Online learning

The hardest thing about online learning is that it is annoying having to write in a screen. I want to write on a piece of paper. I have learned how important being with someone is when you learn. Each day, I keep myself motivated by talking to friends.

Global Experience

The best thing about global experience was definitively watching everybody getting ready and having so much fun. My favorite part of the work leading up to it was for me making the something went wrong cards. It was so hilarious coming up with things that could go wrong! I’ve grown as a learner because I think that I learned more facts about Hindu weddings than I ever learned in any other global experience. Learning about another country is important because you should know how other countries work. I think the best thing about it being student-driven is that you really get to choose how you want to represent what you’re learning about.

Learning about families and refugees

We went to junior and senior kindergarten to learn about refugees and families.  We saw stories about families made by senior kindergarten, we saw books about refugees. I was so impressed by all their hard work. It was so cool seeing all the things learned.

Caste System

Caste System: Purpose of the Caste System:I feel there is no purpose whatsoever. I don’t like the Caste system.My opinion on the Caste System:I feel that the caste system is very unfair.Reasons:Reason 1: I think that the Caste System is unfair because If you were in the  upper caste, you can do whatever you want. But if you decide to be a farmer, all of the sudden people disrespect you because you decide to do a job that people in the lower caste do. Reason 2:  I don’t see why just because your ancestors had low jobs, you can’t go any higher. Why should you be separated on what your jobs are? What’s the difference between people that have lower jobs and people that have higher jobs?Reason 3: People can be very disrespected just because of their jobs.Because of these reasons, I feel the caste system is very unfair.

India (Social studies)

Hi, I am here to update you about Social Studies. If you forgot, we are learning about India. If you didn’t now this is for global experience. So far I have learned a lot about India. Including landmarks, population, and most of all traditional weddings. Why traditional weddings? Well, very 3rd and 4th grader has a topic they want to learn more about. Mine happens to be traditional weddings in India. So, I have been learning about traditional weddings in India. The way I will teach others about traditional weddings in India, is by making a board game. If you want to know more about this fun game, when you come to global experience (or if you come) make sure to check out my wonderful board game (hope you don’t get to bored).  A surprising fact about India is that they is that the bride so beautiful with jewelry and everything.

Math

In math we are making a fast food restaurant. How it includes math is by counting money and geometry. So far me and my partner have made our “blueprint” of where everything will be in the restaurant. I am exited about counting the money.

Superpower

If I could have any superpower I would have the superpower to have every superpower. I would use my superpower to make sure everything is safe in the town. I would not use my superpower on a regular basis, so I would not hurt myself or others and so I don’t destroy buildings.

Reflection on school

I am feeling good about my work. I feel I may be a little ahead of the class for math, but usually I am really with the class. I am always using a growth mindset. I feel that when you fail it is more fun because then it is not like you just do it correctly the first time and then you don’t have to fix anything. When you do that it is really boring. I am hoping to do more recordings of myself reading because so far I have only done 1 recording of me reading.

RCD

I learned how to work better with the fourth graders.

I learned that thinking positive can make the chances of working well in a group way more likely.

I really enjoy the game where we had a tarp and a ball and we had to do all kinds of things with it. It was fun making strategies that were creative and new.

I enjoyed lunch because we were all so hungry. It was fun laughing and talking together.

Weekly Blogging

Publishing Party: We had a publishing party for our non-fiction books. I think mine is really good! I finally finished because I had to do 15 pages of illustrations. But, I finally finished!!

Drama: In Drama we are doing really fun games! I love the games. Some of the games are: Zip Zap Zop, Pass the Sound and What am I Doing. We are also doing commercials. My group for the commercials are Shiri in second grade, Maddy in second grade and Zoe in fourth grade. Our commercial is about a yellow shovel but we are pretending it is a picture hanger. Shiri is the narrator and me, Maddy and Zoe are the actors. What’s gonna happen is that Shiri (narrator) is going to say, ” Have you ever been like this family where you don’t have a hanger to hang your picture?” And then I will say (in a baby voice),”Mommy (talking to Zoe) I can’t find a picture hanger for my picture I made today in art!” Then Maddy (big sister) will say,”Here you go here’s a new picture hanger!” And then I say (in a baby voice),” Yayyyyyyy!” So that’s our commercial! I like drama!!!

Yearbook: We are making a second grade yearbook of things we did in second grade and second grade only. We also are doing something in the yearbook where we write about someone without using there name. But they will know if it is them. The main challenge is writing about them without using there name.

Read-a-thon: In the read-a-thon we have almost beat our new goal of 6,000 minutes. We totally past our 3,000 goal!!

Writer’s Workshop: We are now studying personal narratives. I love the unit of personal narratives!

Reader’s Workshop: In readers workshop we are learning about poetry. There are so many different kinds of poetry. There are ones with punctuation, no punctuation, wide text, small text, active one, calm one, long one and shorts ones. That is one of the reasons I like poetry.

Gym: Our track unit has gotten much better! I now sorta like it.
