Welcome to the second edition of the 5E blog post by 5E! This edition has been written by Shiv, Sophie, Karis, and Takdeer. As in the last blog post, we will be writing about the different things we are doing in school like Math, PE ( Now Dance) UOI and more.
In Math, we have been measuring angles and shapes. Recently we have been creating collages with different triangles including scalene, isosceles and equilateral. When we were creating the triangle collages, we color coded the triangles so that we knew which were what types were which. After we made the collage, we measured the angels, scanned the collage and then put it into our red binder. Since we finished the collage, we started to talk about mixed numbers, decimals, fractions and percentages, and we looked at the different ways of identifying a number.
During UOI, we started our first unit HWEO, which stands for “How We Express Ourselves”. The central idea is: Communities can be built through the expression of ideas. Currently, we are doing another presentation. This time it was about our UOI homework, which is about finding a real life example of a person that express themselves.
This month instead of PE we have been doing dance class. We’re doing dance class with a teacher named Ms. Saunders. We’ve been doing a few warm up games recently, but our class had not started all the proper dancing yet. So far it has been fun. We have been pairing up in groups quite a bit and doing a lot of activities. In our games, we have had a lot of improvising when she says a height we would have to do a move with that height. In our second class we did dance routines one called tumble and the other one was called.It was very fun because we had to always roll on the ground during the tumble.We put together our routines and then did it all together.
LEARNING BUDDIES – SOPHIE
We had learning buddies last week, and also this week! It was super fun; all of our buddies were as cute as ever. Last week we met them, we got to play on the playground with our companions… the best news yet!! This week, we got with our little buddies and created different objects with cardboard. People created stuff like birds, swords, shields, castles,masks, vehicles… and much more!
LITERACY- SOPHIE & KARIS
In literacy, we had to do our summative writing about the 5E community. We had to answer: “What kind of community do you hope to have based on who you are and what you know about each other?” First, we had to list down notes, and then we plan out our plan. Next, we write down our draft#1 on paper. After, comes draft#2 which is on our computers. Soon enough, draft number 3 is here to shine!!! But before that… we have to let our peer/partner check. Now onto the final draft, with our teacher checking it just in case there is/are any mistakes!!!! Finally we can PUBLISH!!!!!
That is our awesome week in 5E!! 5E has lots of interesting trips/activities and we really want to share with you guys… We hope you enjoyed this blog post and look forward to you reading our next one.
