Immigration #4

If you saw my last blog post on my immigration project, you would know what it’s all about, and were I’m at with it. But if you haven’t read my last posts i’ll update you, I interviewed my babysitter named Edith, I had to make a slideshow, how to plan it out, and some more stuff that’s not that important….

Ok, so last time I talked about what I found simple, and what I found difficult, and I also mentioned that my next step was to make a slideshow on this immigration project. I have completed the slide show today, and I’m very proud of it… The reasons I’m proud of it is because, one, it took me a super long time not just to make, but plan it to. I had to plan it by making charts and on the tops it said something like, slide number, what your going to say, and picture. And believe me… That took a very long time!

After I planned out my slide show, it was actually time to put it all together. It was pretty complicated to put together. Let me explain, I had to make a cover, and it had to look amazing, but it’s also required to make the slideshow four minutes. And believe me… It’s hard… But I’m almost there, I’m currently at three minutes, forty five seconds. I only need fifteen more seconds, and then I’m DONE. But from what I have in my video, I think it looks great, and I know for a fact that in the end, all my hard work will pay off!

Overall this project has been GREAT! And I really enjoyed the experience, and I hope to do another project using Spark Video, because it’s a really fun website/app to use, and play around with! BYE!

4th Grade Reflection

Getting The Roots Down

At the beginning of the year, school was very exciting! We worked on fairly simple things. After a few weeks or so, school was cool! My teacher, Mrs. Rickard was telling how many projects and fun/awesome things we would be doing this year. From that moment I knew this year would be awesome!


What We Did This Year

Personally I thought this year was a pretty good year. We did what normal 4th graders do, I mean we did Math, Writing, Reading, Science, and Social Studies.  Honestly I don’t know what it was but I just loved everything we did this year! During Math we did, decimals, rounding, area and perimeter, fractions, and lots more things. During Writing we did, nonfiction writing, poetry, and also biography. In Reading really all we did was read, and book clubs… Then in science we did some land and water experiments, and some Science sheets. Last but not least Social Studies… In social studies we did, really just Colonial America.

Favorite Subject

My favorite subject was probably writing if you couldn’t tell from this blog post. My favorite subject was writing because ever since 1st grade my teachers told me I was an amazing writer, and from then that made me inspired to write more, and well now I just love writing.


Projects We Did This Year

The first project we did during the year was something called a curiosity project. In case you’re wondering a curiosity project is, it is when you pick a topic you wanna research on then make a slideshow in drive. For my topic I did Golden Retrievers. I did Golden Retrievers because i’ve always loved dogs but especially that certain breed, so I figured why not do my project on Golden Retrievers. Another project we did was, Colonial America. Personally I loved this project because I thought researching about this topic was very fascinating. The last project I can remember is making my WeVideo. WeVideo is an app that lets you make these cool videos. I made a PSA about Ocean pollution. Just in case you’re wondering a PSA is a public service announcement.


Favorite Project

My favorite project this year was probably my Ocean PSA. My Ocean PSA was my favorite project because, I think it’s important to keep the Ocean clean. Alos it’s important to let everyone know what is happening to our Oceans when we litter.


Read Aloud

My class and I have read a few books for read aloud. Some books we read were, “Blood On The River”, “Book Scavenger”, “The Tiger Rising”. All those books were amazing! I really did like read aloud. “Blood On The River” was a historical fiction book,  “Book Scavenger” was a mystery book, And “The Tiger Rising” was a fiction book. Those books were some of the best books i’ve ever read.


Favorite Read Aloud

My favorite read aloud was “Book Scavenger”. I like “Book Scavenger” because it was a mystery book and my favorite genre is mystery. I also really like this book because it was very interesting, because a girl named Emily finds a book called “The Gold Bug” and it is a very interesting and strange book. If you wanna find out more read the book!


The End of 4th Grade

Sadly 4th grade is coming to an end. This year was a really great year, and one of the best! I really hope next year will be as good as this year!
