This Unit, How we organize ourselves. The central unit is about how being organized and how it empowers people to take action.So in this unit, we had a guest speaker, who came from the charity, “ Two Presents”. The Two Presents group presented about how these people are suffering and about these rights.Anyways, they said that Grade 5 is going to make products for the charity.They also explained that Two Presents works with other communities.

Comparing fractions

Comparing Fractions

by:James yen

This week, we were doing a doc of comparing fractions. we have different strategies and at the end, we needed to complete a work sheet.

Strategy Name Explanation Example
#1

Equal Denominator

If they have different fractions and all of the denominators is the same, look at the numerator and see which number is the biggest to smallest, you will find out. 2/5  4/5  7/5

Which is the biggest fraction?

erj da = same
7 is the biggest fraction.
A:  7/5 is the biggest fraction.

#2

Equal Numerator

If the numerator is closer to the denominator, it is the largest. 4/5  4/7  4/1309

Which is the largest fraction?
4 : 5= +1

4 : 7= +3

4 : 1309= +1305
4:5 is the largest fraction

#3

knowledge of half

You need to divide the denominator and the numerator.do each fraction the same thing and you can see the difference of each fraction. 7/15   6/25  

Which is the biggest?
15-7=2.5

25-6=4.5
6/25 is the biggest

#4

Bench mark of 1

When the numerator is bigger than the denominator, it will show that other proper fraction and equal fractions is less than the improper fraction. 2/4 5/4 6/6

Which fraction is bigger?

2/4 = 2/4

6/6 = 1 whole

5/4 = 1 whole and one fourth
5/4 is the biggest.

#5 missing piece When the denominator is different to other fraction, check the numerator, and if each numerator is 1 number less from the denominator, check the largest numerator, once you see it, that is the answer for the largest. ½  6/7  12/13
12 is the biggest, so that means 12/13 is the biggest.

camp moments

Dear Jams( fan name ),

It has been a wonderful time in the camp in hong kong, as they say. We had counselors or should i say group leaders. They call their group name treasure island. My “friends” said that we may eat a feast of oreos, pretz, pringles and cake. We even brought new books to read. We mostly went and devoured the sea water. We made broken shaft that was supposedly for us to escape thy island. We had to do surviving skill test, surfing and jumpin off the surfboard and flipping over thy surf board while holding tight the surfboard. They told a tale of a boy, named alex, who had a sister.whenever alex heard his sister breath, scratch herself or even move.alex would pull, punch, kick and even choke his own sister with no reasons at all.His parents had to take him to many doctors and gave medicines, but none would help.finally, a doctor said:”i will not give you anymore medicines if….”he paused”you tell me if  you hear or see things before.” Alex, seemed to be surprised. He said:It’s funny that you say that, because I have been seeing things and hearing things. Alex said that every night, before he goes to bed, he would see a shadow behind his door. And in the middle of the night, he would see a goblin kind of creature, kneeling on his chest while his hands was pounding on his shoulder, smiling in front of his face, so close that only one centimeter away was it’s face and alex’s face. He would  also hear sound of a doll, chuckling and laughing in the attic. He would also hear and see, a shadow of a man, whispering in his ear, saying:”I want your family dead”.

So, that means that he was continuing this without telling anyone. Now, no one would dare to step inside the house because everyone was too scared to have evil reality spirits in their house.

 

Anyways, i felt that this was a clean and organised place for campers.

 

There is five things i need to tell jams,

1.where did we go?

Pui o

2.when did we go?

March 29-March 31

 

3.who did we go?

Grade 4 CDNIS

5.why did we go?
