Y5 Daily Reflections

January 6, 2016

Today's day of learning was amazing! The best part of my day was when we learned more about Basem and Tejal and welcomed them into the famiLEE. I was glad to hear about how Ian Weiss did at the spelling bee at CMS West. I think I could improve on my math quick check scores, but other than that, today was great.

January 7, 2016

Today was a great day! The only part I could improve on was at recess. We were playing basketball and were fighting over a silly thing that we could have solved ourselves! We can't play basketball again until Monday, but I think I can live without it! I finished my science matter task cards, so i'm happy!

January 8,2016

Today, we started our IMPACT unit. In our group, we have Neha M., Melisha, Jesse, Ian W., Patrick, Varsha and me. We chose to do a skit about The Boston Tea Party. I hope we think of something good!

January 12, 2016

We started a new unit in science; Circuits! We tried to make our light bulb light but we couldn't. When Ms. Pjetrovic showed us how, we figured it out. Yesterday, Ms. Pjetrovic's friend back in her country came. Her name was Ines. She is 12 years old. Today at midnight my cousin little sister will come. If it's at midnight, it will technically be tomorrow. I can't wait!

January 13, 2016

Today, we started our budget project! I got the exact same cards that Neha M. did! We are single, have no children and are authors. Exactly what I wanted. Today after I get home from school, I get to wake up my baby sister from har nap and play all day! I got a 4/5 on my magnetism science assesment, but other than that today was a awesome day.

January 14, 2016

Today we had the best substitute ever! She owned Patrick 4 times, and she let me own Jesse 3 times! I didn't finish my math worksheet but I finished my science worksheet. And according to Ian W., Neha M. flew today at basketball. This is what he said: " Neha learned how to fly, but then she forgot and fell. Whoosh!"

Today, Ms. Pjetrovic showed us a lab on magnets and iron shavings. It was so cool how she mixed the shavings with gravel and citric acid, the separated them. It looked lime a hairy spider or something. Speaking of something, Tejal just joined the Furious 5, or as we call it now, the Something 6! We have a 3 day weekend because Monday is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. On Monday, i'm going to Neha M.'s house to work on the social studies props. Speaking of social studies, Fatima joined our group! We already wrote our whole script, and I have 14 lines. Wish us luck when we perform!

Today was cool. I am actually doing this reflection on the 21st because we didn't do one on the 20th. I forgot what I did, so this is it.

January 21, 2016

Today was good. We checked our math and science today. I am out of time. I did good on the tests.

January 26, 2016

Lately, I haven't been writing reflections because I don't have any time at the end of the day. At least today, I have time. So I will write. Today was Pranavi's birthday. If you din't know who Pranavi is, she is a learner from B2. I can't wait for Thursday because honor choir is going on a field trip to CHS! We are facing off Valley Ranch and Pinkerton. We are going to kick their butts(in a good way) because we are sooooooo awesome!!!! Wish us luck!

January 27, 2016

I can't wait until Thursday because we are going on a honor choir field trip to CHS! As I said in the last reflection, we are going to kick some butts out there. We made a Smile Train website and the actual Smile Train office in New York City asked us if they could put our video on their website!!!!!!Hopefully we will raise some money and, as Smile Train says, CHANGE THE WORLD ONE SMILE AT A TIME!

January 29, 2016

On our Smile Train webpage, people we don't even know donated $277! Yesterday, honor choir did really good. I figured out that it actually wasn't a contest. Oops! But we did good. That's all that matters. If you want to see our video, check the video below. Other than that, bye!

Today, I checked our Smile Train website and we have $600 dollars! In science, we used mirrors and and a prism to learn about reflection and refraction. I don't have any time left to write today, so I will write more tomorrow. Bye!

February 11, 2016

February 19, 2016

I haven't done a reflection in a while so I will do one now. I got honorable mention in CGA. Mrs. Kastrounis called me to the office and I thought I was in trouble. Then I realized that she called me down to give me the award. If you check on twitter, you can see a picture that Mrs. Kastrounis posted. Today was a great day!

March 10, 2016

I haven't wrote a reflection in a long time because i didn't have any time. Today was the fun run. I ran 27 laps. Mrs. KK gave us a treat because we got 100 on both reading passages. She got us ring pops! Today was a great day!
