#1: Math--Unit 8 Math Test (with Open Response)

What

did you learn from this assignment?

In

unit 8 I learned how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide fractions and mixed

numbers. I also had to apply the skill of renaming and reducing fractions. Part

A was summative because we have learned this and had opportunities to show our

learning before the test. Part B is formative because we are still learning

these skills.

The

open response problem required me to think critically and explain my thinking.

The problem asked me to apply the skills in a multi-step problem. I also

had to solve the problem in more than one way. The main focus of the open

response is explaining and showing my work.

What

are you proud of on this assignment?

I

am proud of understanding a bit more of math, mostly with learning better in

subtracting, multiplying, and dividing fractions. I am also proud of how I took

my time to try to get it right.

Reflecting

back on your work, what could you improve?

Reducing

my answer, and I need to work on fractions better and to learn my multiplication

facts.

My

goal for the remainder of the year is to remember my multiplication facts and to

get better in fractions.

#2: Science--Invention Convention

What

did you learn from this assignment? The

invention project was a month long project that started with an idea to solve a

problem. During the process I thought of a solution, designed the invention,

tested the invention, documented the process, and finally presented to a panel

of judges. My invention had to fit within the theme of “Reduce, Reuse, or

Recycle”

I

also learned about how inventions work, such as Anaghas water filter.

What

are you proud of on this assignment?

I

was proud of my invention because I think I had a decent project. Though it

couldve been better because my idea was not reusable and only works in

magazines\comics

Reflecting

back on your work, what could you improve?

I

could improve on my invention by finding a way to make it reusable,and to be

able to put it in normal book,not just comics and magazines.

My

goal for the remainder of the year is to be a little more imaginative when

coming up with project ideas.

#3: Literature Circle--Book Quilt

What

did you learn from this assignment?

After

I participated in Literature Circles I created a book quilt. I had to

identify the theme of the book and support it with evidence from the book. I

also had to come up with an illustration and symbols that represented the theme

of the book. This activity taught me about an author’s purpose for writing

and how to support my ideas with evidence.

What

are you proud of on this assignment?

I

am proud I was able to describe the book clear enough to get a nice grade and so

i could imagine what was happening in my head.I am also proud of my drawing and

the border

Reflecting

back on your work, what could you improve?

I

could've given more specific examples to the theme in my paragraph so that the

reader could better imagine the scene or what happened in their head

better.

My

goal for the remainder of the year is to learn to explain better so the reader

will be able to know what happened without even reading the

book.

#4: Unit 4 Reading Street Test

What

did you learn from this assignment?

The

unit reading test is taken after we complete our reading unit. This unit

we learned the following reading strategies: questioning, predicting,

generalizing, drawing conclusions, visualizing, and using graphic sources. We

also learned a lot of grammar in this unit. In this test we had to read a

passage and answer questions about the reading. We had to apply the

reading strategies to demonstrate our understanding.

What

are you proud of on this assignment?

That

I don't have much to improve on,and how I improved in drawing

conclusions

Reflecting

back on your work, what could you improve?

I

mostly need to work on compare and contrast and pronouns and antecedents.

My

goal for the remainder of the year is to get better in reading and english

classes by studying and asking questions.
