Today I had a great day. I got to know a lot about Tejal (a new student) today. I hope review to the word condensation and be able to give a thorough definition of it tomorrow. On the other hand, I finished all of my word work, and also asked if I could move on to list 3 in spelling(the highest list) because most of the words I misspelled was one or two letters away. I made 100% on today's quick check, and also on the previous three days quick check. I am also really proud of one of my classmates, Ian W., because he went to the DISTRICT SPELLING BEE! I had an EPIC day today.

P.S. Yesterday a new student named Basem joined our class, Y5

January 7, 2016

Today I had an amazing day. I finished most of my persuasive essay's thinking map/brainstorm. I also enjoyed reading to my kinder buddy. One thing I can definitely improve on is my science vocabulary. I had an awesome day.

January 8, 2016

Today I had an okay/wonderful day. We were in our Social Studies group when something sorta happened. But towards the end of the day we sorted things out. Other than that I had an amazing day. Enjoyed learning about financial literacy; we learned about tax, income tax, state income tax, other tax, and many more. I also only missed one question on matter task cards. The question I missed was pretty easy actually. I had a splendid day today.

P.S. I made a 100% on my homework, not including the question where you answer a question and the answer varies. I also made a 100% on my Fraction Review.

January 11, 2016

Today I had an exciting day. I meet Ines, our teachers neighbor in Montenegro. Ona je puno dobra. She is really good. She told us about where she's from and she is really kind. though something I can work on today was slowing down a little on the double map comparing August from the book Wonder and Esperanza from the book Esperanza Rising.

Today was superb!

January 12, 2016

Today I had an epic day. I created a lightbulb that lighted with a copper wire, a battery, and obviously, a light bulb. How we did that was we scraped a little of the outer coat on the copper wire to make it easier to transfer energy. We connected the copper wires to each side of the battery, the positive side and the negative side. We brought both ends together and placed the lightbulb on top. Something I can work on is logging out of all of my google accounts and slowly probably all my accounts because I don't know what happened to my Smile Train persuasive essay brainstorm/thinking map. That was kinda sad but other than that I had a terrific Tuesday.

P.S. I made it to top 10 in math olympiad. YAY!

January 13, 2016

Today I had an amazing day. I had an awesome time doing our budgeting project, it was so much fun. I also finished my word work, and I think I am doing pretty wonderful on they Smile Train persuasive essay. Something I can probably work on is maybe the magnetic field on Gizmos. We also worked on our social studies project and we have great ideas. I had an amazing day.

January 14, 2016

Today I had an exceptional Thursday. We had a substitute. Today our social studies groups painted some part of the boats and had a lot of fun.(Well sort of). Something can maybe improve on is maybe not interrupting when someone is speaking. Other than that I had a marvelous Thursday.

P.S. Today the Tricaster started working. (Tricaster something we use in morning announcements, super fun to use!)

January 15, 2016

Today I had great day. We worked with iron fillings and saw how attached they were to a magnet.(We put a ziplock bag over the magnet so the iron wouldn't get so attached to the magnet that we can't pull it off.) I also had fun doing my budgeting project. Something I can improve on is not asking unnecessary questions. ( I used italics on the word unnecessary, because it was one the challenge words this week. I had a fun-filled day today.

January 19, 2016

Today I had a teriffic Tuesday. I learned about the elements of drama. And I had fun working on our social studies, and helping others and sorta doing my budgeting project. I might need to review some things in science. Overall I had a great day, except I am very stressed about the tests tomorrow and if I forget to do something. But let's face it, I will have to get used to it ( middle school ).

January 20, 2016

Today was amazing. We had a lot of tests, and by a lot I mean three. I know I was being dramatic. But still. I had music PLC and I had plenty of fun. We did this really cool sword dance (of course not using real swords). I also started on the SmileTrain video with a couple of other classmates.

January 21, 2016

Today I had an thundering Thursday. We worked on the SmileTrain video. Instrumental Ensemble was really fun. Something that maybe I can work on is being patient? Overall I had an amazing day.


P.S. Today I made a 100% in the science test.

January 22, 2016

Today was supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! Today I won the Red & Black Superstar Award, which was amazing! Because I got chosen from 5th grade! I got a certificate, a mechanical pencil that has red & black Superstar on it. I received this award from the Coppell Education Foundation. I am so thrilled, YAY! Plus, TWO teachers nominated me, Ms. Pjetrovic (my homeroom teacher) and Mrs. Benson (my music teacher). Great accomplishment!

January 25, 2016

Today was epic. We basically just worked on the video the whole day. It turned out to be great. I really enjoyed today.

January 26, 2016

Today was awesome. I did 10 push-ups, until they stopped, and I also made it to top 2 when we jumped rope. And we also uploaded the video on YouTube today. Overall,

I had an amazing day.

January 27, 2016

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY! Today was unbelievable or using one of my spelling words it was not credible. The first good news, is that SmileTrain asked for our epic video to be on their website. SMILETRAIN! The second good news, is that on YouTube our video received 54 views already! The third good news is that we created our own fundraiser! There must be a super long list of how many things that were awesome happened today! You can probably guess that today was really was awesome.

