1st Term review for grade 6

Hello, I almost finished the 1st term in grade6! I had a great time challenging myself in Math, English, and Chinese.

I gained lots of knowledge this year, but most of all, I learned most things from Math. I learned more strategies for multiplication and division.

I learned how to use;

  • An area model
  • Long division
  • Spit up then add
  • Estimating
  • Bar model
  • Number line
  • Metal math
  • Calculate in the brain
  • Standard
  • Partial Products…

I like to use the area model the best, it’s the most simple for me. It’s also easy and convenient to use an area model. This is how you can use an area model; 3456 x 234

200                                                                                            30

________________________________________________________________________

4    | __________3000___________________|_______________50_____________________| = _____

|___________400___________________|________________6_____________________|   =  ____                                                                                                           = _______

So 1st, you mutiply 200 & all of the other numbers in the boxs one by one, then add the answers together. Second, you mutiply 30 & all of the other numbers in the boxs one by one, then add the answers together. Third, you repeat the second step but with 4 instead of 30. With all the answers from steps 1 – 3, you add all the answers together.

This term was challenging, but challenging myself makes me learn more.

Next term, I will improve my writing. I have lots of ideas for writing, but I can’t write a lot of detail. That is because I can’t describe things very well. I can seek help from my friends, family, and teacher. Maybe next term, I can write a lot of pages!

This year, I am proud that I could do long division without decimals faster and better. During the Summer, my dad and mom helped me do some division problems. They explained it slowly and clearly so that I could understand. I am proud that I can do better at division now!

My Pypx Cover

This is my Pyp Exhibition cover;

My Central idea is Gender in the Middle Ages influenced their fashion and designs. First, I drew out the girl in the middle, she is the queen of the middle ages. Then I drew out a pleasant beside her for comparison. I also drew the princess so that you can see what the little girls in the Middle ages wear.

I find the dress code for Women in the middle ages un-free. It is very unfair that the girls in the Middle Ages have to cover their hair, wear long dresses and act classy… when men don’t.

I drew the servents dress very dirty and wet, that is because the women servants have to do the housework, make the meals and listen to the men in the family. I made the queen look very classy and high, so it looks like that she will scold the servant when she stands up, but I think that she actually won’t. This is to remind you that the women, especially the royal women Have To Act Classy.

Do you see the servant over there? Look at her clothes, that are ripped, torn and with mud all over it. The women in the Middle Ages are not allowed to spend too much money on clothes, because they need to be proud of their husband’s hard work. I think that it is very unfair, considering the fact that the women have so many rules that the men in the Middle Ages do not.

For covering the women’s hairs, I drew out a bandana for all of them, I even shaded all of them from dark to light.

Overall, I think that it is very unfair that the women have so much more rules that take away their freedom when men don’t, I have a question, What if the men had so many rules that Take Away Their Freedom?

醜小鴨的成長故事

這是醜小鴨的短篇故事。

從前,在湖邊的灌木叢中,有隻媽媽鴨子。她孵出了三個雞蛋,並照顧好了它們。

一天,一些蛋開始破裂。然後,許多小鴨從卵中鑽出。那裡只剩下一個灰色的大蛋。第二天,那個鴨蛋也開始破裂了!然後鑽出的是一隻更大更醜的小鴨。每個人都稱他為醜小鴨。看到他的每個人都欺負他。雞喙對他,他的兄弟姐妹咬了他。他覺得很難過,於是他離開家去外面流浪。

他進去森林裡面,看到的他的動物也都欺負他。他很傷心。秋天到了,天氣越來越冷了,醜小鴨走到了湖邊。他看到了美麗的天鵝在湖邊上飛, 他很羨慕他們的美麗,他在湖面上游泳。醜小鴨的悲傷情緒融化在湖裡,他甚至不在乎水是冷的。最後他精疲力盡,暈倒了。有一個農夫把他救回家了。農夫工作時,他的妻子照顧好醜小鴨。他很快就成為農夫的妻子最愛的。但這個愛,讓農夫家的其他的動物很嫉妒。他們也開始取笑他。

秋天來了,醜小鴨離開了農民的房子。他傷心欲絕,農夫和他的妻子對他如此照顧。他再次回到湖邊,他看到更多美麗的天鵝在飛,一隻天鵝降落在他旁邊。“你也是在取笑我嗎?”醜小鴨心想。然後,更多的天鵝降落在他旁邊。他羞愧地垂下頭,他沒有看到醜陋的鴨子,而是看到了一隻美麗的天鵝代替了他。

別的天鵝開始飛翔,醜陋的小鴨子和他的新夥伴一起飛翔。嗚嗚嗚,他們嗚著。哇!這些天鵝真漂亮!動物們讚嘆到,沒有人能想到,其中一隻美麗的天鵝是他們取笑的醜小鴨。

Blog post Reflection

Today, I had coding as a class with Ms. Fung.

