quite clear they didn't care much about it. They also had a very upset look on there faces which made me wonder.

I believe the reason that we preformed was to show our talent and progress from how far we've come with our singing and instruments and then showcase it to our family and other's.

Reflection of the week

Takuma a kid in our class is now leaving and I feel sad because I feel like I didn't get to know him very well this year. I also wonder how Takuma is feeling because it must be hard to leave all of your friends behind. Another thing I wonder is how his friends feel being that as I type this blog because this there last day with him. I think that at first he's going to be very upset yet after a few months he will move on and make new friends. I wonder what his new school in Japan is going to be like because I going to go to Japan for spring break.

In my exhibition group I feel kind of nervous because are group is still behind and Ms. Tina is really stressing me out and I think the same for my group member. I something else that is putting us behind is that my group has one other person beside's me and then another group has six people and they get a lot more help than us. I'm getting very angry at my group member because for three days now he has forgot his computer. Something else is that he messes around a lot even more than me and now I feel like i'm doing almost all the work. Yet something good is that our group is good at communicating because we both know each other well.

In reading groups where reading a book called ''Number The Stars.'' I find that it's a very depressing book because it's about world war two. Something that I like about it is that I get to see the perspectives about the normal people that lived in this time period. As for my reading group I feel that where very separated because we can't agree on anything like where to read to and to either do our reflection on a google doc or google slide little stuff like that. Another thing is that we decided to go to chapter ten yet i'm only on chapter four so I don't think I have alot of time during the weekend. something I wonder about world war two is how it ended and how it's going to positively effect people's lives.

Reflection of the week

You might or might not have known yet this week we had our music concert. It was actually very fun there was strings, band, choir and another performance involving basketballs. I played the trumpet and the trumpet is an instrument that I don't really like yet even still I think that I've become a lot better because now I practice and, I think I take it more seriously. Everything went well and I got to be the MC which meant that I got to do most of the talking when introducing the performances. I noticed that most of the time the MC talk in a very boring that that doesn't really make you want to listen so I try to stay on the script yet if they then look bored I try to add more onto it.

In exhibition I think that I've changed a lot in our groups because at the start I wasn't very exited because we where limited to only making balls yet now that we've expanded onto what where doing. I think I'm enjoying it more. I used to be worried that our group was behind yet now that I take a look at the other I realize that our isn't behind and where actually ahead of most groups.

In math were still doing probability and I think that I now get what it actually is and it's basically determining the chance of something happening and I think that i'm getting better at it yet I still have a lot to work on. It's also kind of probability against the number of outcomes.

French Reflection

When I was in the process of making this slideshow I found that this was one of the first projects that I really needed to work outside of the classroom because I started It late since I missed the first day because I was at the youth sports.

Something that I found challenging was mostly the mostly avoir etre and knowing the correct pronunciation.

Something that I found easy was describing the face of the person like ears, nose, etc.
