Today I completed a coding challenge on scratch. I learned how to sketch my initials (TW). It wasn’t very easy. For the “T” I first had to figure what blocks I needed to use. I used a protractor to figure how much I needed to turn. And then I figured what blocks to use for moving the pen. Next I had to figure how to make a “W”, it was much easier than a “T” because I had more experience with sketching letters. I quickly figured what blocks to use. I learned what blocks to use for turning it. I then quickly figured out what blocks to use to make it move the way I wanted. The hardest part was putting both letters together. I tried it the first time but the letters were stuck together and off the page. The next attempt, it was perfect but half of the “T” was gone. Finally, I chose to just keep them together. I changed the colour and the size. I tired to change the background but eventually my friend helped me.
I really enjoyed this activity, not only was it fun but it was very challenging. This activity encouraged me to try new things and skills. It was very fun! I loved sketching my initials. Even though it wasn’t completed it was still very cool!
This is my code:
Yestersay, I went to the ” Make,Create, Collabrate” activity. I first went to giant knitting. I learned how to finger knit. It was very hard at first, but I soon got the hang of it. I then attached it to two pencils because it was getting too long. I then went to the karaoke area with Kayla and Stephanie, we sang a few songs before we had to drink water. My voice was hoarse. I couldn’t really talk much, but we still sang one more song.
Today, we took our buddies to the Make, Create, Collabrate activity. We first went to the music wall. Nicholas, my buddy kept banging on the instruments. He probably wouldn’t leave if me and James (my buddy partner) hadn’t told him to go outside to the drum circle. He then banged on the drums once again. Then me and James switched. Since James wanted to go somewhere so we created a shift. One of us takes care of Nicholas and then the other can explore. And then we switch. I left Nicholas and James and headed to the knitting area to do some more knitting. It was much easier because I already did it yesterday. I chose a color and started to knit. It was very fun because I saw my friend from grade two so we talked a lot (since we talked so much we got a lot of things messed up). We then had to walk our buddy down to their class and we left to go to recess.
The make, create, collaborate activity was really fun. I thought yesterday was a little more fun because I got to go where I wanted instead of take care of my buddy (no offense). Though, everything was fun.
Here is a photo of me knitting on the first day:
Last week in performing arts we learned what light paintings were. We choreographed dances and practiced them. My group was Charlotte, Zada, and Jordan. Our group was somewhat productive, half the time we were doing our assigned work and half the time we were just resting. On our storyboard, we drew pictures for our dance. We had to make a pattern since that was our central idea. My first move was jumping out to the side. My next move was raising my arms and putting them down and then back up (repeat two times). A light painting is when you attach lights on yourself and then do multiple moves. Then you use an app to make the painting. We haven’t made our paintings yet, but we are going to this week.

On March I came for my SLLR’s with my mom and sister. I first got the materials to get started. I first showed my understanding of angles. I showed her how to use a protractor and told her about the different angles. It was very difficult trying to tell her because my sister kept annoying us. I felt really scared because I was afraid I’d mess up and then my mom will start correcting me (It’s not fun). I also showed her my angles sketchnote. Next, I showed her my design project. I told her the steps and my design project house. I also asked her to solve my problems (she refused, so my sister did it). After that I showed her my rocket writing and asked my mom to do one (My sister did it instead). I also showed her my symbiosis poster. I told her the meaning of symbiosis and the different examples. I told her about the process of making the poster. After I finished my SLLR’s I went back home.
In coding we learned how to tessellate simple shapes and how to comment. We were first taught how to make shapes such as triangle and squares. When I first tried to tessellate it, I didn’t successfully tessalte first, but I got it a few times later. It was very different from what I expected, a lot different. Scratch did draw what I wanted, I tessellated a square and a triangle. Though the triangle kept overlapping so it wasn’t really a tessellation. I guess it’s what I expected. The most challenging part was making the triangle because it had so many codes. The square was the easiest because it we already discussed it with the class. I learned so many new skills. I used to not code so much, so I learned a lot from this coding activity. I learned to make/code simple shapes, tessellate them and comment. To comment you have to control click the block you want to comment on. I really liked this coding challenge because I learned so many new codes and it was very fun.
Here is my code:
The green flag will make the code start. Clear means that you will have a blank page every time you press the flag. The next block will it make the sprite (The character) move back to where you want it to start. Set pen size to block will make it either thicker or thinner. The forever block will it make your code you put under it go forever. Repeat will make it do it again. In order to tessellate you need to use the pick random block which will make it draw a new shape on the corner of the shape you already drew. Move ( ) steps will make the sprite move that many steps. In my case I made it 30. Turn 90 degrees will it make the square. The pen up block will it make the pen stop, but there is no real point because your code will go on forever anyways. The yellow block will is the comment block.
I have recently done a math activity. We used pattern blocks to create shapes and we tried figuring out the value. I decided that the hexagon’s value is 1, so I tried to figure my whole shape’s value. One trapezoid is a half of a hexagon so it’s plus one. Then the triangle is 2/6 if the hexagon. The value is 3 2/6 because there are 3 full hexagons and 2/6 of the hexagon too.
Hope you learned something.
This week was green week. In green week, kids from Roots and Shoots can start booths. I did one, it was painted flower pots so we the participants can take them home and give it to the bees. That was not the only thing in green week. We also watched a movie called Tapped. It was about bottled water and how big water companies pump out a lot of water from cities lakes and rivers. I learned a lot about it and told my mom about it. Green week was very fun, my booth lasted about four days because we ran out of materials.
I have just came back from Korea for the April holidays. It was very boring because I’ve been there a thousand times. We boarded the plane, and waited until it landed. We got through border and customs and collected our bags and left to go to my grandma’s house. Me and my sister showered and went to bed.
The next day we ate lunch at home and played on the computer. We watched some videos and waited for our cousins come. With our cousins played tag and ninjas. It was very fun. Our little cousin always tagged so we hid in the play equipment so he wouldn’t catch us. We first go up and then we he comes, we slide down and then when he comes down we go back up. It was very fun watching him be tortured.
The following day we went out for lunch and ate noodles. It was very good, but not the best. We went to the stationary store to buy some tape and staples. Then me and my sister walked back home and then I hiked up the mountain with my grandpa. After we ate dinner, I went to bed with my sister and annoyed while at it.
On the last day, we packed our bags and went to the plane. On the plane, I didn’t feel very good so I went to the bathroom. Not very interesting.
The day after, I went to the shops to buy stuff I need. Such as glue, containers, baby oil and shaving cream. It was very fun shopping with my sister.
So that was my April break.
In class I learned about comparing fractions. There are many ways to compare fractions. Equal denominator, equal numerator, benchmark of half and benchmark of one. In equal denominator is when the bottom number ( also known as denominator) has the same denominator with the other fractions when comparing. So you only need to look at the numerator.
In equal numerator is when the numerator is the same as the other fractions so you can calculate the largest smallest quickly. The biggest one is the one with the smallest denominator because when the denominator is smaller parts are bigger.
In benchmark of half, you have to try to half the fraction. It’s either more, less, or equal. You are trying to think if the numerator is either more, less, or half of the denominator.
In benchmark of one, you have to find a fraction equal, more or less than a whole. You can look at both numerator and denominator.
Missing piece is when the numerator is almost a whole like 4/5 . But if the denominator is bigger than the other fractions it is larger. Because the missing piece is smaller so you get more.
I hope you have learned something new.
