Our class had a family share. One thing we did was showed our parents is our memoirs. It was very fancy for us, we used ribbons and expensive paper our parents must have been surprised. We also made Chinese chops and we got to use carving tools. We did have a lot of homework to learn some Chinese characters. We showed funny martial art videos that we made, I wonder what our parents thought of that! Then there is the long lab report we showed from science class. The lab reports were about plants and were a heavy load of work. In writing we have been working on memoirs, and most of us only finished and published them yesterday – only just in time! We made covers for them, and shared them with our families. Some of us wrote in narrative form, and others chose to write in poetic form. It was hard but they came out great. Since we are studying ancient China we made shapes with tangrams and we figured out the area depending on the length of the square. We all were given different lengths, so the area of our shapes were different. Our parents tried the tangrams and we showed them our tangram posters. We also showed the math poster video that Ms G. recorded when we presented our polygon project to the class – we each chose different polygons and had to use what we knew about triangles and quadrilaterals to figure out the number of degrees in the polygon. I think now I will skip to the most fun part- we had a 24 game tournament and the kids won 88 to 44! We kids doubled them exactly. It was great sharing our work with our families.

On November 11th we had all our family come in so we could show them our work. It was from 8:00 to 8:45. We had little red commenting booklets at our seats so that after people looked at our work, they could write in what they thought. People could go around (parents and students) and look at everyone’s work, and comment if they wanted to.
Some of the things we showed them were our timelines. We made them by picking two life events from each year. Then we wrote them into books and illustrated them. We also showed them our blackberry books. They are called blackberries because they are dark purple, the color of blackberries. We use them like sketch books. Sometimes we use them for art, and sometimes we get assignments from Ms. G. Like once we got a funny shaped blue piece of paper that we had to turn into something. The other thing we showed them were glogster. Glogster is place where you can make online posters. We made glogs about number theory terms and that’s what we showed them.
