This is a little sad but kinda happy. I am sad because it is the end of grade 4 (1 more day left)and cant be with the BEST teacher. I am also a little happy because next year we are going to grade 5 and also we have new teachers with really nice teachers. My favourite game of the year in grade 4 is splat. The good parts about grade 4 is that we have nice friends, funny friends and awesome friends. I also improved more on math and UOI.
The thing that i will most remember is halloween because i got to be a vampire and looked scary, we sang scary songs about ghost,pumpkins and more. I was so proud that i get to play Minecraft and finished all the math. I was really happy in grade 4 because we get to have our own computer. I also had so much fun drawing and colouring and crafting. We will always remember about camp too! We named our classroom 4Dabbing Donuts, I love that name.
My final thoughts about this year is that it has been a great year learning new things and playing fun games and finally having class parties.The most important things about grade 4 is to remember our best teacher. A good quote about grade 4 is “think positive never think negative.” I thin that means to always think about good things and never think about bad things. I will always remember my buddy called Chloe, and my partner is Paegan
This is a picture of us dabbing!
A few weeks ago, me and my class was learning scratch! Our First tasks was using the blocks that scratch made and make a letter A. The second tasks where to make your name (A.W) I could make the A but it was really hard to make the W. (So i did not do the W)! The teacher tried to teach me but I don’t really understand. In our computer our teacher will teach us how to make curves,straight lines and more! Ms. fung taught us how to make your own block. I took some pictures of my work of the scratch!
Today me and my class went to make create collaborate. make create collaborate is about all the songs, music and art! I like make create collaborate because we get to sew, knit and paint andIlove singing. Today we went with my buddy called Chloe. it was really fun and even made a tiny scarf.
Yesterday we did not go with our buddy but me and my friend went to the green screen (trick your eyes) after we went outside and play the drums, then we went to see people do finger knitting. we painted and had so much fun singing! We snag almost 6 songs and we had a mike so we could sing.
I liked make create collaborate because we get to learn a lot of things and get to do what you really love. I almost forgot but we made a picture with a bottle of the cover (from the beach). We put the glue on the picture then use your hands and spread it. Then my hand got all messy.
A week ago we did not go to school because we have SLLR, SLLR is where your parents or someone that loves you comes and hear what you learned in Grade 4.
My mom came to my SLLR and I had so much fun, SLLR stands for student led learning review! there are different topics like the UOI, literacy, and math same as performing arts and PE. We took a long time to prepare (maybe a week) So first we made the plan then we do the practicing with your partner my partner was Zada! The first day we go home and think how you are going to talk to your parents. I like SLLRs because you can teach your mom on what you learned and you can be the teacher for 1 hour.
Other people come in different times like my friend went on Friday and some people went on Saturday. I went on Saturday, some people came really early like 7,6 and maybe 8, I went at 12.In the SLLR I saw Stephanie Kayla and two other people. For Chinese it was kind of hard because you have to speak in Chinese and explain them in Chinese, wich I don’t really know how to speak.
For performing arts it was really fun because well you can talk about the light painting and we get to watch this video and how to do a light painting. I did not show my light painting because I did not do it yet.My group in the light painting is Lauren and Trevis.
I will show you a picture:
Last week in performing arts we learned what light paintings were. My group was Trevis and Lauren. Our teacher from performing arts is Ms.Butler. On our storyboard, we drew pictures for our dance. We had to make a pattern since that was our central idea. A light painting is when you attach lights on yourself and then do multiple moves. Then you use an app to make the painting. My first move was kneeling down and making your hands are a circle. My second move is you falll down on the carpet and circle your hands. We haven’t made our paintings yet, but we are going to this week.
Today I am going to be talking about the scratch that we made a tessellation. What we did in coding is that went scratch and make a tessellation by using one of the buttons of scratch, The shape that I made in scratch is a square. (square is the easiest shape you can make) So we did an experiment to make the square a lot of people could not do it and a lot of them can! I tried making a hexagon but it was too hard so the teacher helped me make a square. My favorite shape is a heart but it was too hard to make. I really enjoyed coding because you do it on the computer and it was really fun. The teacher that teach us was called Ms. fung, she is really nice and she helps a lot of people. Other people made a hexagon, octagon, circle and more!(they are so good!) My friend did not know how to do it so I helped her a little bit and my other friend helped me. My favorite part of this lesson is when we can do the blog! hope you like it!
On May 4th, we explored fractions.🍕 We learned a lot of strategies, So this strategy is about wholes!! We learned wholes of each shape and what the total value is. The class made a picture then we calculate the whole is, then calculate what the total value is!
Here I have a picture so you can see what picture and what the total the value is!
A week before we were been learning angles, Ms. G gave us a sheet and an assessment to do about angles. There is a right angle, obtuse angle, acute angle and straight. I learned it in math class that is why I know how to do it. I use a protractor to calculate how many degrees is that angle, the protractor is a shape called a semi-circle. Other people can calculate it without a protractor, Angles can be in a shape or in buildings and more! angles can be a shape of a triangle, square, rectangle etc…
I’ll show you the pics of it!
On Wednesday, March 29th, 2017 we went to camp in Pui O! I was so excited! my tent buddies were Paegan and Coco! the tent was gray and orange. when we went inside the tent we unpacked our things. P.S I never ever went camping before. At night I was talking to my friends:3, THERE WAS SO MANY BUFFALOES/POOP! our group name was “Potato Campers”! The teacher said that we had to wake up at 6:30. I was so surprised because I don’t usually wake up so early. However, the first and second day I woke up at 5:00! we went to the beach to play some activities.I had so much fun there! but I thought it would be so boring!
On the first day, we arrived at the campsite and met the camp leaders. My camp leader was called “Melissa”.She was really nice and friendly lady and she is always happy. The activities that we were playing the game calculator, we signed it like a contract, and build our tents!
On the second day, we woke up at 5:00 and went to brush our teeth and ate a yummy breakfast that was egg and bread. after we changed to our swimsuit and went to the beach, we played do not step on the sand, surfing, doing an obstacle course, we played the game of life and more! 😜 We ate a ate a sandwich for lunch and a BBQ for dinner.We met a cow called Billy he was funny!😝
On the last day (third) in the morning, we had to pack everything because we were going home! we played Stella Ella olla (hand game)! We ate a sandwich for lunch. It was raining so hard that I got all wet!️ When we got on the bus we were all so wet 🙁
We went back to school and had free time, I played a game called animal jam! my mom came, I was so happy!
I will show you some pictures of camp!👍🏻
Last week we were learning about what is Interdependence. I think Interdependence is a condition of a nation, country, or state in which its residents and population, or some portion thereof, exercise self-government, and usually sovereignty, over the territory. The opposite of independence is a dependent territory. Interdependence does not necessarily mean freedom.
