Math Reflection Unit 4

1. Tell why you think it is important to be able to divide numbers. For what kind of problems do you need to use division?

We have to know how to divide because if we need to divide something equally like money. If you want to divide a gift for your parents, you have to divide the money equally.

2. Tell what part of this unit was the most difficult for you and why. Describe what you did to overcome any difficulties you had.

The most difficult was when we needed to divide decimals and get an excact number. Or divide a number that becomes a decimal. To overcome this I just kept on trying and kert on going.


Jesus, the crow, Disciples and a crowd.

Jesus was telling a parable about a sower. It is about a the sower scattering his seeds on the ground. And he scatters them in 4 different places. The first place is on the path and the crows pick it up and eat it. Then it falls into rocks with shallow soil. It would spring up and get scorched when the sun came up. the other one falls on thorns and wen it grows it gets choked. Then the last one falls on good soil and grows nicely. This parable is the only parable that Jesus explains. The fist one means the people that hear the word of god(the seed) forget about it and get eaten by the crow(the evil one). The next one receives it with joy but dies away because it has no reason to live. After that the person hears the word of god and worries that of his life and the deceitfulness of wealth and choke. The last one accepts it and sows it into his heart and makes it a part of his life and lives well.

Writing Reflection

Writing Self Assessment

1. What do I notice about myself as a writer as I read through my work?

I notice that I sometimes miss out a word when I write too fast or I don't finish a word. It sometimes doesn't make sense or it's just not worded right. I think that I have to read back sometimes because finishing a sentence might make it sound better and sometimes it doesn't and I can't catch it. I just want to change it in a good way, in a blink of an eye.

2. How have I changed as a writer so far?

I'm adding a lot of better quality and better paragraphing.

3. What are three things I do well as a writer?

  • I add humor in my work
  • I'm very descriptive
  • A wide mind of imagination
4. What are some things I want to get stronger at as a writer?

I want to work on my punctuation and to be more specific.

5. What is my favorite piece, and what are the things I love about it?

I really like this piece I wrote at home and it's called the three genius pigs and the massacre wolf. I really like this because it was really imaginative because the wolf had a lot weapons and the pigs always thwart his plan. It turns out that the only person hurting the wolf is himself. The wolf is also really stupid( he never past the 3rd grade). This was a violent book but when I read it to other people they laugh really hard, most cry.


When I pick the highest prime number, it makes me feel really smart. I also like it when I find a factor when it's the other person turn. Adding the totals was really fun.

Making an array is good because when you make all the possible ways then you can find the factors like: 4 by 5, 2 by 10. 1 by 20 so 1,2,4,5,10, and 20 would be all the factors of 20.

I really liked lesson 1.5 on page 14 and 15 because you had to figure out if a number was a multiple of 2,3,6,9,5, and 10. to do that you had to use all the strategies to figure out the question. Example:
2; the second number had to be an even number(2,4,6,8,0)3; the digits had to add up to a multiple of 3, 6; it has to be a multiple of 2 and 3, 9; digits add up to a multiple of 9, 5; The last digit is 5 or 0, 10; The last digit is 0.

Molly's Dream

What dream did Molly have?

She wanted to be exactly like Mrs. Simmons because of all of her skills in samplers and sewing. Also Intelligence and because Mrs. Simmons has her own business. She wants a cottage right next to a pond with ducks and geese and a little dog. She wanted her family to be whole again.

What will she need to do to make her dreams come true?

Start her own business, be a seamstress after her indentures so she can make money to build a cottage near a pond and maybe get the family back together again

What? Reading time? Whooppee!

When I finish reading a book and I have to write a journal about it I really struggle with it. When I come across a word that I don't know I finish the sentence and try to guess what it means. But if I'm really stomped then I look it up in the dictionary. I read alot better and get into my book when the air around me is still and quiet. I don't like writting on post-it's because I don't like stopping when I'm in "my zone" and we think about our reading all the time why write it down because it'll probally take two hours to write down everything.
