First Year of G5

First Year of G5

On August 1st, we have finished grade 4 and now moving on to grade 5! This blog post is a little bit late because we had to do a lot of things. Now we are on our next unit. This blog post, I am going to talk about a math game that I played online as an extra.

We played this game called Deep Sea Dive on the website called Illuminations. It’s a game where you can choose which grid you have. They have a 16 bubble grid and a 9 it says the target number on the top of the screen., and then you have to match the number so then it adds up to the target number.

I played the game a couple of times and I won a lot of them. Once you won like 4 times, the game gets harder and it can add in decimals and maybe even negative numbers!

The things I learned from this is how to add decimals. It was also very entertaining. Once I got to the decimals, I lost quite a bit. First when I tried it I kept guessing. Sometimes I won and sometimes I didn’t. I mostly didn’t. If you want to see the link, click HERE!

Before this, we had to do a summative test of UOI. This summative was about the first unit. It was about what we needed our classroom community to look like. By that, it meant that we needed to talk about what we wanted everyone to act, or what we actually wanted our classroom community to look like (Arranging tables and changing the design).

I am fast at typing, so I finished it earlier than some people. We also had this paper to correct our work and correct our mistakes. I added a few more ideas because the minimum of paragraphs were at least like 7-11 paragraphs.

This was a summative task, which means we can’t help other people. I helped someone a little bit but then I didn’t know.

I think I was successful with my writing piece. Maybe to improve it, I can add more details. In case you want to read it yourself, just go HERE!

I felt very happy since the start of the year. The only thing is that people kept talking when I was trying to focus.
