Time To Refelect-Unit 4

1. Tell why you think it is important to be able to divide numbers. For what kind of problems do you need to use division?

I think the one reason you need to know division is when you go to different countries and the money has a difference in the amount of money so. Like I am from the U.S.A and there is a $8 money difference from Hong Kong.

2. Tell what part of this unit was the most difficult for you and why. Describe what you did to overcome any difficulties you had.

I think that learning the Partcial Quotents. I find the it easer to do the Long Division Method.


Last week you read the story of the Sower and the Seed. (Matthew 13:1-23). Summarize the story including what the story is about, who are the
the people in the story, what lesson(s) did they learn, and how you can connect what you have learned to your life.

This is the one parable that Jesus explained to the people. Jesus got in a boat so all the people could hear him well because this was a important parable. There are four seeds that fall among something and they all mean something different. A farmer drops some seeds on the ground and the crows(The Evil) comes along and eats them. The next seed falls among rocky places where it wont have much soil. Other seeds fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. The others fall into good soil and grow well and stays alive for many years to come, it is like the man that hers the word of the Lord and stays with it for ever.

Writing Self Assessment

1. What do I notice about myself as a writer as I read through my work? As I read through my work I like to make sure I don't have so many errors in my writing. I also check to see if I have used "I" to much or if I just have the same word to many times in a sentence. Some times after I have checked over my writing a few times I like someone else to check it too. I do lots of writing not just for the writing but also to get better at the editing process.

2. How have I changed as a writer so far?
I think that I have changed in many ways because now I know how to use better word choice and to look back at the writing and make any changes if I need to. I now also know how to make sure I stay on the same subject in the story or piece of writing. One thing that I still need work on is the punctuation that I have not learned how to use yet.

3. What are three things I do well as a writer? I revise my work to the point were there are no mistakes. I don't use the same word over and over again unless I have to. And I always make sure my writing explains everything I needed to say.

4. What are some things I want to get stronger at as a writer? Using the punctuation that I have not learned yet. And letting the reader feel as if they were in the writing theme self.

5. What is my favorite piece, and what are the things I love about it?
I love writing about either the first thing that comes into my mind or about something that I have experienced in the past. I love it because I like sharing my life.

What I liked about Factor Captor. I like Factor Captor because it helps me learn all or most of the factors of numbers that I don't know the factors of. I think the game also helps with my multiplication facts. Another thing I liked about the game was that it not only helps with my multiplication, it also helps with adding high numbers to get the score of the game.
Explain how making an array might help someone find factors of a number. To make an array you have to know how many rows and columns you are going to have. By that you have to put what you have drawn into a number sentence, like say you have six dots in a row and seven dots in a column then you do 6x7=42. Then you have to go back to your array and count all the dots to see if they add up to 42.
Look back at journal pages 2-28. What activity did you like the most and what did you learn. My favorite activity is on page 16 it is called Prime and Composite Numbers. There was a list of numbers and we had to put a P next to the numbers that were Prime and put a C next to the numbers that were Composite. I learned what a prime number was and what a composite number was.

Writing Rocks, Math not so much

Writing:I love to write stories about about anything. I feel that in writing you can express your feelings in a way that no one knows. I learn more about writing by reading other writings that are good ,like a book or a friends writing. When I write I have to write a scratch writing first then have some one edit the writing,then I can look it over myself. After I have all my spelling correct, my capitalization is correct, my punctuation is good and all that other stuff is done I write, and write, and write.
Math: Math is not my best subject in school, but if I have someone helping and taking me through the steps of a math problem I could probably get it done in ten minutes. I only need help when I am struggling with something. I find math a little complicated to learn with background noises. I would say my best subject in math is multiplication and dividing. And like I said math just is not me best subject so I find it hard to learn it fast. It takes time for me to really understand something in math.