We learned how to use Mu editor to make flowers and patterns, it was really fun trying to make new patterns.

I started by typing Ms. Fung’s code in, then I changed the color of Ms. Fung’s code to pink and brown. In the second experiment, I changed some of the numbers and colors randomly.  Here is my result:

I did that twice and I liked my second result a lot! Here is my second result:

I wanted to learn more about how to make these patterns, so I ask Amila how she made her patterns. We shared the codes and our learning with each other so that we could develop the skills of coding. Amila taught me how to make a large flower and a spike DVD. I taught Amila to make the blue and yellow flower.

Amila also made a beautiful sunflower in python. It looked really hard to make. Amila and I made suggestions to each others code. She helped me make the flowers complete. I told her that she can make the petals of the sunflower bigger and the brown part smaller.

During this coding class, I learned a lot about coding images and that if we need help, we should ask for the help.

My Proposal Reflection

At first, I was nervous as I approached Mrs. Viv. I was scared that I might not get approved. I didn’t get approved, but I was still relieved that I could get approved after I fix my Key concepts. 

When I sat down beside Mrs. Viv, we started to talk. She started by saying hello, I did too. She then ask me if I was nervous, that calmed down because then I knew that Mrs. Viv could understand what I was feeling.

 I could actually say what I felt about my passion; Sewing and designing. Which was a pretty big improvement than the learning level I was at Last year. I think that I need to improve on focusing on a topic. Now, it’s either my topic is too small, too big or too vague.

I learned that for exhibitions, you need to focus on a small topic. It can’t be that big of a topic or vague.

I also need to hurry up, because the deadline is supposed to be today. I have no idea what to do with my topic, so now I am panicking.  

 

醜陋和漂亮對我的定義

對我來說,醜陋和漂亮並不僅僅意味著那個人看起來醜陋或漂亮。我認為醜陋和漂亮也意味著某人有一顆純潔的心或無情。我們學校的人總是說。不要憑封面判斷一本書。所以對我來說,我認為也是一樣。

我認為人們的長相根本不重要。我認為相反,人的內在心才是重要的。讓我舉一個例子。您會和一個無禮而美麗的人一起度過一生嗎?還是您會選擇醜陋但善良的人?

讓我向您解釋,如果您與不禮貌又漂亮的人住在一起。然後,在您的餘生中,您可以享受它們的美麗。但是,由於它們對您不禮貌,您會感到悲傷和憤怒。如果您與有禮但醜陋的人生活在一起。在您的餘生中,您可以享受與他們在一起,與他們交談的時間。您會很高興,因為您受到良好的對待。

因此,我認為醜陋和漂亮可以代表他們的容貌醜陋或漂亮。但這也可以表示他們心地純潔或無情。

 

中文學習目標

我認為現在在中文課上,我會以描述性的方式回答更多的問題。我還認為我會集中精力並更多地考慮這個話題。我知道我可以做好這些事情,因為只要知道答案,我就會描述性地回答問題。我還通過聽別人說的每個字來集中精力。現在,在回答之前,我會考慮更多答案。

我認為我的中文論文寫得不好。因為我需要寫更多的描述性單詞和更長的句子。

如果我更加專心,寫更多的文字,在家學習,我會學得更好。我認為我的中文還可以。

我的中文學習選擇

你好,
我認為我的性格有點害羞,和友好而樂於助人。

我知道我很害羞,因為每當我在陌生人身邊時。我不知道該對他們說什麼。有時候,我可以抵抗恐懼,勇敢。我現在可以正常地與其他人交談,因為現在沒有人會嘲笑我。我也去過更多讓我走出舒適區的活動。例如,美國青年節,團隊精神日或PYPX展覽。

My reflection

Hello!

Last week, my class did a activity called: Place value posters. Place value posters were a page of paper that I wrote. It had seven columns on the page. I wrote 1/10 of my height, 1/100 of my height and 1/1000 of my height. For the ones that are taller then me, I wrote, 10x me, 100x me and 1000x me.

I put down on the page, mostly mountains and stationary. I tried to organize it. I think that I did the Place Value poster pretty slow. But I guess I did alright.

I first did the smaller numbers. I did them with things around the classroom. For 1/10 of me
