Student -Led Conference

1. Chinese Studies has been interesting for me. I learned a few words from last year to this year. Although I had a better teacher last year, she had been ok. I can work and help others with chinese. She is very serious to us and sometimes she has to yell and that is very interrupting. She is not as good as last year. Although both of them haven't been good with me.

2. Art is good for me and I can learn how to draw and paint. I always liked art to draw pictures and create stuff from thing. I can help others adn get my work doe sometimes if I have time to. One of the things in art we did is the great apes portraits. It was fun drawing a ape that we chose out. Right now were doing the trash kids which I think is going to be fun.

3. Music has been really fun for me. We have been learning how to play the xylophone. We learned about three songs already. We learned songs too. Like Christmas songs and Civil war songs. Well one Civil war song. We do Music ace too. Which is learning notes on the piano and beats.

4. P.E. has always been fun for me. I like sports. I can play the sports and be fun for me to do. Its fun to do new sports that I didn't know it was a sport. But not all of them.

5. Counseling has been fun like the time when we did the telephone game but with a story. I learned how to tell Mr.Daw if I get black mail. I also learned what to do if I get bullied or I see someone get bullied.

Story of Learning


1. I feel that I am doing good in math because I can do math problems and finish them with out difficulty, but not all of them. The math exemplars are hard sometimes , but not all the time. The showing and not telling I can do and explain why and how. did do showing and not telling in my writing, so I think I accomplished that. I reread the things I write to myself and it sometimes made sense, but if it didn't I would make it so it would. I can say I'm doing well in write for the goals. I wrote lots of stories in the year, so I made the writing goals all accomplished.

2. I feel like i'm doing good in reading with Mrs.Zak. I can read in chunks which is reading part by part and not like adn sentence in one second. I did all the goals with Mrs.Zak. I did the main story and talked about it. I discussed different point of views. I discussed the plot, character, and ideas in the book. I talked what the side ideas were. I completed the goals for reading I made.

3. Math is important for my learning. I can feel that I am doing well in math. I check if my answer makes sense or not for the problems I do. I recheck my answer in calculation in my head and I write it to make sure its right or not. I can do math boxes, because its review of what we did or what we did a long time ago. So for the math I accomplished the goals.

My Learning


I like doing math, but I need help with problem stories. I sometimes don't get them. For a times questions I do partial quotients. I'm not that good at division. Unit 4 is about division. It was still fun learning about division. We played games and math problems with division. It was a good unit, but not the best.
