At the beginning of the fifth grade year for some strange reason I thought 5th grade would not be like every other year, and I was right. 5th grade was extraordinary. I will share some highlights of my year as a 5th grader, Such as some of my successes. Further, I will show you some my improvements. I will describe some of my favorite events that are equally important. Lastly I will tell you some life lessons. Now lets begin with some of my successes…..
Here are 3 areas where I was the most successful. In math I always get most questions correct on post tests. Next, group work is easy because collaborating with my peers helps a lot when solving problems. Third, I was successful with descriptive language in writing. These are the 3 areas where I was successful the most.
Each year at J.W.Reason I make lots of improvements, here are 3 examples. First In social studies I learned so much about the new world and the explorers who went there. Another improvement is I have read many more books. Also in math I learned new things such as algebra and consecutive numbers. These are 3 examples of my improvements.
Here are 3 of my favorite events this year. One thing is MR. Jones is the first main guy teacher I have ever had. There is also art which I am really good at. In addition at field day I had lots of fun. These are 3 of my favorite things this year.
Here are 3 of the many life lessons I learned this year. First is, we have the right to be treated with respect. Additionally is, we have the right to speak and be listened to. Finally, we have the right to do our best. These are a few life lessons I will remember.
We have come to the end so lets review this. I showed you some of my successes. Later I shared some of my improvements. Then I let you know about my favorite events. Furthermore I told you some life lessons. I will never forget this year because it was one of the best.
we were asked to write a story using coordinates on a coordinate grid. Here is my story. We had 10 days to study using ten study pages. I did not know about it until the second day of studying. By the 5th day of studying I had 6 pages done but my annoying little brother erased 3 pages of it on the next day. I had 5 pages done on day eight and 7 on day 10. But when I got to school everyone had a different paper. It turns out during the weekend everyone got a different paper so I had studied for nothing.
I am reading The Terrible Two by Mac Barnett. I am showing this review to you because this book is awesome. In this book legendary prankster Miles Murphy is forced to leave his school and friends to go to Yawnee valley (known only for cows). In other words Yawnee valley is boring. So he assumes he'll be the best prankster at this school too. But the school already has a prankster-and he's good. Really good. So the prank war begins.... I recommend this book to everyone who has not read this book and who like pranks. I hope you enjoyed this review and I hope you enjoy The Terrible Two.
Here is the book trailer for this really funny book!
One day at school we were told to solve the problem above. I got 5 days for my answer. I got 5 for my answer because if the ant climbs 4 feet up the well every day it would be like subtracting 4 from 12. I chose to subtract 4 because when the ant climbs 4 feet up the well it has 4 feet less to climb. Then I counted up how many times 4 was subtracted, every time 4 was subtracted would be a day and I got 5 days for my answer. Some people got the same answer as me but some did not. We got paired up with somebody who did not get the same answer as us and had to persuade them that 5 days was right and they had to try to do the same with us. Both me and my partner stuck with our (different) answers. The correct answer we found out was 5 days! This problem was fun and I hope we do something like this sometime soon!
In the video above a student gives random compliments to people on Facebook and Twitter inspires his whole school to do the same. This video makes me feel how surprising it is that one student could make this happen. This might work at our school but I am not sure. this video teaches me that one sincere compliment can create something amazing like this. This inspires me while thinking about 6th grade that this could be a very useful tool in middle school. As long as nobody uses it for bullying... Anyway this is why I think this video makes a very positive impact.
My favorite days at school are the days we have art class. But that day we had a substitute art teacher. So he taught us about James Rizzi. He is a more current Artist who looked at buildings and thought "So dull". "What if they were alive"? "What if they had arms and legs?" And that was his inspiration. In art class we did tons of those types of buildings. Squidward's house, A pyramid, and even and Ice cream cone!!!! That was The best art class ever!!!!!!
Last week I took a post test on adding and subtracting fractions and mixed numbers.One of the things I found easy was word problems because you have to find the operation in the problem.I am proud of my work because I got every answer correct.
