On May 18th, Mr. Grant put a painting on the whiteboard and he said to do a “See, Think, Wonder.” We also hd to write them down on our sketch book so these are some of my answers.
Boats that have been flipped over
A giant ship in the background
Lots of people
I think it is a beautiful piece of art and I also remember a question that Mr. Grant asked us. He asked,” where do writers get their ideas?”
So I think that it’s not only for writers but artists as well, and I think that the person who got the idea was from their past or if It was a dream. I think that some of the people are blue because it’s the artist way of expressing that they are freezing… cold.
Where did this artist get the idea of making this painting?How many people are there?What is happening?
Why are a lot of people on boats?In the left corner of the painting, what are they trying to do? Are they
pulling him in the boat or trying to push him out of the boat?What happened before?Why are their normal people and blue people?Are the blue people suppose to be cold?
Are the blue ghosts?Is this from titanic?Is it like titanic?Is the ship on fire?
On March 9th, Our teacher gave us a piece of paper, It was a math menu. On the paper it had 4 topics connecting to math. Independent Practice which you need to build your understanding by completing the worksheet package, our teacher also gave a worksheet package to fill in and it had a lot of pages. Another topic was mathletics, We had to Practice and apply our understanding of fractions by completing Fractions 1 and Fractions 2 On mathletics. The next challenge was the online challenge, we had to go to gregtangmath.com/satisfraction so we could complete some activities. The activities were, Identify (novice) Compare (apprentice) Simplify (practitioner) and Calculate (Practitioner).The last activity was number line action, we had to go to Khan Academy and watch: Fractions on the number line. Next complete the activity, Fractions on the number line. Lastly, in our math notebooks, create 5 number line examples on our own. There were box where you could tick so when you were done one activity you would tick that box and write the date of when u were done. I already finished mathletics Fraction 1 and 2. Now I’m doing the Independent Practice and soon be doing the other two things.
On May 9th My class went to our learning buddy’s spotlight. It wasn’t only their class, it was with two other classes.1B, 1D, 1E performed all together.
I really like my the spotlight because there was a storyline and some people would read the story and the other ones would act it out. I think they could improve on is transitioning a little bit faster. There were some technical difficulties but that didn’t stop them from making a good show. My learning buddy didn’t say anything in the show but she still participated by singing and dancing. My buddy did really well in Acting and participating, but next time I think if there was a spot for someone to say something then next time I think she should try to take the role.
This was my blog post about my learning buddies spotlight. I hope you enjoyed reading my post. 🙂
Last week, We had to go to a website or an app which is called Scratch. Scratch is where you put a code and there is a cat that that follows all your directions. You can also customise or change your cat to something very random, you can also go on the internet to find pictures you wanna put as your person.
Last week we had to Draw a tessellation. A tessellation is a pattern made of identical shapes, and where the shapes must fit together without any gaps. We also needed to Make a blog post about our reflection, so this is my reflection:
I only tessellated four times and I did expect that because I didn’t really know how to do a tessellation or what shape to do. The most challenging part was doing the calculation, i didn’t know how much to turn left or right.
Overall, even if I didn’t know how to do a tessellation I still enjoyed making it.
To me dogs are the best pets ever. Out of all the animals that you could choose from, I would pick dogs. Dogs are loyal, smart, caring, fun and they also appreciate you.
First of all, Some dogs can be caring. They can comfort you when you are sad or if you’re hurt. Some dogs can also help people that are blind to cross the street and get to their destinations. Some dogs can protect your house by guarding the door and making sure no bad guys or burglars can come into your place.
Secondly, dogs can be fun. Sometimes dogs want you to play with them and with their toys. Dogs can also do a lot of tricks like turning around on two paws or shaking hands. The last reason why I think dogs are fun is that they run with you when you take them on walks.
Lastly, some dogs are cute. Some dogs fur can be really fluffy and when you hug them you feel really comfortable. Some dogs like chihuahuas are really small and cute. The last thing that makes dogs cute are that they are in different colors like black and white.
In conclusion, dogs are my favourite pets and those are my reasons why I think dogs are the best pets. The next time I will get a pet it’s going to be a dog.
Yesterday in art class we watched a video about Henri Matisse. Henri Matisse was a painter but when he got older he had some problems so he started something new. He started cutting out different colors of paper, and then sticking it on other pieces of paper so it would make a human or an animal.
After the video, our teacher told us to try making our own collages. So I sat in our seats and she passed out the paper. There was a box in the middle of the table full of scrap paper. I was going to make it look like an underwater background because I got a light blue sheet of colored paper for the water.
First I decided to cut the sand, so I got a peach piece paper and started cutting out the sand. Then I made a tiny starfish and that took a really long time because I didn’t know how to draw one. After that I decided to make the seaweed, I got a green piece of paper and started cutting something that looked like seaweed. After that I tried to make fish but I fail and it took a long time, it looked like a rocket ship so instead of making a fish I threw away the rocket ship and said I was done. I hope you enjoyed my blog post 🙂 😀
From March 29th till March 31st, the whole grade went to Treasure Island ( Pui O, Lantau Island). We were split to several groups and groups would have about 11- 14 people in your group. We got to play a lot of activities and build our tents with the materials we had, we got to share a tent with 3 – 4 people. I thought camp was really fun, but the thing I enjoyed the most was the water activities, I enjoyed all of them so i can’t pick a specific one.
Going to camp it was my first time making s’mores and I will always remember making my first s’more. When we were doing raft building I thought that this activity was the most challenging because we had to tie a lot of different types of knots. When we were on camp I learnt that all of us litter, sometimes we don’t know if we litter but some people do it on purpose.
I really loved going to camp because it was my first time being away from home with no parents. I hope you enjoyed this blog post.
On March 23rd, The whole class had Visual Arts class. Our Art teacher told us a story about Vincent Van Gogh, after the story our teacher said that we need to pick one his famous paintings and try drawing and painting it. I chose to draw “The Starry Night”, I plan to draw the tall building first, then the small ones in background, after that I would draw the swirls and the stars.
I chose this painting because I like all the different shapes of blue, but I also like the way how different colors blend in like the moon. At the end of the moon’s light, It blends in into the sky. This painting makes me feel calm because of all of the colors.
I’m still trying to work on my drawing for The Starry Night, so next time I will give an update of what will happen. I hope you enjoyed reading this blog post.
