Katherine: Today Reece Friesen can to our school.
He is a comic writer (and drawer, and colorer) and is also Ms. Friesen's (5F) brother!
Mr. Friesen told us abit about himself (his daughter was there too)
and showed us how to draw superman and all those other comic people!
( or something like that)
Good work Katherine...everyone enjoyed this lot! (and even if you aren't into superheros you still learned something right Katherine? ;)

Cornelia: Today in Math I learned about lines. A line segment is a line that has two ends.
A Ray ends at one place and keeps on going on the other side. A line keeps on going forever.

Wednesday, March 18,09
Katherine: Today in math I learned about lines, line segments, and Ray.
A line is something that continues without end in both directions.
A line segment is a line that two end points, and a Ray is a line that has
one end point and keeps on going without ending in the other direction.

Katherine: Today I learned a little more about Prefixes and Sufixes.
I learned that sometimes prefixes make the word the opposite, and sufixes are called tenses. (or something like that)
You're mostly right...suffixes can help to change the tense of a root word.

Katherine: Today T.U.S.C is really fun and long!
Some people are doing two jobs because this is our last T.U.S.C.!
This is also Mr. Barkman's first time(and last) doing it with us, so we're all trying to do great!
So far, it's going really well and I hope it will stay that way!
I'm sure that he enjoyed it too!

Friday, March 13.09
Cornelia: Today we saw another demonstration. It contained corbonated water, and some tablets.
Mr. Barkman put in some water into a film container and put in a tablet and closed the lid. Then he
shook it and put it on the table and the gas started to fizz and tthe lid popped off.
Do you know what the topic was that he was teaching, or what he wanted you to learn by showing you that?

Thursday, March 12,09
Katherine: Today I learned about adjectives. An adjective is a word describing something.
For ex. The playful dog made me laugh. Playful would be the adjective, because its describing what the dog is.

Thursday, March 12.09

a bottle and a ballon. The gas wanted to escape.

Wednesday, March 11.09
Katherine: Today in art, we made more tessellations (I learned how to spell that word in spelling today)
Making a tessellation is so hard, but at least I know what it means- a tessellation is a
repeating pattern that leaves no empty spaces! Its really hard to get the tessellation to match up just right!

Wednesday, March 10.09
Cornelia:Today I learned about prefixes and sufixes. Ex. reread, read,reading
Some words were hard and some words can't have prefixes.

LxW=Area and LxWxH=Volume.
Good!


Monday,March 2.09
Cornelia:Today social I learned that the Mi"kmaq and the French
were friends. They traded, the French gave the Mi'kmaq metal things like
needles and also cloth. The French people got furs and old robes.
The French brought along sicknesses and the kids and elders of the
Mi'kmaq started to die.That is sad isn't it Mr.Neufeld?
Yes, it is very sad. Newcomers didn't always know how they would affect others by their sicknesses, their knowledge, or just their presence!

Mr.N- These portraits are very impressive!! (I agree!)

Wednesday, February 4, 09

Lena: Today I learned alot of stuff and it's all about math! We learned about perimiter and area. Perimiter is the outside of a thing or place,and area is the inside. In grade 5 we messure the outside of a thing and add it all together then we get the perimiter. For the area part I count the squares inside the thing I messure,and thats how I get the area.

Tuesday, February 3, 09

Carolin: Today we got time to prepare for T.U.S.C. in the computer lab. I'm doing International World News. China's Christians Suffer for their faith is my topic. Mr.Peter Xu Yongze is a christian in China where Christians get killed for their faith in christainanity. He says ''They hung me

Carolin: Today, I learned why the vikings came to North America and why they left. A merchant got blown of course and saw land in the west (North America) and told Leif Eriksson about it. Leif was tierd of Greenland and decided to investigate. He left Greenland and sailed west and sure enough, he found North America. They left their new discovered land probaly because the weather changed so quickly that it became hard for them to live or maybe it was because of dieases.
(tneufeld: Once again...super post. Keep it up!)

Archived Learning Posts

Good examples from the past:


Monday, April 14th, 2008

: Today, in math I learned how to measure an angle, first you have to draw your angle (it should be a ray). Then with yor protractor line up the "center/centre" however you spell it, with the dot (at the beggining of the ray). Make sure that if your protracter has some space under the base line you don't line it up at the very bottom of that space. ONLY LINE IT UP WITH THE BASE LINE OR ELSE YOU MIGHT GET A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT NUMBER. Then you look at which number the top line is at ( that will help you for the next instructions) Make a litttle ark and put the number(where the top line was at) with a little degree sign inside the ark. So i'm pretty sure those are all the steps to measuring an angle!!
(Now that is a complete post!! Good work! MrN)

: Hello, today in art we all drew different things about India. It was really fun! Me and Tommy were doing a map of India that had all the provinces of India. In the map I learned a bunch of provinces I didn't know, even though it's my home country! Well that's pretty much what I learned today, see ya another time.

