Math Reflection

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?

It is important to know how to divide because when we have to share something we can use division to find out. The time we use division is when we share something or split something equally.

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.

Well the most difficult thing for me was dividing smaller numbers than the divisor. Example 6/3.20. I found out that the way to do this division was to do 320/6 than put the decimal point where you think it would go. The way to find where to put the decimal point is by making a estimate.


The parable about the Sower and the Seed is about a sower scattering seeds everywhere. The seeds that land on the roads that gets eaten by the crows. Like the person that heard the lord, but does not do anything about it and the evil one will come and snatch it away. The seeds that landed on the rocks is the person that hears the lord and at once receives it with joy. But since he has no root he does not last long. The seeds that landed on the thorns are the ones who heard the lord, but worries of this life. The seeds that landed on good soil is the ones who hears the lord and understands it.

The sower, Jesus and the people listening to Jesus. The lesson that they learned is that if you hear from your lord do what he says and do not ignore. This connects with my life because when someone told me a secret I was like the one who was planted on the rocks because it didn't last long until I told someone.

Writing Reflection

1. What do I notice about myself as a writer as I read through my work?

I notice that I have a lot of errors or I forgotten a word. Also I notice that I use the same word to many times. I realize that I need to add some more details.

2. How have I changed as a writer so far?

I have changed by knowing how to use commas when you have a conversation. Also now I know how to use capital letters, punctuations and paragraphing. Now I use synonyms for some words I used too much.

3. What are three things I do well as a writer?

First I try describing the object. For example a baseball spinning will be like the spinning bullet.
Second thing is that I try making people get into the story.
Third I try to stick on 1 subject.

4. What are some things I want to get stronger at as a writer?

Try not to tell I want to show the writing. I also want to know how to use explanation marks and try not to make people bored by using the same word and also saying the same thing over and over.

5. What is my favorite piece, and what are the things I love about it?

My favorite piece is my first grade 5 narrative, Injured because it seems like its my first ever writing piece. Also I feel like I did a good job on that piece because for me it felt like everyone was in that story


I liked playing factor captor because it helps me learn the factors of numbers I don't know. It also helps me memorize some of the prime numbers I don't know that well. It also was a fun game because it helps me now my multiplication table over 10. The best part was that I kept on beating Pablo in this game.

Arrays could help people remember the factors of a number because an 8 by 3 array could help me know that some of 24's factors are 8 and 3. Also it could help you memorize 8x3=24 because you could count the numbers of dots.

Page 13 lesson 1.5
I liked this lesson because it helps me know the divisibility rule. Because usually I have to take a long time to find out that a certain number is divisible by that number.

My Learning

I have some trouble in writing in correct paragraphing, spelling, punctuation, and sometimes using capital letters correctly. I really never learn how to use these writing rules correctly so I basically try my best to find out where to put them. I perhaps could only know how to use these writing rules correctly by knowing the strategies to use it correctly. I will need to learn it from you, Mr. Daw and please show me how to do it and also explain how to use it. It might take me a long time to figure out how to use the strategy because I am kind of a slow learning. If it is simple I might get the strategy easily.
