Reading - Text Composition

In reading we have been learning to  recognize the way words, sentences and paragraphs are put together (eg sentences that express cause and effect) and use this knowledge to understand complicated texts.

Here is a link to our online modelling book Modelling book

These documents show evidence of my learning during this unit:
(link your own learning for each of these activities. Please make sure your sharing settings are open)

Defining parts of a speech
Types of sentences
Analyzing paragraph construction
Explaining the relationship between components of texts.
Complex text analysis

My Next Step: Is to continue to apply this new knowledge of parts of texts, to help me make sense of increasingly complicated text types. 

Operations using fractions, percentages, decimals and integers.

In Maths we have been learning to: Understand operations using fractions, percentages, decimals and integers.

Here is some evidence of my learning.

Include screenshots for all 6 IXL activities that you have completed.

Extended Abstract assessment task - Link your Lazer Blazer task here. Include links to the answer sheet and the activity sheet.
Lazer Blazer activity sheet
Lazer Blade answer sheet.

Something that challenged me during this unit of learning was remembering the formulas for each of the IXL activities because I would always get mixed up in remembering them.

My next step is to continue to apply these strategies to real life/ problem solving situations.

Visual Art # 10 ( excellence )

Today was our first session for Visual art.We started off by talking about the types of art and looking at Claude Monet.After, we started to work on a slide looking at the different conventions of art some of them are: symmetry,Balance,proportion, and surface texture.Then we did some more research on Claude Monet's art work.Once, we were done we were allowed to use chalk pastels. ( which are the thing we will use for our final project and practice with) We watched a video where we had to practice the different techniques my favorite one of them was feathering and blending as I liked how they looked with the different colors. A picture we found of Claude Monet called luncheon on the  grass  we compared to another artist  called Edouard Monet.
Here are the two pictures of each of them:
