My Chinese SMART goal is:

S: My Chinese Teacher and I at home will work on pinyin this year. I will practice once or twice a week with the workbook phrases.
M: I will practice at least once a week at least and have pinyin test from my mom at the end of each week.
A: I will practice twice a week for ten minutes twice a week and my mom will test me at the end of the week and see if I am improving my pinyin.
R: I will see if I am improving at Christmas and if I would like to improve more I will continue to my birthday.

T: I will continue until Christmas and see what my final score is.


My SMART goal reflection: I think I reached my SMART goal in a way because I practiced my pinyin in assessments. I used pinyin in practicing my writing assessments because it I did not know the characters so I used pinyin. I am going to continue practicing in my assessments and using pinyin in writing assessments.

Goal Setting

Dear Readers,

This Week, We had a half week because of a holiday and a PD day. Also, I got back from Cambodia and had a lot of fun. I got to go parasailing, relax at the pool all day and have two spa treatments! I am grateful for having an awesome family and for them to take me to such exotic places like Australia, New Zealand, and  Vietnam! This week, I really enjoyed looking at the Water We Eat website because it really was interesting and worth to take your time and look at the website. I  thought everything was pretty easy but I think I could work on my fractions a little bit.



Camp Goals Reflection

Dear Readers,

Last week, all the grade 4’s when to camp! We went on March 29th to the 31st. It was three days and two nights! We had an awesome counselor (Eily),  an amazing teacher ( Ms.Brown ) and camp mates ( Phoebe, Claartje, Maegan)! My goals for last week was to be a risk-taker and to be cooperative with my camp mates! I think I met my risk-taker because I got into the water and did all the activities I think I met my cooperative goal because I think that I cooperated with the group by following the rules and helping them. I am proud of not having a lot of food waste for our group because we did noScreen Shot 2017-04-06 at 10.29.01 AMt fill very many buckets! I am also proud of me not being a chicken and being home sick from my mommy( I love you mom ).  I really enjoyed building the raft, the barbecue and everything else! I think I could improve not rushing to do the activity so we can listen and understand the activity before we do it. I am so grateful for all my friends that made me happy and all the people that made this happen for us!



Volume Lesson Reflection

Dear Readers,

The past few weeks, My friend Caitlyn and I have made a volume lesson so we could teach kids how to do volume! It was so much fun to make one because I really got to explain my learning! First,  Caitlyn and I thought up some short ideas that we definitely wanted in our I move because we thought it would really add something to our lesson. Then, we got to work! We added all the things that we thought up and added things when we moved on. After that, we added a word problem that we could do with them and one that they could do themselves because we thought that it is really important to practice and get some help before they do it on their own. Last, Caitlyn and I made an iMovie! The iMovie was really good but there was some imperfection! It was really fun to film our voices with Quicktime Player! Here is my volume lesson picture:
Here is the link to our iMovie inside my red: Volume iMovie\

Bye and I hope you learned something!!

Reflection on Plastic Free Seas Microbeads Workshop

Dear Readers,

Screen Shot 2017-03-25 at 08.03.37Today we went to a microbeads plastic free seas workshop! We learned about how they affect the world and how it affects the food chain! Microbeads are in the body scrubs, body lotions and body gels. It is the parts in the body scrubs (etc.) that makes it ruff. Instead of microbeads you can use almond, walnut shells, jojoba beads and coffee grinds. This will help you choose your product wisely and keep your seas safe and clean! Here are some products that do not use microbeads :Beiersdorf, Boots, Botanicals, Colgate-Palmolive, Co-op , Clarins, Clorox, Cussons, Dr Hauschka, La Roche-Posay , Liz Earle, L’Oréal, Lush, M&S (own-brand), Morrisons (own-brand), Neal’s Yard Remedies, Oral-B, Palmer’s, REN, Rituals, Sainsbury’s , St Ives, Unilever , Waitrose. I hope that you can keep our world safe! If you want to learn more go to the plastic free seas website: http://www.plasticfreeseas.org/microbeads.html

The Aquatic Biome

Dear Readers,

This unit we are learning about biomes, ecosystems and habitats.For homework this week we had to make a blog post
about either biomes, ecosystems or habitats. I choose biomes because I knew nothing about them and I want to learn
about them! I went on symbaloo and found the Icon that said habitats, biomes and ecosystems. I went to a biomes 
website. [ click here to go to the website ] .

This whatScreen Shot 2017-03-12 at 1.33.16 pm I found out,"aquatic biome is the biome that is the biggest of the biomes. Water is the common link among
the five biomes and it makes up the largest part of the biosphere, covering nearly 75% of the Earth’s surface.
Aquatic regions house numerous species of plants and animals, both large and small. In fact, this is where life 
began billions of years ago when amino acids first started to come together. Without water, most life forms would
be unable to sustain themselves and the Earth would be a barren, desert-like place. Although water temperatures can 
vary widely, aquatic areas tend to be more humid and the air temperature on the cooler side. The aquatic biome can
be broken down into two basic regions, freshwater and marine water."

My question's are: 1. Why did they break the world into different biomes? 2. What does the aquatic biome change in
the world?   
The world is Important and we are the only ones that can save it!
