# Nainika's Daily Reflection

## January 5, 2016

Today I had a great day! It was really fun to make a new friend her name is Anoreen.

When we went to specials today and had a substitute his name was Mr. Odun.

He was really fun. After that Mrs. Williams read us the book Number the Stars. It was really interesting. Then we did workshop and went to lunch and recces. Finally I did math zones and went home. Today I really liked how my day went it was really fun! I hope I will have a good day tomorrow too!

## January 6, 2016

Today I had a really nice day! I had a group and the group members were Jordyn, Michelle, and Minne. We all had to make a circle map about energy. We had a lot of ideas. Then we had to write the definition of energy without searching up for anything to help us with it.

I also learned to put commas at the right place. It's really simple. Commas keep words and ideas from running together. I had a nice day today. I hope it will be great tomorrow too!

## January 7, 2016

Today I learned how to add fractions in a different way the problem was 6/5 + 11/10. It was a fifth grade problem but we did it anyway. We had to first decompose it so it would be easier. Then we turned in to fractions. Then money. Finally we got our answer. Our answer was 2.3. I learned a lot of different things in fractions today. I hope that tomorrow I will have a fun and learning day!

## January 8, 2016

Today I had a fun day! I finished everything that was due today and if you finish everything you get to do flex time. Flex time is when you can catch up on anything you didn't finish yet, but you only have flex time every Friday. We also did one word that's one word for your New Year resolution. First my word was "Active" , but then Mrs. Kastrounis helped me a lot then my new one word was "Effort" and that also matched to my sentences. Today I had a great day! I hope I will have a nice day on Monday!

## January 11, 2016

Today I had a really challenging day. We had to try to find out how much money did the new Star Wars movie make. Mrs. Williams told us that it was 8th grade math, but we still tried it. It all was a FAIL, but it was the First Attempt In Learning. After that we did a race to writing stamina. We only had 20 minutes to write down how much you can. I wrote 176 words. Today I had a fun and challenging day! I hope tomorrow I will a great too!

## January 12, 2016

My biggest "hooray" about today is to finally learn about what "COME AND TAKE IT" means. It represents that Mexico gave Texas a canon ,but then Mexico wanted their canon back ,but Texas said "COME AND TAKE IT." Then Mexico came bot they lost the war and Mexico kept on losing. Their discussing about war was in the Alamo which was in Houston. After that Texas came and owned Alamo. Finally, Mexico got so mad that they gathered 5,000 soldiers against 250 soldiers Mexico won the Alamo back. Today I had so much fun because I learned a lot about history. I hope tomorrow I will have a great day too!

## January 13, 2016

Today I learned a lot about science. I learned about different forms in energy. There is light energy, thermal energy, electrical energy, and mechanical energy. I also finished learning about the Texas Revolution. Then we learned about different ways to make strong closings. Mrs. Williams gave us a lot of examples on that. Today I had a great day! I hope tomorrow I will have a nice day too!

## January 14, 2016

I will make Mrs. Williams proud of me today because I will clean up everything and I also liked Ms. Hogan (Subsitute) she was really helpful. She helped me ,so I can finish my science paper. I had really nice day with our subsitute. I hope l will have a fun day tomorrow!
