Bubbl.us is a very useful website especially when you want to make a mind map. These helps me a lot because if I make a hand drawn mind map it will be VERY messy, so I would use Bubbl.us to help me organize my thoughts out. It also helps me so things clearly instead of ideas all over the page.
This is my Mythical Creature, Reincow, he is half reindeer half cow, as you can see it has antlers and instead of black spots it has white spots. It is unique for it’s name because since it’s called reincow it sounds like it is raining cows and it is also unique for its antlers, it can grow really long and can sell for millions of dollars. This can impact man kind in a good way because since it will make a lot of money it will also poo out rainbow poop.
Taking Action is a very importnat part in the 5 essential elements. I am going to talk about my action. My action is to go to a Grade 1 class and teach them about entertainment and how this has affected them in good and bad ways e.g. good way: Entertainment helps people relax and takes a break from all the hard work. Bad way: Some people spend so much time on their TV, computer, iPhone, etc. and this has actually affected they eye sight and their education because all they think about is watching TV, playing on the computer or playing on the iPhone.
We should be balanced and not always stick to our screen time all day, we could have screen time for 1 hour maximum so it won’t affect our eye sight or our learning. We also should socialize with people face to face more than depending on computers for communication and entertainment.
I will be planing to do this soon or whenever one of the Grade 1 classes are free. I think my action is 7 on the ladder because I thought of this idea by myself and thought this was the best one.
Hey guys! Sorry that I didn’t post for a really long time because I had an exhibition for like one month and it was REALLY busy, but I did have a lot of fun!
During the exhibition, we had to follow an inquiry cycle which is: Tuning In, Finding Out, Sorting Out, Going Further and Draw Conclusions. Tuning In is when you write down your prior knowledge, Finding out is when you research, Sorting Out is when you sort out all your information, Going Further is if you need to research more or cross out the unnecessary information and Draw Conclusions is when you draw conclusion for your findings.
Guys and don’t forget to come on live streaming tonight at 8:30!!!
Sorry that last week I didn’t post cause I went to SEASAC swimming! It was a lot of fun! I will post the links to see the photos!
This week we FINALLY got our groups! My group is about Entertainment, I got Andrea, Carolyn, Laurence and me, we only got up to Tuning In but we are soon going to be on Finding out.
Finally, this week is the first week of the Exhibition! I thought it was really really hard but it turned out to be quite fun, and check out the exhibition logo it was made my Jackie 6C :
Hey guys! As you can see by the title it looks I have a lot of things going on well if you want to know here you go!
Ok so first of all as you can see Chinese New Year has already past but here is a link to all the photos that my teacher took.
ok so the concert was really cool there was smoke coming out (but it was fake of course), there were martial arts, there were girls dancing and there were actually street dancers!
Anyway, my portfolio is due next week and I have like a HEAP of things, and I will have to bring this home to show my parents and than bring it back to school, I hope that my shoulders won’t get distorted!
Finally, we started a new thing in class it is called ‘Thinking about my learning’, what you are suppose to do is every Friday you have a little time to do your blog post, add some things in your portfolio and work on your goals sheet but today we added just a little something, what you have to do is to think about the whole week and look at all the examples and pin your name up right next to it!
Hey guys! As you can see Chinese New Year is around the corner, if you don’t know what Chinese New Year is than here is a little something. Chinese New Year is when we Chinese people gather together as a family and celebrate the new year but in the Chinese calendar way…? But anyway in Chinese new year you eat A LOT of things for example radish cake in Chinese it is called Luó bo gāo, another one is New Year cake in Chinese it is Nián gāo.
This week we have a dress rehearsal for the Chinese New year, today we had the Chinese Year Concert and tomorrow I will have my ISA test results back and I will go to my friends house.
I hope you guys will have a fantastic Chinese New Year and have a great feast!
P.S. Don’t eat too much!
Hey guys! I hope you enjoyed my blog post about Reducing Fractions .
Anyway today was DDD (Dress Down Day), we get to dress up in White, Green or Blue, this is because every month we get to pay at least $20 to different charities, this months charity is Ryan’s Well. This week we had a normal week but there was one SPECIAL period which was in music class, and that is (drum rolls…) Steve Stiller came to our class, if you don’t know who Steve Stiller is here is a website for you!
In music class we got three blue wooden sticks and than we went to the beat of 1e+a if you don’t know what this is it is a beat for you while playing your music instrument.
Today I am going to talk about Reducing Fractions, if you don’t really know what reducing fractions is don’t worry I can explain what it is .
Reducing Fractions is simplifying a fraction so that the numerator and denominator are both as small as they can possibly be, and the value of the fraction stays the same. For example, 3/6 is the same thing as 1/2 because if you simplify 3/6 by dividing it be three you get 1/2 these are called equivalent fractions. To reduce a fraction you first have to find the greatest common factor of the numerator and the denominator. For example, 12/20 to find the greatest common factor, you can make a list of all the factors of 12 and 20, than pick the biggest one they have in common. So the factors of 12 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 12, and the factors of 20 are 1, 2, 4, 5, 10 and 20. So the greatest common factor would be 4. To reduce that fraction you divide the numerator and the denominator, by their greatest common factor. 12 divided by 4 is 3 and than 20 divided by 5 is 4. Lets try another one, 4/14 the factors of 4 are 1, 2, 4 and the factors of 14 are 1, 2, 7, 14, looks like the greatest common factor is 2. So the next step is you guessed it the numerator divided by 2 and the denominator divided by 2, so 4/14 equals to 2/7. If you are wondering what if there is no common factors, then it just stay the same.
So I hope you guys learn a little bit about Reducing Fractions , and also sorry for giving this HUGE load of words.
Hi guys! If you had read my last post I said that I would try my best to at least do a post once a week, so I am doing it every Friday. But anyway, today we are going to talk about the CAMS test, this week I did another test but this test is in the Grade 6 level the last CAMS test was a pretest for Grade 6 so it is just to see where is your level of math.