Thursday, April 10th, 2008

: Hi, today in gym we learned how to play streetball which is 3 on 3 basketball perfectly. There's three things I learned about 5n (student's these are great tips for your teacher's birthday party, keep'em top secret):
1. There good at tricking the teacher for example tricking him with some students saying the door's broken (when there are party arrangements going on inside)!
2. There good at keeping secrets, like about the surprise birthday party!
3. There also good at tricking the teacher with code names like the fraction party quiz (which is a reminder about Mr.N's birthday party)!
That's all see ya! This note will selfdestruct in a couple of years.
(Thanks for the info! ;) MrTN)

Wednesday, April 9th, 2008

: Hello, today in music I learned how to play the whole song of God save the Queen. I also learned a shortcut method in math by Andrew. The shortcut was for the people who don't like drawing pictures to show the fraction. All you had to do was take the denominator and multiply it with the numerator on the opposite fraction. Then you do the same with the other fraction, and the number that equals the most from both of them, is your answer! I think that method can come in handy! Well that's all for today, bye for now!
(You have done some excellent clear and detailed posts this week Manan. You are very responsible! Keep up the good work! MrTN)

Take something pointy to poke holes on it. on one side, you make 1 hole, then on the other one 2 holes, then the next one 3 holes and so on till you get to 6.

5nDakmen: Today I learned that if you don't have a dice but you have a pencil you can dig little holes in it with the numbers 1-6
on the sides of the pencil, that way it will be just like a dice. We did this for a statistics and probabilits activits.

5nsydrem: Today in social studies, I learned that portages travelled far for fur, they were called "runners of the woods", every family had one of them, and they made good money.

5ncelcar: Today, I learned some things about a video camera. Well to start, the white button turns it on, then there's a button I think on the top right that zooms in and out. You just have to make sure that if your filming a movie that you don't zoom in and out too quickly, cause then it doesn't look very smooth. Another thing to remember is don't move the camera back and forth too fast cause then people might get kinda dizzy. A tripod is called a tripod cause it has 3 legs (just incase you didn't know.) Well that's one cool thing a learned about today!!!

5ncelcar: Today, in math I learned how to measure an angle, first you have to draw your angle (it should be a ray). Then with yor protractor line up the "center/centre" however you spell it, with the dot (at the beggining of the ray). Make sure that if your protracter has some space under the base line you don't line it up at the very bottom of that space. ONLY LINE IT UP WITH THE BASE LINE OR ELSE YOU MIGHT GET A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT NUMBER. Then you look at which number the top line is at ( that will help you for the next instructions) Make a litttle ark and put the number(where the top line was at) with a little degree sign inside the ark. So i'm pretty sure those are all the steps to measuring an angle!!
(Now that is a complete post!! Good work! MrN)

5nsydrem:Today, when we did our science projects, I learned that the higher the board is the faster the marble will go and the lower the board is the slower the marble will go.

5njusbal: Today at school our class played Math Bingo and I learned some new words that I've heard before but it meant a different meaning. One of them was a compass, and I though it would be the compass with the needle. Instead it was actually a metal thing from your geometry set where you put a pencil on one end and there is a pointy sharp thing at the other end and it probably helps you make a perfect circle.

5nmarval: Today in Social Studies, I learned abourt alot of things they used to have. There was a kind of bark that they used to have. They used it for headaches and other sickness. Also, if you cut the piece of wood, you can use it as your shoe lace or make it a string.

5nmarval: Today in school, I learned things about engineers and what they do. Engineers wear a silver ring so that they remember that it is important to make things right and make it strong, so that the building or bridge won't shake or fall down. Engineers design alot of things.
(The fact about the ring was a very interesting fact wasn't it? I have never heard this before, and I think it is a good idea! Mrtneufeld)

Thursday, May 22, 2008
5njusbal: Today at school, a guy name Shawn or however you spell it came to our class to teach us about Engineering. Our class got divided into groups and we had to make straw skyscrapers. I learned how to build them and how to make them stronger, you can do that by adding triangles. It makes it stronger because the weight spreads around and it doesn't make it go in one certain spot. I also learned a new word Torsion which means twisting(I think). (You did very well in class today remembering the facts that Shawn said and participating! I was proud of all of the students who did this! Good work on this post as well! Mrtneufeld)

Wenesday, May 21, 2008
5njusbal: Todya I learned 3 new geometry words. They are: Angle which means 2 rays that share an end point, a Vertex meaning the "end point' on an angle, and Congruent which means 2 angles that are the same size (the same).

5nmanbha: Hello, today in music I learned how to play the whole song of God save the Queen. I also learned a shortcut method in math by Andrew. The shortcut was for the people who don't like drawing pictures to show the fraction. All you had to do was take the denominator and multiply it with the numerator on the opposite fraction. Then you do the same with the other fraction, and the number that equals the most from both of them, is your answer! I think that method can come in handy! Well that's all for today, bye for now!
(You have done some excellent clear and detailed posts this week Manan. You are very responsible! Keep up the good work! MrTN)
