Recount

This week my class has been doing descriptive recounts. My class needed to write recount, we had a choice to write about the Wizard of Oz show or the arranging seats in my classroom 5A. My first recount topic was about when class 5A were arranging seats. When we finished the recount the class had to show they're recount to our literacy group.We had to share it to our literacy group to see our descriptive words.

Here's a sample of my recount writing:

Recount of Arranging Seat

Yesterday in class 5A, we started  a new unit called Transitions. Our central idea was Transition involve changes that require adaptations. Our classroom rule is that when there is a new unit, we change seats.

This is the link to my writing to see what I wrote:  Recount

Measurement Station

These past few weeks my class grade 5A had a new math unit, called measurement. We had been doing measurements stations. There are different stations, it was a lot of fun and I had learned little by little from each station.

My first station was the time station. I was with Melissa and Karolina. We were supposed to find what type of job do we want then find out how much does they make a day, week or year. I chose a hotel manager, they make 950$ dollar a month. Sadly I didn't finish.

My second station is the Mass station. I was working with Minsoo and Xavier. We were supposed to compare the weight and size of the different items: rock/block of wood, one litter of water.

My third station is the volume station. I was working with Minsoo and Xavier. We were supposed to find out how much centimeter cube can fill the container or the book. Container A can contain 500 centimeter cube, container B can contain 618. 75 centimeter cube, the Oxford Primary can contain      1, 128. 75 centimeter cube and the thing that can contain the most centimeter cube is the Atlas book, it can contain 1, 540. 5.

My fourth station was the Kool-Aid activity. I was working alone. I am supposed to record how much Kool-Aid powder and how much water. I had 10 ml of Kool-Aid powder and 170 ml of cold water.

Reflection about our kindergarten visit

This week my class is having a new unit that is called Transition Involve Change That Requires Adaptation. We grade 5 think about our growth from kindergarten to 5th grade. When I visit to kindergarten I played blocks. I was making a house with my partner but we were not cooperative so the house was not finish and had broke down. We were not thinking about how long is the block to make the width big or small. So when I was back in kindergarten like I went back in time I didn't really think and just play but if it is like 5th grade I would measure how long is the block and how should the width look like.

UOI Exhibition

 This week in PYPX every group had to choose a specialist for each week to show in their presentation. My group had chose two specialist one of the specialists was with Mrs. Conroy and Mrs. Andrea. At first when we chose the specialist we thought it would be cordial but it wasn't really going so well. Even though the choices felted regretful my group turned it upside down.

 I learned that my group should think every plan of ours should be think through be for doing it and now it is going really well.

Now I am wondering if what will happen if I didn't ask those question, would everything going to be fine or is it going to be a disaster. I wonder what is gonna happen in the PYPX Presentation day.

Music Concert Response

 Hi at March 15 Thursday, two weeks ago from now there was a music concert about grade 4 and 5 concert at UNIS Hanoi theatre. What happened was that the show was meant to show grade 4 and 5 progress and talent in music class to show the parents to let them know what we did in music class.

 First was the grade 5 band, I wasn't in the band I was in strings.  The band played three songs and one of the song was Mickey Mouse it sounded really good and by my opinion it was the best out of all of the three songs. Next it was the strings turn to shine in the theatre.

 The cello went first. They rocked two songs and then the violin came, I was a violin player. Our two songs were Tap dancer and another song that I forgotten. After when the violin played the two songs. The violin and the cello played a song called Tip Toe Boo.

 When the grade 5 string was done they would give their instruments to the grade 4 so they have enough instruments to play. Once we the strings done giving our babies away we went up stair to Mrs. Noor's classroom. We lined up into a ginormous line for the next show after the grade 4 string performance. When the grade 4 had finish their instrument songs the grade 5 has once again took the stage.

 We had brought some basketballs to play. The past few months we grade 5 has been playing a basketball performance. I wasn't there to see it but the basketball performance that was a little splash on the stage.

After the basketball corruption the whole grade 5 and 4 sang a lot of phenomenal songs. The song we grade 5 sang was On Top of The World and Hold Back The River. The last song we grade 5 and 4 sang together Have You Ever Seen The Rain. My singing was horrible but the song was really delightful.

In my opinion the music performance was phenomenal and outstanding but I was pretty sad that my parents didn't come to not even any relative. Beside everything else it was amazing.

Exhibition

In the Exhibition my group is having some difficulties. One of our group member is not doing what is he supposed to do. We are trying to help him by asking him what he have to do and we also sit with him to see what is he doing but he is making things more difficult.  We also don't know what we are doing next. We are having other plans and we don't agree on any of our plans. Right now we are in a bad situation.

But everything is not really that bad two people has finish their research. Even the person that isn't doing his job is actually helping a lot by asking people for help and now we know what to do. That time we didn't want people to help or even we didn't know who should help us. We are even having fun when it' s a bad time, we always know how to have fun if it's a bad day. Now I think it's a really nice group.

Right now what we are doing is writing down our research into a paragraph. We are also doing our Week 3 Exhibition Chart. I put down:
Kelly did the most, I did the 2nd one that did the most, Xavier is the one who did 3rd most of the work and Jingyun is the one who did not too much work.
I think my group can do a lot more and think more. Right now I don't know what to do but until then see my next blog.BYE!!!!!!

Concert

In this pass month the grade 5 and grade 4 has been singing and playing instruments for a concert for the parents to see. I was playing the violin. I was learning first finger and then second finger. For me first finger notes and songs were easy but when I learned second finger it was harder and some times when I was playing some of the music it was to fast for me to catch up with the others. In music class we have been singing Hold back the river, Have you seen the rain and a imagine dragon song that I forgot. All of the song is really easy to memorize for me. On the performance day that is today 15/3/2018. I felt confidence, not scared or anything. The trouble on the performance was keeping up with everyone's paste and forgot about one song so that was embracing.

Assessment

This week my class was doing an assessment so the teacher knows what should the teacher helps us with and what we need to improve.

My first assessment was doing math. At the beginning of the math assessment was easy, but when it was on the part two of the assessment was a little bit harder. I felt pretty comfortable with my answer and good about my answer.

My second assessment was a reading assessment it was not that hard because I can see back what the story and make it right. Now when I read the story faster than the other grades and i did not regret what I put down.

My third and last was writing and I am not a good writer so that's what I should improve. My teacher talled us to write two subject. One was would you like to be famous and the other one is to write a story about this old shoe. I was almost finish and I thought I wrote faster.

Math

In math my class has been doing percentages because I think it connects to our UOI unit that is Government. I also think that because my teacher Mr. Nathan says that it is not a grade 5 work. I was lucky that it wasn't a grade 5 work because I don't know how to do the adding and the dividing work. I hope one day I will know how to do the dividing and the adding percentages.
