  1. 1. Hello, This is where you will see what I done so far this year.
  2. 2. Fourth grade is very awesome. At the beginning of the year I was always losing or forgetting things but now I hardly lose or forget anything. I have met a ton of friend since I started school. My favorite subject in school is P.E. P.E is my favorite because you get to do a lot of fun things. My favorite teacher is Mr. Thornbury. Our class has English, LLB or ESOL, Science, Social Studies, Math, Reader’s Workshop, Writer’s Workshop, P.E, Art, Music, counselor, library, recess and lunch. Our homework is sometimes hard and sometimes easy.

  4. 4. On the blog we get to response to some interesting things Ms. Blovad tells us to. We even sometimes go to websites to do research on some of the topics. We have book buddies. My book buddy is Calen. We also have Lee Elementary Buddies. Incase you did not know what it is, I will tell you what it is. Lee Elementary buddies are also fourth graders from the U.S where Ms. Blovad used to teach before she came to Shanghai. My Lee Elementary buddies are Spencer and Samantha. The thing I am most proud of is writing back and forth to my book buddy. My goal is to use better vocabulary words in my writing to my book buddy.

  6. 6. In reading we had already been reading a ton of genres. My favorite genres are mystery, adventures, and scary stories. In our book buddy we have read the books called Because of Winn-Dixie, A lion to guard us, The City of Ember and James and the giant peach. We also had to response to our book buddy on Ms. Blovad’s blog. Now we are basically focusing on our Historical Fiction books. My Historical Fiction book is called Pedro’s Journal. The thing I am most proud of is that now I can read even more harder books. My goal is to read even more harder books and understand the story.

  8. 8. In writing we have wrote narrative stories, personal, friendly letters, and comic using Comic Life. The most recent type of writing we wrote are essays. We have wrote three essays. The first one is about wildfires. The second one is about if you want to live on Kodiak Island or not. The third one is about Why Shihuangdi was a successful ruler. To grade how we are doing on our writing we use Rubrics. The most thing I hate about writing is that you have to write a lot of things in cursive. I also learned how to edit and revise my own writing or my friend’s. The thing I am most proud of is in my writing is now I learned how to write essays. My Goal is to do a better job on my essays and improve my cursive writing.
  9. 9. In math we had learned a ton of things. My favorite thing in math is finding out area. I like area the best in math because I think it is very easy. The thing I hate most in math is division. Division problems solving is very hard for me. The rest of the topics like multiplying, fractions, geometry, perimeter, estimating and measuring angles are all O.K to me. The thing I am most proud of in math is fractions cause that is the area I got the best test score. My goal is to improve my division so that I can do a little bit faster and still get correct answers.
  10. 10. In social studies we have learned a lot of things about the Qin Dynasty. And now we are studying the Han Dynasty. I like the Qin Dynasty better because although Shiunangdi was a cruel emperor but he still did many great things for China. For example he started The Great Wall of China. The thing that I am most proud of is my Qin essay because I think I did a good job on it. My goal is to learn more about the Han Dynasty because I do not know a lot of things about it.
  11. 11. For science we switch to Ms. Frazier’s classroom and her class goes to Ms. Blovad’s classroom for social studies. I am O.K with switching. We have learned water and are now studying on electricity. The most recent experiment we had did are trying to make a light bulb light with battery with our shoulder partners. We have also learned about open and closed circuits. The thing that I am most proud of is when I made the light bulb light up because I never did that before. My goal is to get 100% on every single of my science test because I hardly get any hundreds on my science tests.
  12. 12. 1. P.E 9. Recess 2. Art 10. Tech 3. Music 11. Fun Friday 4. Library 5. Counselor 6. LLB 7. Reading Buddies 8. Lunch
  13. 13. P.E is very fun. You get to do a lot of fun activities and get a lot of exercise done. My favorite part about P.E is when we get to go to the Mat room. I like going to the awesome Mat room. It has really fun things in there and Mr. Thornbury always planned fun activities for us to do. The part I hate most is when you have to run on the track. I do not like running the track because it is very boring and tiring to do. One thing I am most proud of in P.E is my basketball. My goal in P.E is to run faster because I think I need to speed up my running.
  14. 14. In art we had completed a ton of artworks. My favorite artwork that I had completed is a bug that I drew on my sketch book. The thing I hate most about art is when I have to draw a lot of things that I do not like to draw. My goal in art is to draw better because I do not think my drawing is very good.
  15. 15. In music we had been playing the xylophones and the recorder. The most recent song we learned how to sing is the Chopsticks and the Whacky Do Re Mi. I like singing the Chopsticks better because it is easier and shorter. My goal in music is to play better on the xylophones.
  16. 16. We get to go to the library once a week to check out books. Sometimes in special events we held our activities there too. And in the library you also get to browse around Destiny Quest and see what books you have checked out, write down some recommendations on books you have already read so that your friends might be interested in those books too. My favorite part about library is you get to check out a lot of books.
  17. 17. To me counselor is very boring. We always let Mr. Woods do all the talking and we sat there most of the time. But the good part about it is you get to sit back and relax. The boring part is when you have to do some worksheets about your feeling and things like that.
  18. 18. LLB is when I get to learn my Chinese. In LLB it is sometimes fun and sometimes boring. It is fun when we have a party. It is boring when we have to do a test. My favorite part about LLB is really not anything. The part I hate about LLB is when we get a ton of homework.
  19. 19. We have reading buddies from Ms. Borden’s class. My reading buddy use to be Richard but he left so now my reading buddy is Jennifer. I kind of like reading buddies because you don’t have to do anything except for reading to my buddy.
  20. 20. Lunch is a O.K to me. In lunch all I get to do is eat and talk to my friends. I like lunch when there is very good food. I do not like lunch when the food is not very good to me and all I can eat is sandwich or some fruits.
  21. 21. Recess is the best thing in school because it is your free time and you get to play whatever you want to play. I kind of like indoor recess because you can go on the computers. But the bad thing about indoor recess is that you can not run around like you can outside. When is outdoor recess I play basketball and soccer a lot.
  22. 22. Fun Friday is something that you get to do on Friday if you did not miss any homework. But if you miss one homework you will go to the work room. Also at Fun Friday you get to play computers. It is also one of my favorite things to do in school.
