Math Unit 4 Reflection

In unit four of math, I learned about decimals and how to subtract and add them too. I had forgot a bit about decimals since third grade so this was a chance to restore my memory. I learned about tenths hundredths and thousandths. I learned how to convert them into words or into numbers. I really enjoyed this unit and hope we have this much fun in the future units!

UOI Unit 4 (Feedback On The Energy Summit)

In this unit, we had an energy project. I chose to talk about the timeline of energy and it’s future since I was interested in when energy was made and who created it. I wanted to know which energy our ancestors used the most. I made a poster, filled in a research booklet, made a short cartoon, and gave the people a short quiz on my computer. I think I did great! We got graded too so I was really stressed! Plus we only had one week to complete everything! I think everybody presented well and did great! I hope we get to do more projects in the future!

Reading Unit 2

I loved our reading unit! We did many things that we liked, including research! My group and I researched about lions. We ended up with lots of information. I learned that nonfiction text has less text than fiction text. The books are also shorter and don’t have characters. I enjoy fiction more because it expands my imagination and is fun to read. I noticed that nonfiction comes in short series while fiction have many books in one series. I really enjoyed researching with my group and I hope we can do more research in the future.

Writing Unit 2

In my writing unit, I wrote a persuasive essay about soccer and that it is the best sport ever. We had to use the OREO structure (Opinion, Reason, Evidence, Opinion Restated). We also used in paragraphs and had to have three reasons accompanied by a short memory and fact/interesting thing. We learned that we have to hook the readers while giving information to them. I enjoyed writing the informational essay and think I did great!

 

Math Unit Three Reflection

Today I learned about multiples. I learned that multiples are the products of two factors. I was actually surprised when I learned this. I also learned about prime and composite numbers. Prime numbers cannot be multiplied or divided by any other number then 1 and itself while composite numbers can be multiplied and divided by other numbers too. Our teacher told us about factors and what they were (Which I already knew about). So there wasn’t that much to learn in that part of the unit. I think I had a really good lesson! Did anyone else in grade 4AJ enjoy?
