Amazing Presentation About Canada

Jim was here to present to us about Canada. We saw the presentation and we had a lot of questions. We listened to famous Canadian music and we saw a ‘pow-wow’ festival (it is a festival that is celebrated by aboriginal people or First Nations of Canada).  We saw Canada’s Womens and Mens hockey team win the gold metal from Vancouver 2010. WOO HOO !!  We did this to learn more about Canada.

Our Super Awesome Mega Blog!!

On Wednesdays if we have earned enough good behaviuor points we get to blog! We blog in our class with three teams of three students and one team of four students. All the students of year four get to blog.

Blogging is when you have 4 teams and each team chooses a topic to write about. The topics are always about something that year 4 has done.

We blog to learn to work in a team and that we can do more together. We practice our English and editing skills. We learn new words. We also blog to share with our family and friends in other classrooms what we are up to in year 4!

New Math Unit Interview

Mrs. Siqueira’s interview of Bruna about our new math unit:

1.) What is our new unit in math?

Our new unit is the multiplication unit.

2.) How did you feel when we started the new unit?

I felt afraid because I don’t know so much about multiplication.

3.) What do you remember from last year about multiplication?

x is the symbol for multiplication.

You need two numbers to make an equation.

If we skip count we get the multiples of a number. For example 3,6,9,12,15,18,21,24,27,30…

4.) What is the multiplication chart tell us?

It tells us all the multiples of a number and the answers of some questions.

5.) How do we use the multiplication chart?

First, you find the number on the top row , for example 7, then you find the number on the side column , for example 6, then you follow the row and column until the meet. 7×6=42

6.) Anything else you want to share about our new unit?

The unit is a little bit difficult. I am nervous to have the test so I will have to study a lot!

Thank you sharing Bruna!!

 

Math Graphing

Hello guys,

Today we are going write about math graphing.

A few days ago we started drawing pictographs. Pictographs are very awesome! We made vertical and horizontal graphs.

We explored some graphs like circle graphs. Circle graphs can be called PIZZA GRAPHS!

Pictographs have keys and they help so we know the number of symbols and what they represent.

Zika Project

Last Wednesday we did a project, it’s not your typical project!  It was…

A ZIKA PROJECT!

Yes, a Zika project. We had to make posters about how to prevent Zika and the common symptom of Zika. When we were doing this work we were working in pairs! When we chose our partner Mrs. Siqueira gave us sentences to copy on a piece of paper. Some of us had Zika prevention and some of us had Zika symptoms. Once we copied the sentences we made a picture to match. Mrs. Siqueira said when we finish our school will make a pamphlet to give to our neighbours so they don’t get in Zika.

How do you prevent Zika? Have you done this project as well? Do you have the same types of mosquitos as us?

Paper Blogs

We have completed our last lesson before we are able to post online as class. We have been working on online safety and today we practiced appropriate and productive commenting on our papers blogs. Each of us made a ‘paper blog’ writing a paragraph on a chosen topic of interest. After editing and decorating we shared our blogs with each other.

We each took turns reading each others blogs and commenting using Post-its to answer questions, share a connection or add a comment. We learnt that to make a comment we must read the whole thing carefully and not to rush so we understand everything we are commenting on. It was a great introduction to our new reality and we are ready to start to share more of what we are up to each week.
