My favorite subject in Math is decimals because we get to learn numbers between other numbers. The class also learned how to add and subtract decimals too. We learned that you could convert decimals to fractions, and fractions to decimals.
Writing was very fun because we got to write and create scripts on our chrome books. We had to work as a group in the Revolutionary War. We wrote lots of parts for my group.
In Reading my favorite thing was the social issues book clubs. My group (Ronald, Bora, Taj, Grant, and me) was reading a book called “Shiloh”. It was a fascinating book about a kid and a dog. I couldn’t wait for the next part of the story!
Social Studies was interesting because we learned a lot about the history of the world. My favorite subject in social studies was the Revolutionary War. We researched a lot about colonial history in the 1600s, and we also got to do a toy theater too! We have to rehearse our scripts and make characters. The research was very fun.
My favorite subject in Science was creating runoffs from slopes. We created slopes from dirt and also planted grass in the slopes. The grass grew very tall and learning about runoffs and animals is really interesting.
My favorite thing in Music was the opera duet because we got to create our own opera and record it on garage band. There were lots of sound effects that you could add on to your opera. My partner was Alex, and we did our topic on Xbox and Wii.
The best song that I thought in Chorus was singing this song called,”Everyday People”. It’s about segregation and how people don’t get along together. It is a very fun song to sing because there are two parts, the melody and the harmony.
P.E. is very hard because we need to do lots of exercises like push-ups. My favorite thing in P.E. was doing this game called “Battle Ship”. It’s about 4 teams and you throw balls at the bowling pins lined up. P.E. is very fun!
Art is very creative because we got to create lots of things. My favorite thing in Art was creating with clay. We made figures and monsters out of clay. That part was awesome!
In Spanish we learn lots of words and numbers. My favorite subject in Spanish is creating creencasts and working with my friends. We have to add the screencast to our site and share it to our Spanish teacher, Senor Johnson.
In Instruments I learn lots of things when I play the violin. The teacher, Dr. Schultz, teaches me positions to hold my violin. I play lots of challenging pieces of music. My favorite song is “Watermelon Man”.
I accomplished my goals for 4th grade. I read challenging books, behaved, made more friends, and to do all of my homework. I accomplished my goals by listening to the teacher, reading books, and focusing to the instructions that Mrs. Rickard gave. My goals for 5th grade is to work on my flexibility in P.E., and to do very very challenging math.