January 28, 2016

Today we were 13% throughout our goal in raising money for SmileTrain. Also, we got a math menu and practiced some science questions. I did iStation and we also read part of Wonder. Today was awesome.

P.S. I was on morning broadcast as anchor 2. It was ssssuuuuppppeeeerrrr fun.

February 1, 2016

Today was epic. I am selling cookies at the book fair and am going to remind people at the back loop where the buses are. Also, I did a couple of exercises during recess. I am really happy because I did well on iStation. Today was awesome.

February 2, 2016

Today was exceptional. I enjoyed helping the teacher finish our fundraiser page. Also, on my math test I got a 90% (missed 1 questions). The question missed was on whether you would use an odometer or a trundle wheel to measure the distance of a sidewalk and a town. I put odometer because I thought that you couldn't really walk across a town, but then realized that it could be a small town. I learned more about refracted and reflected light, and also did a couple exercises at recess. Today was epically- awesome!

February 3, 2016

Today I had an exciting day. We had a substitute designer. I had an fantastic time during the GEO BEE. I got a question wrong where it asked something about Morocco and I thought it was in South America. But I also thought it might have been in Africa, I said South America. But the correct answer was Africa. Today I had an amazing time during math, science, and during reading rotations. Tomorrow is the 100th day of school, and I might dress up as a 100 year old.

February 4, 2016

Today was the 100th day of school! Some designers and learners even dressed as if they were a 100 years old. Today was amazing! We used Skype and talked with some people who work at the SmileTrain. It was really awesome and fun. Our SmileTrain video is now everywhere, because I think that SmileTrain will be posting it on their facebook and twitter pages! I am excited to see how many donations we receive now! Toda was fantabulous.

February 5, 2016

Today was amazing. We had a substitute. She was super kind and gave sticky notes to well behaved students. Then before recess/lunch if we had 3 sticky notes then she would buy us a treat from the cafeteria. I didn't get 3 sticky notes though. but I think she might come on Monday as well. Today I had a lot of fun taking pictures of everyone in the class. I think it might be for the Valentine's Day party. I had an amazing day today.

February 8, 2016

Today was amazing. We had the same substitute that we had on Friday. Today we met James Wand, a magician who taught us about kindness and many other things. There were 3 fifth grade Blue House learners who created a fun-filled week where we dress up each day based on a theme, this part of their affect CBL. Today was amazing and awesome.

February 9, 2016

Today was epic. We have an area project where we design a dream house and find the area of the dream house and the flooring and everything. (Well sorta.) Tomorrow we will be doing the COOKIE SALE. So excited.

February 10, 2016

Today was exciting. No, not exciting, super exciting. I was the photographer and then helped clean up, even though I was supposed to clean up in a different house. I also helped count money, and sell at the book fair. We had a pretty good turn out. This is an experience that I will always remember. Today was AWESOME!

February 11, 2016

Today was amazing. A school offered to match up our donations. So now we have helped 17 kids. I am super excited. Today I am also going to decorate my valentines box and treats.

Today was epic.

Today was amazing. We had a math test and w also learned about the carbon cycle. I am really excited to write my final draft on the prompt, who would you want to be (historical figure) and explain why. I am writing about Mahatma Gandhi. Today was awesome.

February 17, 2016


Today was wondrous. We did the practice pacer in the gym during P.E. and according to what Coach Behr wrote I think I ran 34 laps! I am really happy. Today we also learned about angles and had to write about all we knew about 2-D shapes. Today was amazing.

February 18, 2016

Today was marvelous. We started do ink " doynk". We also started on our quadrilateral poster. Mrs. KK also came and introduced us to do ink. Today was exciting.

February 19, 2016

Today was ecstatic. We finished our poster on quadrilaterals. Mrs. Weiss provided us with pizza for lunch. I made a thank you card for Mrs. Weiss and asked if everyone could sign it. We also recorded our CBL SmileTrain reflections.

Today was excellent. We had a science test. We also finished the one and only, best book, WONDER! We have a chose kind jar, a pledge, and we each got a certificate.

April 13, 2016

Long time no see (reflection). It has been a long time since I wrote a reflection on Smore. I had a good day. I learned something, but sometimes it can be hard. We played and explored Spheros.

April 14, 2016

Today was tremendously terrific Thursday. We had a substitute. I need to stay focused more, and not get distracted. Also, today is picture day and my teacher came for like 5 minutes to take the picture and go on vacation. ( that is why we have a sub). Today was a day where Inthink I could focus a little more.

P.S. today was also the push-up test, I think I did 22 or 23 push-ups. Woo Hoo! YAY!

April 20, 2016

Today was great. Yesterday my class looked at how someone with dyslexia looked at words. We had to decode it. Today Ms. Gordon is going to talk to us about dyslexia, she is a teacher who works with kids with dyslexia. Yesterday we also started e-pals. We created menus today.
