## Math Unit 7 Reflection (Yes, another one)

Hi!

Yes, ANOTHER math test popped up again. Guess what? This time it was about Exponents and Negative Numbers (harder than it sounds). Here is the list of things I improved and some thing that I need to work on:

– I did well when it came to identifying powers of ten for the numbers given on the test

-I better work on adding and subtracting positive and negative numbers

-Plotting/creating line graphs seemed to be my thing this unit

-I have to work more on telling wether or not a number sentence is true, probably because of overconfidence

-I also did well in learning and using scientific notation!

G’day,

Looooooring 🙂

## Langtau Island Field Trip Refelction

Hey guys & gals,

On April Fools Day, which is April 1st, to April second, the entire 5th Grade went to Hong Kong’s beautiful Lantau Island and we stayed overnight in a place called the YWCA ( you know YMCA? This is the Young WOMAN’s Christian association ) the 5th Grade teachers also split all of the 5th grade students in two halves, so each group was about 20 people or so. The first day our group we went to rid half of a tiny beach of trash. In the afternoon, we planted our own trees and we had to climb a mountain on Lantau for about half an hour, (maybe even a little longer). Then we had to climb the SECOND half of the mountain to plant the trees.
On the second day we went to learn about environments like the wet marshland and the dry marshland. They were both full of BUFFALOS! BUFFALO! But Bill wasn’t there. Aww 🙁 . Then it’s me and Jialiang (and maybe Leo)’s favourite part, SWIMMING IN THE BEACH (different beach. Not the one where we picked up the trash). Overall, the trip was extremely fun and we learned a lot about our environment and how to protect it.

Here is a slideshow of all the photos we took:

Bye and make sure you help protect our earth!

Loring 🙂
